Win For The U-16 Basketball Team

MaryThe Dunshaughlin U16 Girls Basketball team secured yet another win in an away match against Longford last Tuesday. This talented squad of young girls , coached by Ms Reidy and Ms Regan, is undefeated in the legaue so far.

Longford started the game strong, but it soon became clear that they were no match for Dunshaughlins fantastic offence. Kelly O'Dwyer picked up the first points of the game for Dunshaughlin. A strong first five of Rachel Huijsdens, Kelly O'Dwyer, Olivia Flanagan, Niamh Curtin and Eimear Traynor worked tirelessly in the first quarter, all managing to put their name on the scoresheet.

The second quarter saw some great defensive steals by Niamh Curtin and Martha Reidy. Their determination stopped Longford from scoring in this quarter. Huijsdens freethrows were on point, as was Traynors field shooting.

Hayley Reynolds led a strong defence in the third quarter, and managed to make a couple of clever steals. Traynor continued to shine in offence with her accurate shooting, as did Julie Ormsby in defence with some solid rebounding. Flanagan made a lovely layup, and Ava Fox worked hard to add her name to the scoresheet.

Longford made a comeback in the first few minutes of the final quater with some impressive baskets, but fiesty defence from Ellen Byrne and Lucy Kelly saw to it that this was short lived. A freethrow made by Ormsby and a lovely basket by Niamh Cowan saw Dunshaughlin win comfortably, 33 - 18.
Congratulations girls, keep up the hard work!​

Home and Away Star Visits DCC

JulieanneAndrew Morley a.k.a Spencer from ‘Home and Away’ paid a very special visit to the College on Friday to talk to TY students about his charity work for Future Projects, a campaign to end human trafficking.

His speech was inspiring and encouraging to all students to be self-confident, independent and above all to be kind to each other. He was a down to earth, honest and friendly guy who is a fantastic role model for our students. A massive thanks to Tara Scanlon (TY) for organising this hugely successful event.

Muireann“Kindness costs nothing, but it is priceless to those who need it”

The Student Leadership team members in Dunshaughlin Community College were absolutely delighted with the response to their 2014 December Food Collection for St Vincent de Paul.It was a fantastic achievement to have collected so much food. We extend a massive thank you to all staff and students, and their parents....and in particular to the Senior Prefects who delivered the food. You all gave so generously to this worthy cause, and it was much appreciated.

The hampers will be distributed by the St. Vincent de Paul, to local families in the few days before Christmas. Well done to all the students who gave of their time and energy and enthusiasm, to make the collection such a resounding success. A particular work of thanks to all the teachers, SNAs, in particular Delia Minnock, to Sheila, Imelda and Deirdre, and to Mrs Tugwell who all encouraged students to donate food items.

Many thanks also to Mr Foley and Ms Bennett for their ongoing support of this cause and for donating substantial funding to boost the donations. It is great to see that the spirit of generosity and of kindness is still very much alive, both in our school and in our community.

"You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving."
