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.

On Tuesday 16th January 2018, 3rd and 6th year students participated in Exam Self-Care Workshops. Students were introduced to mindfulness practice as a tool for coping with the increased levels of stress, anxiety and pressure that may experienced during the mock exam period. They were invited to take part in practical exercises to equip them with the skills that are needed to practice self-care in the weeks ahead. Students were led on a Calming Anxiety Guided Meditation to help them release any tension that they may be feeling ahead of the their exams.
Congratulations to class 3P who ran a very successful campaign to raise money and awareness for Inner City Helping Homeless. Mr Darbey’s CSPE class raised €210 and also acquired a very generous donation of winter woolies from Penney’s.
Alan Lyne and Enya Harrison from Maynooth University Israel Society met with students from Rosmini Community School on Wednesday 8th November 2017. 1st and 3rd year students were invited to explore the different religions and communities that exist in Israel. They learned about traditional kosher foods that are consumed at the dinner table by Israelis. Alan and Enya taught a few words of greeting in Hebrew, the official language of Israel. Students were informed of different genres of music that are popular in this middle eastern country.
Congratulations to all our Junior Certificate students who received their results yesterday. The happy, smiling faces tell the story of their success (or is that just because they were allowed home a little earlier than usual!). Either way, start working NOW for Leaving Certificate, guys and girls. Start early, lessen the stress!
