As part of their Saint Vincent de Paul Befriending Project, Transition Year students have formed an Intergenerational choir with the elderly resident of Nazareth House care home. The purpose of this project is to engage in social outreach and to experience, first hand, how the lives of others can be enriched by volunteering one's time, gift and talent. On Monday 20th November 2017, students rehearsed Christmas carols with the residents of Nazareth House under the direction of Music teacher, Ms Mullen, and Chaplain, Mr Gueret.
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.
