On Tuesday the 27th of February a group of very enthusiastic and brave 1st year French and German language students together with their teachers Ms. Farrell and Ms. Dennigan, headed North to Bundoran for an overnight trip to the Donegal Language Adventure Centre.

The 49 students were not perturbed by the bitterly cold weather. They took part in a variety of activities including high ropes, rock climbing and abseiling. The freezing temperatures did not dampen their spirits in the slightest and at minus 3 degrees they took to the Atlantic Ocean for a surf lesson like no other. They also had the opportunity to immerse themselves in high quality modern language classes with native French and German speakers.

 

We would like to thank the Donegal Language Adventure Centre for their hospitality and for creating life-long memories for our students.

Selina Lindsay of Youth Connect recently visited RCC to conduct a workshop on the area of Employment for young people with LCVP, 1st and 2nd year students.  Youth Connect is a service provided by The Irish Congress of Trade Unions.  Their aim is to raise awareness amongst students of their rights and responsibilities as they move towards the working world.

The workshops were interactive and thoroughly enjoyed by all students.  They were supplied with information regarding employment legislation for young workers, health and safety in the workplace and their rights and responsibilities. A very beneficial talk for all involved.

 

Thank you to Selina for very worthwhile and informative workshops.

As part of their studies at our school, some of our TYs and 1st year Geographers visited the magnificent Sliabh Ban to investigate alternative energy sources and in particular wind power. Our students gained invaluable practical knowledge as they could get up close to the recently installed turbines on the mountain. All were in awe of the how large these turbines are and how they generate electricity. An added bonus is the beautiful walks through the mountain and all students enjoyed getting out in the fresh air and exploring the beauty of Roscommon.
