Irish Junior Maths Competition
Congratulations to Peter Treanor, 1 Foster who finished in the top 60 of the Irish Junior Maths Competition 2021 out of 6,300 1st year students nationally. This is a massive achievement and we are very proud of him.
World Book Day
On Thursday March 4th DGS celebrated the literary world virtually and in school. Students got involved in the various competitions running which included baking a cake of their favourite book, dressing up as their favourite literary character and designing their own bookmark among others. There was a wonderful response to the day’s events!
TYs recently had the pleasure of listening to a talk by Mr. Baker on the overview of our school structure which really helped to support their current studies on rules and power as well as decision-making. The Q and A style meeting was very interactive and beneficial for the students.
On Wednesday 24th March, we held our first Diversity Day. 6th Form Politics and Society students worked very hard to organise this great day of inclusion and open conversation. 5th and 6th Form students as well as students learning at home, wore clothes from their own culture and jerseys that represent where they’re from. Leas Cheann Comhairle Catherine Connolly, and Parliamentary Education Officer Conor Reale spoke to our Politics and Society students virtually which was a great source of inspiration for them. Thank you to all those to participated in what we hope is the first of many Diversity Days to come!
1st to 4th Form students enjoyed a well-deserved break from the screens on Thursday 25th March and instead worked in virtual groups to complete practical projects such as running/walking 5k, making a figure out of match sticks and taking pictures of daffodils among many others. Students really relished the day as they challenged themselves to learn new skills at the end of a great term of hard-work and focus.
