DCS Past-Pupils Bring Back Their Own Students for Science Week


Principal Jim Long was delighted to welcome two past pupils to DCS this week. Paul French and Richard O’ Leary are now both fifth class teachers in St. Anthony’s Boys N.S., Ballinlough. As part of Science Week, Paul and Richard brought their classes to their Alma Mater, to participate in the DCS Science Week programme. The students enjoyed an event-filled morning and were overwhelmed by the excitement of Science and Maths in the school.

Both Paul and Richard commented on their fond memories of the school, and in particular on the strong emphasis on the pursuit of high academic standards at DCS. Indeed, the presence of so many DCS alumni on the teaching staff of all of the local boys’ primary schools is a testament to the value we place on academic achievement and the importance of education.
