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.

This year’s Big Day Out was to The National Stud and Japanese Gardens in Co. Kildare. We learned lots about horse breeding and rearing and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings of the gardens. Another good choice for our very popular September whole-school outing – Our Big Day Out!

In our last week of school in June 2017, the Senior Room took on to complete a class project on Francis Ledwidge to mark the 100th anniversary since his death. We had been requested by the Ledwidge100 organising committee to complete and submit this project which was displayed at the commemorative cycle from Slane to Dunsany which took place in July. Two of our pupils Matthew Moan & Jesse Agnew presented the project at this historical event.

It wasn’t our first attempt at a class history project, having submitted a project on WW 1 to the Dept. of Education Centenary History Project in 2014.
