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.
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.
