THANKS! - David Meade Fund-Raising Night

The pupils and Staff of Donard School would like to thank Mr David Meade for a very entertaining (and perplexing!) fund-raising night in the Parish Centre, Banbridge. We very much appreciate his support for our School. Staff in School are still trying to work out the number grid! Final total raised to follow.

Inter-Schools Formal

The Inter-Schools Formal is one of the most anticipated events in the Senior School Calendar. Our pupils really look forward to getting all 'glammed up' and putting on their finery. I'm sure you will agree that they all looked sensational! Even though our mode of transport did not befit our glamorous appearance, we were all very glad to sit down and rest our weary feet at the end of a night of socialising and dancing. Thank you to all the fabulous Staff who attended to make sure that our pupils had a safe and wonderful evening. Thank you also to Rathore School, Newry for organising such an enjoyable evening.
