Garda Padraig O’Gara visited our TY students on Thursday last to deliver a talk on Road Safety. Students experienced a very informative morning, filled with facts and figures in relation to road safety and road accidents. Some of the main causes of road accidents were outlined to students. Their responsibilities as young drivers were also highlighted. Interestingly, students were informed that quite a large proportion of road fatalities in Ireland are related to fatigue. Students were informed of precautions needed to ensure that fatigue is not a factor that influences driving performance. Overall, the talk proved very beneficial for our TY students.

We would like to wish all of our third year students the very best of luck in their Junior Cycle English Assessment Task taking place this week. This task accounts for 10% of their grade in their Junior Cycle Examination. We hope that all of the hard work and preparation on behalf of our students is rewarded.

Roscommon Community College’s Equestrian Club members have spent eleven weeks of this term taking lessons and improving their equestrian skills in Mountcashel Equestrian Cente, Roscommon. During this period students have participated in show jumping competitions competing against other schools in the local area at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.  The series of competitions over this period has allowed each team of participants to accumulate points which will determine the overall winners in the final competition in January.

 

Many thanks are extended to Roscommon Equestrian Centre for providing this opportunity for our students and for the support of our student’s parents and guardians in dedicating their time to the transport of students to the weekly training sessions and competitions. We are looking forward the finale of this ongoing competition which will be held in the New Year. The very best of luck to all students involved.

Roscommon Community College held their annual Christmas Carol Service in the Abbey Hotel on Wednesday last. The Christmas Carol Service provided a festive opening to the Christmas period in RCC with outstanding performances all round. The school would like to extend sincere gratitude to Ms Smyth, Ms Concar and Ms Wallace for their creativity, dedication and time in organising and coordinating such a wonderful event. We would also like to express our great sense of pride in watching our talented soloists, musicians and choir members perform so brilliantly on the night. The hours of after school preparation from both students and teachers alike left all in attendance enthused and filled with that Christmas spirit.

Congratulations to T.Y students Sean Trundle, Keelan Gallagher and John Cunniffe, along with their science teacher Ms Shea and agriculture science teacher Ms Concar, on progressing to the next stage of the Irish Angus Beef Schools’ Competition. The Certified Irish Angus Beef Schools Competition, run by the Irish Angus Producer Group, along with its processor partners, ABP Ireland and Kepak Group, aims to encourage second level students to apply the knowledge they learn in the classroom to a real life setting and gain an understanding about the care and attention that is required to produce and market the highest quality beef for consumers.

Each year, five school groups are chosen to receive five Irish Angus Cross calves. As part of their Leaving Certificate Agricultural Science project the students are required to set milestones through the lifetime of the animals, rear them through to slaughter and visit processing and retail facilities to understand how the food chain works.

 

Keelan, John and Séan were successful in progressing to the next round due to the high standard of their five-minute video which was submitted by the group explaining the involvement the school holds in Agricultural Science, together with outlining their plan to promote Angus beef in their community.  The next stage of the competition involves the boys completing a 20- minute interview with the sponsors of the competition in Mullingar on the 18th of January. We wish them the very best of luck.
