School Breakfast

We are delighted to announce availabliity of breakfast in school on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 8.30.  Conscious of the early start for many students we have organised through Food Cloud for breakfast two mornings per week.

The initiative is a practical expression of our support of student ‘Wellbeing’, and to gague by student responses for the last two mornings, it is going down a treat!!

Tea, toast and/or a piece of fruit will, hopefully, energise us even more for the day ahead.

A huge thank you to members of Staff and Students who have volunteered to help out.  Thanks too to Food Cloud for providing the foodstuffs.

Drumshanbo V.S PLC courses.
Ms Reynolds invited .Ms Heduan coordinator of the courses to speak to Fifth year and TY students.

Drumshanbo Vocational School has a long tradition of offering Post Leaving Certificate Courses to learners:  The courses are full-time and last for one to two years. PLC courses offer a mixture of practical work, academic work and work experience. They are designed as a step towards skilled employment and, as such, they are closely linked to industry and its needs. The Post Leaving Certificate courses in DVS adopt an integrated approach, focusing on technical knowledge, core skills and work experience.Some students use points acquired from PLC courses as an entry to college.  Other learners have chosen to defer a college course  , for whatever reason , while obtaining valuable vocational skills on our PLC courses.  Research conducted by third level Institute of Technologies has shown that students who have previously completed a Post Leaving Certificate course prior to commencement of college have higher retention levels. The college is currently offering four PLC courses

  1. Business IT  QQI Level 5
  2. Advanced Business IT QQI Level 6 
  3. Traditional Irish Music  QQI Level 5 – 5M2011
  4. Sound Production QQI Level 5 5M2149
