Well done to Fifth Year pupil Emma Lalwani who was this year’s lucky recipient of a Galway Roscommon ETB scholarship to the Euro Languages summer course in German. Emma was selected from a large pool of potential candidates and attended the prestigious language course for three weeks in July. While in attendance, Emma enhanced her skills in the areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking in German. Language learning on the course was not just confined to the classroom, but involved a variety of cultural, sporting and other recreational activities, all the while maintaining total immersion in the target language. rsz emma lalwani euro languages scholarship

I want to wish all our students the very best of luck in our upcoming musical Hairspray. I know Ms. Smyth and Ms. Nestor, the Parents Association, all the cast and the background crew have been working tirelessly over the last three months to perfect this story of racial integration and challenge! The show will be staged over 4 days in the Arts Centre in Roscommon Town starting from September 23rd 2015. I know you will enjoy the show and look forward to seeing you all there.
