Cuireadh tús iontach le Seachtain na Gaeilge i gColáiste Pobail Ros Comáin.  Ar an Aoine, d’eagraigh an Coiste Gaelbhratach tráth na gceist don chéad, dara agus cúigiú bliain.  Bhí Seán Mac Aodhagháin, an Cathaoirleach, ag léamh amach na ceisteanna agus bhí na daltaí eile ar an gcoiste ag cabhrú agus ag ceartú.  Bhuaigh na buaiteoirí uibheacha Cásca agus bhain gach duine an-sult as.  An tseachtain seo chugainn, beidh an Idirbhliain ag dul ar thuras chun na Gaeltachta agus beidh duaiseanna do Chainteoir na Seachtaine agus Comórtas na bPóstaer á bhronnadh freisin.

On Monday 12th March Leaving Certificate LCVP and Home Economics students visited Molloy's bakery in Roscommon town, accompanied by their teachers Ms. Carolan and Ms. Carroll. Declan Molloy welcomed the group and showed us the bakery before giving us a presentation. He outlined for LCVP and Home Economics students how his business has changed and progressed from when he first started out in business. He informed us of the many roles involved in his business, besides baking! These range from Quality Assurance, Marketing, enforcing Origin Green and decorating cakes to working in transporting the goods produced. This trip linked in with many aspects of the Leaving Certificate course as students got to see how the bakery is run and learned about Health and Safety legislation governing food production businesses, HACCP systems in place,  special diets catered for, raising agents used in products, labelling of goods and marketing techniques they use. Thanks very much to Declan Molloy for taking the time out of his busy schedule to meet us and for his very informative and interesting talk and for the free samples of some delicious baked products.

Thursday the 8th of March saw a large crowd of students, parents and members of the public attend the launch of this years Roscommon Community College Art Exhibition in Áras an Chontae. Councillor Orla Leydon officially opened the exhibition followed by speeches from Dr Lohan and Art Teacher Ms Joyce. The Exhibition comprises of a collection work by 1st, 2nd and Transition Year Students inspired by Ireland’s greatest artist treasure, The Book Of Kells. Dr. Chambers invested in a professional print press for the Art Room this year and as a result the students have completed a series of prints using the Dry Point etching technique. Elizabeth Eglite hand bound the experimental prints left over into a beautiful book. Students stained intaglio paper to recreate the effects of Velum used in the Book of Kells pages. The other second year class of students created a series of Lino Prints in various colours. First years produced a variety of relief ceramic tiles, glazed in a variety of colours. Transition years made a series of prints, ceramic plates and pots. There were four student prizes on the night, Leo Dixon for the excellent invitation/poster drawing. Kirstin Cronin for best Lino Print, Nurin Sofea Rahmat for best etching and Hannah Kerr for best ceramic tile.

The exhibition continues until May 2018 and is well worth a visit have you not seen it already.
