We are currently very busy preparing for our Peace Proms Concert in the RDS, Simmonscourt on 4 Feb. 2018. Our choir of 32 pupils from 2nd class+ meet every Thursday after school for practice with Yvonne and Mrs Bockett.

All ready for Sunday the 4th now!

GIRAFFES FOCUS 1!! (Bet that’s got you wondering!)

There is absolutely no truth to the rumour that after practice at the National Sports Centre in Blanchardstown on 9 January that we went to a local playground! We have no idea where you got that notion!

The Middle Room have had great fun lately making and doing in their arts and crafts lessons.  So with all those toilet roll inserts they saved and long sticks got from the garden, you can see below what they created.  The children came together in groups and had great fun with extra long paint brushes!

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.
