Awards Night 2018

Awards Evening Goes Ahead Despite Events of Last Weekend
Thank you so much to our wonderful supporters for making our 8th annual Awards Night an extra special one this year.
Pelican Promotions provided us with 150 chairs to allow us to go ahead – and are also providing chairs again next Tuesday for the Leaving Cert Grad Mass. Thanks to Mandy and Shane for their generosity.
Paula Harrison, Mum to Orla and Rachel worked her magic to source 200 chairs from the Clans and Gary O Donoghue, Dad to the two football stars Hollie and Kellie both delivered and returned them in double quick time.
Yet another local club gave us the rest of the chairs we needed. Aidan Mc Ardle, Chairman of Roche Emmets offered us another 200, kindly delivered and collected by Martin Lavery, Dad to Una and Dearbhla, who helped with the loading and unloading!
Blooms donated the stunning floral displays which lifted the spirits of all who arrived that evening.
Des O Loughlin provided the audio visual equipment to bring Ms Mc Grath’s wonderful PowerPoint to life.
Dalton and Dash.ie generously sponsored a Chrome Book for our worthy Ethos winner Jolene.
Trend provided us with beautiful trophies and medals and our Sr Clare Memorial Award and jewellery for the Ethos nominees were Newbridge Silverware.
Ms Dolan thanked everyone for their support in a difficult week and reassured all that we will be back up and running in August in our own building again. She acknowledged the wonderful assistance given to us by DkIT and lots of other schools around town.
Interval acts for the evening were provided by Sixth Year Music students and Senior Council Members. Jolene Murtagh and Eimear Fealy performed a beautifully harmonised version of ‘For Good’ from the hit West End musical ‘Wicked’ Head girl Isobel O Reilly performed a poignantly appropriate song called ‘Rise Up’ which had the audience spellbound. Principal Michelle Dolan praised Isobel for her unceasing efforts all year for the students and the school.

 

Below are the results for the evening.

DkIT Welcomes St Louis Secondary School

DkIT and St Louis have jointly issued the following statement this afternoon.

 

DkIT welcomes St. Louis Secondary School as all operations are transferred to the campus location following the damage to the school in the early hours of Saturday morning.

 

The staff of DkIT and St. Louis have worked closely together to effectively transfer the school operations for the next few weeks to the DkIT Campus. Dr Michael Mulvey, President of DkIT commented that:

 

“We are delighted to welcome the staff and students of St. Louis Secondary School to our campus and to be in a position to provide a safe learning environment for all of St. Louis activities. We are working closely together to ensure that student learning is uninterrupted.”

 

Michelle Dolan, Acting Principal stated that:

 

“The facilities provided by DkIT allow us to continue to provide all of our normal activities. It is envisaged that the Junior and Leaving Certificate students will locate to the DkIT campus and run as normal on Tuesday 15th May with all other classes resuming on Wednesday 16th May. Following intense planning on all sides, the Institute campus is fully prepared and ready”.

 

Michelle Dolan, Acting Principal further stated that:

 

“The entire school will relocate for the next few weeks to DkIT and for the duration of the State Exams. Providing excellent teaching and learning to our students is our priority as well as providing a safe and calm learning environment for all, including exam candidates while they continue to prepare for state exams. We have had reassurance from the State Exams Commission that they have a procedure in place to deal fairly with the exam candidates who have lost project work in the recent fire and will work closely with the school this week”.

 

An Annual Awards night, planned for Thursday 17th, will go ahead in the school Gym as this area is safe. The transport section of the Department of Education and Skills has engaged with the school authorities and support is being provided from Bus Eireann who will carry any student who needs transportation to the DkIT campus from St. Louis School Fatima gate. Discussions are ongoing with the Department of Education and Skills to begin planning to repair the school and replace lost rooms and we look forward to returning to our home base in St. Louis by August”.

Statement regarding fire at St Louis, May 12th 2018

Statement from Michelle Dolan, Acting Principal.

 

A fire broke out in St Louis Secondary School at approximately 3:00am this morning. The Fire Service arrived promptly and managed to stop the fire from spreading into the main buildings of the school. We have lost two rooms today, the Study Hall and the Technology Room.

The Board of Management and I wish to thank the Dundalk and Ardee Fire Services under Fire Officer Paul Kelly who worked tirelessly all night to ensure that both the main building and Dealga were saved. We are indebted to them and truly grateful for all their efforts.

We also wish to acknowledge the outpouring of support from so many of our friends in other local education establishments in this time of difficulty, with offers of support and assistance. Thank you for your care.

Gardaí are investigating the possible cause of the fire and we await their report on this.

I would like to reassure parents that every staff member is on hand to help our students prepare for both our internal summer assessments, and the State Exams in June. We will endeavour to minimise the disruption for your daughters.

We will be relying on the assistance of the whole school community to help us to get back to teaching and learning as quickly as possible.

Thank you to all for your continued support. Please allow us the time to formulate our plans and we will be in touch as soon as we can.

Michelle Dolan.
