Well done to our German debating team of Gabrielle Papuga, Sophia Ivanenko, Thomas Fallon and Oisin Fallon who took on Coláiste Báile Chláir last Friday in the Siemens Post-Primary Schools German Debating Competition, run by the Goethe Institute. One of only 32 teams in the competition, they argued their points very well and were unlucky not to progress to the next round. Wir wünschen Coláiste Báile Chláir viel Glück in der nächste Runde.




Roscommon Community College Open Day is on Saturday 18th November from 10am - 2pm. Principals Address at 12pm.

It was an early start last Saturday morning, October 14th, for some members of the school choir who performed at the launch of the Christmas Shoebox Appeal in Hannon’s Hotel. The 20-strong group had been rehearsing every morning at 8.30 before school began, for the past number of weeks, in preparation for this event. It was ‘lights, camera, action” as their rendition of ‘Gaudete’ went out live on TV3’s Saturday AM Show, who were doing an outside broadcast of this event. In addition to this song, the choir also performed ‘Shenandoah’ and ‘Goodnight Sweetheart’ and all pieces went down very favourably with the large crowd who were in attendance at this event. A huge word of thanks to all the choir members, Erik Horvath on drum and to Ms. Smyth and Ms. Concar who helped the students to prepare for this performance.

Michael Egan (Leaving Cert), former chairperson of the Green Flag Committee pictured with the incoming chairperson, Ben Moran (Transition Year). The school would like to take this opportunity to thank Michael Egan for his huge effort in leading the school to achieving our Seventh Green Flag for Global Citizenship with an Emphasis on Energy. We would also like to take this opportunity to wish Ben Moran every success in his new role as chairperson, as we work towards achieving our Eight Green Flag for Global Citizenship with an emphasis on Marine Health.

Rainfall Workshops, Green Flag and BT Young Scientist.


Michael Egan (Leaving Certificate) has conducted various workshops on rainfall with the students of RCC. This has been effective in creating awareness of Climate Change and Global Warming among the school community. Seán Mooney (farm technician) and the school farm have been vital in our project work in Agricultural Science, Biology and Environmental Studies throughout the years. Most recently, our Transition students, Lauryn Flaherty and Farrah Rahmat have carried out research into the links between local rainfall and how it compares with global standards. Roscommon Community Rainfall Records have been documented as early as the 1940’s. The school would like to extend a huge thank you to Seán Mooney who has been responsible for the upkeep of these records since the 1970’s.
