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.

Ember Training in Ovoca Manor

This year’s Ember Team have been busy preparing for their role as student leaders in the school community. Through group activities and reflective work, our team members have developed the skills of communication and co-operation. They have also learned how to plan, act and reflect on events that will be organised for students in Rosmini. Our students learned how they can energise and set a positive example for their fellow team members out on the various obstacle courses in Ovoca Manor. Wishing our team the very best of luck in the year ahead.

In a morning liturgy, our team were blessed with a holy oil to give them strength to serve as mentors to other students in the months ahead.

Saint Vincent de Paul Food Appeal

The Ember Team have been busy organising this year's SVP Food Appeal. They spoke to every class group about how they can help people in need in their local community by donating non-perishable festive food items to help families and individuals enjoy an extra-special Christmas meal. Posters were displayed around the school promoting the Appeal. The Ember team collected food items that were placed in boxes in designated classrooms in the school over the past three weeks. Local SVP volunteer James Byrne offered thanks to all the students of Rosmini for donating food items.
