In October 2017, Dunsany NS held a reception to welcome back our past pupil Megan Thynne, All Ireland Camogie medal winner. Megan accompanied by her mum Dawn and the winning team manager John Davis, gave an inspiring talk to all pupils about the importance of sport/doing what you enjoy most. Megan talked about the importance of accepting defeat in whatever it is you do and getting back up again and keeping on going. John Davis paid tribute to Megan’s great team spirit and can-do attitude. He told us all what a beautiful and modest person Megan is and how valued she is amongst her team members. Mrs Bockett recalled those very same qualities in Megan while she was a pupil in Dunsany NS.

Congratulations Megan, John and team on your All Ireland Win! A wonderful achievement.

We had our over-night school tour to Knockcree and Bray, Co. Wicklow for 5th & 6th class in June 2017. We can be seen foraging for bugs (although we didn’t have to look too hard for the ones that ate us alive in the Wicklow heat!), building a 3-man hut from what we could find on the forest floor, (+ mean-looking doormen!), making fire without matches, night-time paddling in the stream and posing outside the hostel with the Sugarloaf in the background.

On Saturday we travelled through Enniskerry village and onto Bray town, where we got to play on the beach and paddle in the sea. Lunch and a spot of retail therapy followed. As you can see the boys were particularly fond of Claires!!

Whilst 5th and 6th class got to go on their ‘special’ overnight school tour in June 2017, 4th class were not forgotten. In blistering heat, they took off for a long day to Clara Lara Funpark in Wicklow. This has to be one of the most popular venues for our school tours. Seeing Yvonne our SNA, and Mrs Bockett struggle to row out onto the lake is always a good laugh!

We held a different type of Open Afternoon this year. We opened our classrooms with their laid out work stations on Sunday afternoon, 11 June 2017. We had great attractions inside and out. Our student body and new pupils (and some past pupils!) got to enjoy each other’s company, have fun at all the outdoor play stations, enjoy some lovely treats (supplied by mums and dads) and show off their work stations all under the supervision of mums and dads, teachers and past pupils. Huge thanks to all who helped make this a very enjoyable afternoon.
