On one of the most beautiful days of the year, our 2nd year history students visited Strokestown House. Students of JC History must study the Famine in Ireland. Our students agreed that it was hugely beneficial to their knowledge and understanding of this period in our nation’s history to visit this unique attraction.

 

Our day began with a tour of Strokestown House. We followed that with a visit to the famine museum and after some lunch we explored the amazing gardens. Our students received huge praise from American and English tourists for their exemplary behaviour, the quality of their questioning and interest shown throughout the tour.

Ben Finnerty, 2nd year Business student from Roscommon Community College represented County Roscommon at the National Student Enterprise Awards Final that took place in Croke Park on Tuesday 3rd May. Ben was among the 200 enterprising students from a national total of 22,000 students who took part in the awards this year.  The enterprise competition is run by the Local Enterprise Offices around the country and Roscommon Community College is proud of its successful history to-date entering the competition.  It has given students in the school an opportunity to setup and run a mini-company in the safe and supporting environment of the school.  Well done Ben on your enterprise success.

On the 10th of May RCC was visited by Sky Sports representative Molly Dunne, who is a former Galway camogie player and All Star, as part of their initiative to get all students involved in extracurricular activities. RCC recently developed a soccer team for students who may not be involved in any other sporting activities. Wednesday was spent informing Molly what the students had learned throughout the experience, as well as partaking in some team bonding activities. The programme was a huge success, one which both the teachers, Mr. Timmons and Mr. Mc Hugh, and the students thoroughly enjoyed.
