Fáilte & Welcome
Céad Míle Fáilte to all our readers, whether parent, student, teacher, past student or someone interested to find out about our fine College.
The under 16 Gaelic football panel began 2018 with a very convincing win against Mercy College, Coolock. The match was played in Parnell's GAA club in very difficult weather conditions. Our students put in a superb football display with an exceptional defensive performance. Notable mentions to Jenny Gleeson (3.3) and our fantastic captain Fiona Isdell (4.4). Pictured also is Dublin senior footballer Cormac Costello who was extremely impressed with our display.
Dominican College is undertaking a Self-Evaluation of Teaching & Learning in our school. To help us in that evaluation, we would be very grateful for both student and parent views and opinions on the matters in the questionnaire below. It should take 10 minutes to complete. Please note that you are completing the questionnaire anonymously. We thank you for your time in helping us with our School Self Evaluation.

Transition Year students from classes 4.2 and 4.3 created a unique dictionary representing the Dublin slang we use everyday. This project took place over the last month, with students coming up with the words and an exact definition from the Oxford English dictionary for each word. And the results were hilarious. I would like to express my deepest appreciation to both 4.2 and 4.3. who worked so hard to make this project a reality. Their tasks ranged from designing the cover to being a book editor and every student had an active role to play. And so, the finished book represents the hysterical insights of these students. It should be noted that none of this would have been possible without the hard work and dedication to the task by each individual student in both class groups.
Well done girls! (Mr. S. Costello)
A lot of hard work was put in by both classes and especially our teacher, Mr. Costello. We would like to thank the Transition Year team for allowing us to take part in such a massive project, it really added to our transition year experience!!! (Karina Rotaru)
As you aware, the school reopens after the Christmas holidays at 8:40am on Monday January 8th. We hope that you had a wonderful couple of weeks and you are fit and ready for the next term!!
We would like to remind parents that children who have flu-like symptoms should remain at home from school when schools reopen next week as per advise from tthe HSE and the country’s three paediatric hospitals.
Ina joint statement on Thursday the country’s three children’s hospitals - Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin; Temple Street Children’s University Hospital and the National Children’s Hospital in Tallaghtsaid: “Next week schools, crèches and other childcare facilities will reopen and people will be back to work and our advice is any child who gets flu like symptoms should stay at home, rest, drink plenty of fluids and parents use over-the-counter remedies like paracetamol to ease flu symptoms. If parents are worried about their child’s breathing or fluid intake or if any young child or infant is in one of the high-risk groups and develops flu like symptoms they should contact their GP.”
