In conjunction with Science Week 2018, Roscommon Community College invited local schools to visit the school farm and introduce the pupils to the new additions to the farm, our five Irish Angus calves. On Wednesday pupils from Gaelscoil de hIde and their teacher Múinteoir Laoise visited the farm and got the opportunity to meet with the farm manager Sean Mooney, students Seán Trudle and Keelan Gallagher and their science teacher Ms Joanne Shea. There was great excitement as the pupils got the opportunity to feed the animals and got a tour of the school farm. The visit ended with a competition where the pupils chose names for the animals. From now on the animals will no longer be known as the five Irish Angus calves, but instead Mary, Bluebell, Geraldine, Guailin Dubh and Beefy.

Beat the Blues aims to educate young people about mental health, why it is important and how to care for it. We were delighted to have Helen Emerson visit us at Roscommon Community College to deliver a programme to both our 5th Year and 6th Year students. The programme allowed them to explore principles for good mental health, how to identify the symptoms of anxiety, depression and bipolar. Students explored the importance of resilience and discussed how to seek and accept help. A very worthwhile session for all of our students.
