In September a group of fifth year students were selected to go to Avoca Manor. There they took part in training for a religious leadership programme called Ember. This training involved lots of team building and leadership tasks. Lorena Cimpean, Jamie Hopkins, Megan Heeney-Holmes, Eoin Maxwell, Kelly Supple, and Roisín O’Sullivan Doyle are all part of the Ember team. As part of their role they work in an ongoing basis with the First year group. The Ember team accompany and support them on their journey through first year.
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.
