Almost five years after the storm that caused dreadful flooding to our premises, Rosmini Community School is delighted to announce that An Bord Pleanála has finally approved the plan to demolish the existing structure and commence work on a marvellous new building.
Permission was first granted last August by Dublin City Council but this ruling was appealed to An Bord Pleanála in September. The decision to approve the new build is a boost, not only for the students and staff of Rosmini Community School, but for the entire Gracepark Road area as the Community and Adult Education Programme will, once again, be able to offer a range of night courses, as had been the case for many years. The new school will have the added benefit of a sports hall which was the missing link for so long.
It is to the great credit of all involved in the daily life of the school for the past five years that students have been so well catered for in our temporary accommodation. We thank, once again, DCU All Hallows for their support and we pay tribute to parents and pupils who have stood by us over the past few years.
Rosmini is delighted to be involved in the DCU UniTY programme. UniTY is a skills based programme specifically aimed at Transition Year students. It has been designed to increase student engagement in education and raise motivation and career aspirations and broaden students' world view. The curriculum is made up of Multimedia & Social Innovation, Smart Skills, Employability & Leadership and Student Empowerment. Other classes benefit through Maths quizzes, "Junior Discover" pathways to third level, DCU "Summer Scholars" programme, rugby and soccer blitzes.
