Our Transition Year students competed in Roscommon County Council Anti- Litter Cinema Campaign. They produced, with assistance from SkyRocket Media, a fantastic cinema advertisement showing the damage and effects that littering can have in our community. The angle we focused on was the anti-social effects of littering as we felt that this is an important aspect of littering that is often not highlighted.  We wanted to make it clear to our audience how socially unacceptable littering is. Our tagline was ‘Bin your Litter, Not your Friends’. The advertisement captured a group of friends who gather in the park. One of the group litters and as he walks and litters he loses a member of his group EVENTUALLY ENDING UP ending up with no friends. His group then show him the error of his ways and, with a new perspective. He learns how unacceptable littering is. Our group accepted the award of ‘Best Screenplay’ at the awards ceremony in C&L Plex on the 8th of May which was richly deserved. This campaign really brought a new awareness to our Transition Year students of the effects and damage littering can have. It made us all more aware of littering blackspots and we took part in many clean up days throughout the year in the surrounding areas. This campaign was a very beneficial part of our Transition Year.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of our school magazine, Eolas 2019. Our TY Printing and Publishing team have been working hard this year to produce a magazine that highlights the talents and achievements of our students and they have succeeded in doing so and much more. It is an exciting and interesting documentation and celebration of life in RCC: our experiences, our endeavours and our creativity.

Eolas 2019 will be launched on Tuesday, 14th May at the Transition Year Graduation Ceremony being held in The Abbey Hotel and will be available for purchase on the night and thereafter in Roscommon Community College. 

Congratulations is extended to all of the students involved in its creation, a commendable achievement. We would like to extend our thanks to all students who submitted articles, poems and stories based on a wide variety of topics and interests and to all staff at RCC who facilitated and encouraged its production. Finally, its production would not have been possible without the support of local businesses and families in sponsoring its creation and for that we are very grateful.

 

We look forward to sharing it with you!
