Roscommon Community College Senior Football team got off to a great start in the Connacht GAA Post Primary Championship Competition against Elphin Community College on Wednesday, 3rd October.  RCC were in control from the very start when Kyle Kelly and Michael Staunton both scored goals inside the first ten minutes. This opened up a significant lead which ensured that RCC never came close to losing. RCC brought on substitutes at half time, all of whom impressed and will be pushing for starting places for the next game. The win leaves RCC on top of the table after the first round of games with a big scoring advantage on the other teams within the group. The next round is against Abbey Community College, Boyle in two weeks’ time. Good luck to the panel of players in the rest of the competition.

The 26th of September was European Day of Languages and Roscommon Community College marked the occasion with a table quiz for our first year language students. Competition was fierce, as was the enjoyment had by all. Many thanks to the Modern Foreign Language teachers for organising this.  

 Also, as a part of the European Day of Languages, Transition Year students conducted a survey on a sample of 300 students in an effort to discover the wide range of languages spoken in Roscommon Community College. Among the most widely spoken languages were English, Irish, German and French. Other languages spoken in Roscommon Community College include Portuguese, Slovakian, Malay, Punjab, Polish, Latvian and Indian among many others.

The Senior Roscommon Community College ladies got their school league campaign off to a great start when they secured a well-earned win over Elphin Community College on Monday, 24th September. An away venue did not deter the girls and their positive attitude to begin the year well and get the win. With a combination of students from different year groups and many of these girls coming from various local clubs it made for a strong team for Roscommon Community College. 

While it took the girls a few minutes to settle into the game, Tia Croinin found the target with a good point and the RCC girls never looked back after. Some fantastic individual skill was displayed from all forwards with scores coming from Rachel Tarmey, Aoife Campbell, Ellie Lohan and Maebh Hickey. RCC’s backs also illustrated great determination and fight and made it very difficult for the young Elphin side to clock up some points. A penalty awarded to the Elphin side in the second half prompted a comeback, however, the RCC girls only raised their game in response and showed a dramatic improvement in supporting each other resulting in some fine scores, Siafra Finneran and Caitlin Connolly adding to the scoring forwards.  A great overall team performance from the Roscommon girls ending with a comprehensive win of 4-11 to 1-1. Next up is a home game where they face Coláiste Chiaráin, Summerhill.

 

RCC Team: Riesse Donlon, Ciara Kenny, Ellie Lohan, Tara Naughton, Zara Grehan, Rachael Tarmey, Tia Cronin, Siobhan Tracey, Aoife Campbell, Aisling Tracey, Rose-Michaela Cunniffe, Caitlin Connolly, Julia Garvey, Ellen Hynes, Rachael Ward, Chloe Fallon, Siafra Finneran, Katie Cronin, Shannon Carter, Kirsten Cronin, Carragh Kennedy, Maebh Hickey and Katie Nugent.

Our U14 Ladies Football team had their first outing last week where they faced Castlerea Community School.

Castlerea started the stronger side leading by two goals after the first five minutes. However, our girls soon settled into the game scoring three fantastic goals before half time. The support, play and teamwork displayed in scoring these goals was a pleasure to watch and highlighted the potential that this group of players have. Castlerea showed their experience in the second half finishing off the game as the stronger side. However, the work rate, determination and teamwork shown by this group of girls displays the bright future that is ahead for ladies football in the school.

A special mention must be given to our first year girls who made their football debut for Roscommon Community College. There was a total of 17 first year girls who all received game time for RCC for the very first time. All players made a big impact on the field and it is great to see their talent enhancing our teams here at Roscommon Community College. The future is bright.

Well done to all players and the best of luck in their next game which will be against Coláiste Chiaráin Summerhill.

On Friday, 21st September, a number of students from Roscommon Community College attended a Careers Fair in The Quad Youth Centre in Roscommon Town. The fair was hosted by Tusla Child & Family Agency as part of Public Awareness Week, Monday 17th to Friday 21st of September. This fair specifically focused on the area of Social Work/Social Work Caring and all of the associated disciplines involved.

Students from TY, 5th year and 6th year who expressed interested in this career area were fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend this insightful careers fair. During the fair, our students had the opportunity to speak with and ask questions to experienced social workers and therefore, gain in-depth insight as to what a social work career can involve. This was an enjoyable and beneficial experience for all students who attended.
