The Leaving Certificate class of 2022 had their graduation ceremony at the Abbey Hotel on Tuesday the 17th of May. This was a lovely and enjoyable occasion for all, and one that was well appreciated, considering the cancelation from previous years in relation to Covid-19. The ballroom was laid out beautifully, facilitating graduates, teachers and family members who travelled to the ceremony. The night was accompanied by the RCC school choir who sang beautifully along with their teachers Ms Doyle, Ms Smyth and Mr Arnold. Some captivating speeches put together by Deputy principal Ms Lohan along with sixth year head of year Mr O’ Ceallaigh showed just how hard our students have worked, how far they have come, and most importantly, how much they will be missed in Roscommon Community College. Ms Lohan and Mr O’ Ceallaigh have been in RCC with these students since day one in September 2016, building strong relationships with their proud leaving cert students. After students received their certificates, guests were inspired by the wholesome speeches from sixth year head boy Noah Fallon, and sixth year head girl Elizabeth Eglite. This was followed by a splendid presentation put together by sixth year student Rute Marques which no doubt brought back many great memories to students, parents, teachers and guests on the night. Thank you to our music teachers for their work with the school choir. Many thanks also to Ms Lohan, Mr O’Ceallaigh and all members of staff and students at RCC for assisting with this successful night. Furthermore, thank you to the staff at the Abbey Hotel for all their assistance and providing us with their beautiful ballroom for the night. Congratulations to all our graduates of 2022 who without them would not have made this celebrated night possible. We wish you the best of luck in your exams and for the future, you are always welcome at Roscommon Community College.

Well known former Clare hurler, intercountry manager and now TV personality, Davy Fitzgearld paid a visit to our school last Friday. Our school was very lucky to win the ‘win a training session with Davy Fitzgearld’ competition run by Londis. There was tremendous excitement amongst our students and staff in anticipation of Davy’s visit. 30 lucky students were chosen at random. For a full 90 minutes Davy put our students through their paces in a combination of hurling skills and training from ‘Ireland’s Fittest Family’. By the end of the session our students were exhausted but joyful and appreciative of the experience of training with Ireland’s best hurling coach. Davy then spoke to our students on topics like physical fitness and wellbeing. For the next 30 minutes all the players, staff, students and local members of the community got autographs, hurleys and jerseys signed, selfies and group photos. An exhausted Davy then sat in our staffroom for tea, sandwiches and chat. All agreed that Davy’s visit was an incredible day for our school. Our students were initially in awe but Davy’s friendly and approachable manner soon had everyone at ease. Our school community wishes to thank Davy for visiting our school and bringing such joy and excitement. Finally, we are very grateful to Londis and especially Timothy’s Londis who made this fantastic day possible. Thanks to Mr Timmons, Ms Fleming and Ms Conway for all their help and organisation with the event. Only for their time and effort put in this would not have been as successful an event as it turned out.

Well done to all 1st, 2nd, and 5th year students who completed their summer assessments last week. Our students have worked exceptionally hard since the start of the year, and this has no doubt been noticed by their teachers. This can be a difficult week in school for some but will no doubt be very rewarding.
