We have had a busy term. Last week we had our World Book day which was wonderful. Staff and students got into the swing of it, we had visits from Mary Poppins, Sherlock Holmes even the Cookie Monster joined in the fun.
On Thursday 8th as part of International language week our students got to experience the Tango. It was a wonderful morning. Two students even demonstrated the dance. Well done Caoilainn and Joseph for getting up.
On Wednesday 14th our 3rd years did their DATS and our TYs and some 3rd years on Thursday 15th took part in PISA. Thank you to Ms. Fitzpatrick and Ms. Gough for organising this.
Our Lca girls and one of our TY girls also on Thursday went to DIT Bolton Street for Women in apprenticeships. They found out a lot of great information and really enjoyed the day. Thank you to Mrs. Lawless and Martina for attending the event with the ladies.
This Monday the school is closed for the St Patricks Day bank holiday.
We have a packed week next week. We shall be celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge and having a drug awareness week.
On Tuesday 20th of March our 1st years are going to UCD. On Wednesday some of our first years are taking part in the JCSP initiative Make a book. Thank you to our Jcsp Co-ordinator Ms. McNamara for organising this. We also have our 3rd year Parent teacher meeting that afternoon, our 3rd year parents will also be in before the meeting to discuss options for next year.
On Thursday 22nd our TY and some 2nd years will be going into Trinity College for their Suas graduation. They have a performance piece and we look forward to hearing how they get on when they return. If its anything like last years class they will have a wonderful time. Thank you to Ms. Carton for organising Suas.
Mr Kearns alongside the 5th years are having a Drug Awareness talk on Thursday 22nd, the 5th years shall be giving the talks to classes throughout the day. We know a lot of work went into it and we are sure it will be a very informative day.
Classes will finish up on Friday 23rd of March at 2.50 for the Easter Break. School will reopen on Monday April 9th. We would encourage our third year students to continue their exam study and work over the Easter break as it will only be 8 weeks until the Junior Certificate when we return.
We would like to thank all staff for their hard work this busy term. There have been numerous events big and small throughout this term, in the class room or as whole school. Events highlighted above are just a short sample of what went on this term and we want to acknowledge the hard work of all staff. Our final term will no doubt be just as productive.
We at Rosary College will like to wish Parents/Guardians,Staff and Students a very Happy St. Patricks Day and a wonderful and restful Easter Holidays.
