This year’s Christmas production was the brainchild of the Senior Room. There was a bit of everything in there – the 12 days of Christmas, the Grinch, Mr & Mrs Claus, gingerbread men, pine trees, all-sorts of angels – naughty & nice -,  juicy holly berries and children through the ages, a little drummer boy, little stars, shepherds, children at play, etc… And of course rappers, ‘coz no Christmas Play is complete without the rappers!

Parents and grandparents enjoyed the variety of poems, raps, songs and good humour which the children put on display that night. All wrapped up in a lovely theme – ‘Where is Christmas?’

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 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.
