Get Ready for Rosmini Wellbeing Week 2018 - Coming Soon

We are excited to launch our programme of events for Rosmini Wellbeing Week 2018, which takes place from Monday 5th to Friday 9th November 2018. The theme of this week is You Gotta Nourish to Flourish. Students will participate in workshops on reducing anxiety, coping with stress, health & nutrition and smart goal setting. Each day of the week will focus on promoting awareness of a key component of student wellbeing, which is closely linked to the SPHE, CSPE and PE curriculums in the new Junior Cycle.

Webwise Lockers Programme

1st and 2nd year students participated in the Lockers programme from Webwise on both the 2nd and 4th October 2018. As part of our school’s commitment to promoting internet safety, students learned the law on the sharing of intimate content. They explored the consequences of sharing explicit images, victim blaming and the negative influences on our online actions. Students were equipped with the skills to refrain from sexting and the sharing of self-generated, illicit images.

Rosmini Friendship Day 2018

As an official welcome of our 1st year students to Rosmini, we celebrated Friendship Day on Tuesday 25th September 2018. Students participated in a series of group activities that were focused on developing their communication and teamwork skills. Joined by their peers from TY, 1st years learned how to be a more helpful, approachable and caring friend in school. After a lovely picnic on the grounds of All Hallows, a prayer service was held in the afternoon. Our new students were encouraged to use their gifts and talents to the very best of their abilities.

Overall Winners of DCU’s Intergenerational Solidarity Awards 2018

Congratulations to our Transition Year students who were the Overall Winners of Dublin City University’s Intergenerational Solidarity Awards 2018. They received this award in recognition of the All Ages Aloud choir that was formed with the residents of Nazareth House. Students rehearsed with the residents for a Christmas Carol Service that was held in Nazareth House back in December. Christine O’ Kelly, Age Friendly University Network Coordinator for DCU, commended students, on the power of the their project to bring people of all ages together in a spirit of friendship through music.

Ember Graduation 2018

Our Ember Team were invited to Clonliffe College today for a special graduation celebration. Father Peter McVerry spoke to students about his work with the homeless. He encouraged the young people present to treat those most vulnerable in society with compassion & dignity. Our team members reflected on their journey over the past year in a beautiful liturgy. Rosmini joined forces with Loreto Foxrock for a lip sync performance of the Cha-Cha Slide. Congratulations to our Ember Team for completing a wonderful year of service to others in our school.

Another Win for Transition Years

Chaplain, Mr Gueret has informed us that Rosmini Rosmini Community School has been chosen for an award for the Intergenerational Solidarity Prize in recognition of our Choir Project with the residents of Nazareth House. What a fantastic recognition of our students' community outreach to the elderly citizens of our society. We are all so very proud of their achievement.

The award will be presented on Friday, May 18th at a small ceremony.

A Creative Approach to Problem Solving

In this week’s First Aid for the Mind club, students were invited to work together to create a person using only sellotape & paper. Teams were encouraged to use their creative skills to help make a person that is able to stand without any support. After this activity, we looked at how being creative & using our imagination can help us to problem solve. We learned that by feeling confident, problems are not as challenging to overcome.
