Congratulations to RCC students Siafra Finneran (2nd year) and Mairéad Lohan (1st year) who were members of the Roscommon U14 camogie team who were successful in winning an All-Ireland on Saturday September 8th. The team participated in a national camogie blitz in Dublin where they topped their group and then went on to beat Louth in the final. The girls also led out the intermediate All-Ireland Camogie finalists in Croke Park on Sunday last. Well done to the girls on a great achievement.

As the new school year starts, three of our fifth year students are looking forward to the upcoming National Ploughing Championships at the end of September. Keelan Gallagher, Seán Trundle and John Cunniffe were picked as one of the six final teams who will receive five Certified Irish Angus calves at the Ploughing. The students will spend three days at the Ploughing Championships promoting Certified Irish Angus Beef at the Angus stand. On the final day they will be presented with their calves and they are eagerly looking forward to rearing them on the school farm. The boys have been busy with their project attending various agricultural shows during the summer holidays and will visit Strokestown Agricultural Show this coming weekend. Follow the boys journey at RCC Irish Angus Song on YouTube, and on Facebook and Instagram @ Certified Irish Angus S.O.S, (Save Our Sucklers).

Roscommon Community College was delighted to welcome Kieran Mulvihill from ‘Amazing Brains’ Study Skills Programme on Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th of September. Amazing Brains specialise in helping students to optimise their study time and ensure productive studying takes place. The workshop was interactive with innovative resources used to help students learn how their brain works, how they can develop a success mindset and how to revise successfully, ultimately leading to success in examinations.  Kieran facilitated three workshops. The ‘Blast Off’ Programme, offered to 1st year students, is designed to enable students to develop the mindset and study habits to succeed at school. The ‘Drive for Success’ Programme, taken by 3rd year students is designed to give a foundation to students to achieve in their first state examination. The merits of active learning, the importance of perseverance and the role of a ‘can do’ attitude were discussed alongside study techniques and strategies. The ‘5 Steps to Exam Success’ takes on a holistic approach to exam preparation from creating the right mindset to optimising energy levels to study techniques. The programme was thoroughly enjoyable and students who engaged in the programme will reap the rewards.

On Tuesday and Wednesday last our TY students participated in outdoor pursuit activities at Petersburg Adventure Centre, Galway. This proved an excellent way to start off the year to form friendships, encourage teamwork and cooperation. Activities included stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, orienteering, ab-sailing, an obstacle course and gorge walking. It was a busy couple of days for our students but nonetheless a memorable experience. Thanks to Ms Fleming, Ms Dennigan, Mr Killoran and Mr Patterson for accompanying them.
