New School Building Granted Planning Permission
Rosmini Community School is delighted to announce that, in June 2018, our proposed new building has received planning permission from An Bord Pleanála. Granted initial permission by Dublin City Council in August 2017, this move by an Bord Pleanála, is wonderful news for all involved in the school. We have been providing inclusive education on this site since 1970 and we very much look forward to continuing this tradition. This image, provided by NMA Architects, shows the view from the exit on Gracepark Road. These are exciting times for all in Rosmini and this decision brings our new school one step closer.
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 recently retired 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.
Facilities in Rosmini

Our current temporary accommodation has a number of specialist rooms including science, art, music, ICT, woodwork & metalwork, VI resource and learning support. We are grateful to All Hallows College (now part of Dublin City University) who are sharing their wonderful campus with us. We look forward to our new building, complete with state of the art facilities, including sports hall, which in June 2018 was granted permission by An Bord Pleanála.
Congratulations to Ashleigh Fagan (harp) and Amy Campbell (uilleann pipes) for the wonderful performance they gave at the Corfheile na Scoileanna on March 5th where they performed Eibhin Gheal Cuin Ni Chearbh, Blind Mary, The Eagles Whistle and Snow on the Hill representing Rosmini Community School. Ashleigh and Amy would like to thank their teacher and organiser Ms Mc Gorman for all the support and for providing them once again with this great opportunity.
On Thursday 5th March, the Rosmini school choir took part in the annual Emmanuel concert in the Helix. This event involved 62 schools and 2,100 students. 3 of our choir members were successfully chosen to perform solo. This was a great achievement for the students and the school.
On Wednesday, 12th November, students from the 6th year music class, Ms Mc Swiney and David Larkin flew to Liverpool for the Beatles Experience. We visited the Beatles Story museum and the fab 4D experience on the docks. We did the magical mystery bus tour on the Thursday. On this tour we visited various places of interest to the Beatles like; where they grew up, schools they attended, the hall where they met and rehearsed, places they composed, strawberry fields, Eleanor Rigby's grave and Penny Lane.We also attended a gig in the Cavern Club on Wednesday evening.
We spent the first day going from the 'The Beatles story museum' which is on one end of Albert dock, to the 'Fab 4 experience' on the other side. This was a 3D story which had the Beatles top tunes playing throughout. We also visited the Titanic exhibition on that day as it was a recent edition to the docks and we all had an interest in this ship's tragic history.
