First Year Boys reach Regional Basketball final

Our 1st Year (red) boys basketball team topped their group and then faced Headford in the semi-final. Dunmore had home advantage and we got an opportunity to use our new scoreboard which was purchased with funds from our Students Council. We were  slow to settle before we got to grips with the strong Headford side but took control in the second half & won the game 32-9. We will play St. Raphael’s Loughrea in the Regional final in NUIG on 21st March

It’s a wrap… The Sound of Music concludes.

Well done to all involved in our fantastic production… The Sound of Music.

After weeks of practice, it’s had to believe that our 4 shows are over. We want to congratulate our fantastic students on this wonderful production. All of their time, hard work and dedication over the past few weeks have certainly paid off and made this musical the huge success that it was. I have no doubt you will look back on these past few weeks as some of your best memories from secondary school in years to come.

Well done to you all, you should all be very proud of yourselves!
