Ms Kearon informs us that Mr. Yamada, from the Japanese embassy, called to see the Transition Year class last Thursday, 17th November to speak to the pupils about Japanese culture. They learned a lot about this magical country from the informative presentation. Mr Yamada came bearing gifts from Japan which he gave out as prizes.
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.
