President Higgins visits Rosmini
President Higgin's visit to Rosmini was a truly memorable experience for all on campus. Here the president is photographed with principal, Ms Cherry, former deputy principal, Ms Bourke and the Rosmini Student Council organised by Ms Dunphy. During his visit the president said "this is not just a school it is also a real community, a place that doesn't simply value a pupil by how well they do at their lessons but also by how hard they work, by how well they treat each other and of course by how much use they make of all of the individual talents they have been given

We look forward to our new building scheduled to open in 2018 complete with state of the art facilities including sports hall.
Celebrating the Arts
In Rosmini, the Arts are an important part of our school year. The image shows 6th Year student, Shaun Garry, performing at the DCU Achievement Awards in November 2017. Also on stage was 5th Year, Luke Martin. The drama team are busy rehearsing the musical, Grease. The show will take place early 2018. In recent years, the "Rosmini's Got Talent" show was a highlight of the school calendar as was the annual music class trip to the Beatles capital, Liverpool.
