It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of our school magazine, Eolas 2019. Our TY Printing and Publishing team have been working hard this year to produce a magazine that highlights the talents and achievements of our students and they have succeeded in doing so and much more. It is an exciting and interesting documentation and celebration of life in RCC: our experiences, our endeavours and our creativity.

Eolas 2019 will be launched on Tuesday, 14th May at the Transition Year Graduation Ceremony being held in The Abbey Hotel and will be available for purchase on the night and thereafter in Roscommon Community College. 

Congratulations is extended to all of the students involved in its creation, a commendable achievement. We would like to extend our thanks to all students who submitted articles, poems and stories based on a wide variety of topics and interests and to all staff at RCC who facilitated and encouraged its production. Finally, its production would not have been possible without the support of local businesses and families in sponsoring its creation and for that we are very grateful.

 

We look forward to sharing it with you!

Well done to Jorja Rowe, 1st year, who was awarded first place in The Strokestown Poetry School’s Competition last weekend. Her poem is entitled ‘There is no such Thing as Perfect’. 

Jorja was in attendance with other students from the various secondary schools from around the county and came away with first prize. Jorja represented herself and her school exceptionally well and we are very proud of her creative work.

It was a lovely evening at the award ceremony in The Percy French Hotel as part of the International Poetry Festival.

 

Please take pleasure in reading Jorja’s winning poem: 

There is No Such Thing as Perfect

There is no such thing

as perfect.

Where did the word come from?

The perfect house, the perfect job

The perfect life.

 

We are all human, living in

a human world. Most are nice,

Sincere, loving, even kind.

But perfect causes such

Unhappiness.

 

Perfect is unreal, untouchable.

Accept Good, Well Done and

Wonderful. Do your best,

Be your best.

 

There is no such thing

as perfect.

Be happy. Not perfect.

Congratulations to Jorja Rowe 1st year on successfully scooping first place at The Strokestown Poetry School's Competition
