New School Building Granted Planning Permission
Rosmini Community School is delighted to announce that, in June 2018, our proposed new building has received planning permission from An Bord Pleanála. Granted initial permission by Dublin City Council in August 2017, this move by an Bord Pleanála, is wonderful news for all involved in the school. We have been providing inclusive education on this site since 1970 and we very much look forward to continuing this tradition. This image, provided by NMA Architects, shows the view from the exit on Gracepark Road. These are exciting times for all in Rosmini and this decision brings our new school one step closer.
President Higgins visits Rosmini
President Higgin's visit to Rosmini was a truly memorable experience for all on campus. Here the president is photographed with recently retired principal, Ms Cherry, former deputy principal, Ms Bourke and the Rosmini Student Council organised by Ms Dunphy. During his visit the president said "this is not just a school it is also a real community, a place that doesn't simply value a pupil by how well they do at their lessons but also by how hard they work, by how well they treat each other and of course by how much use they make of all of the individual talents they have been given.
Facilities in Rosmini
The image shows Transition Year students showcasing their digital talents. Our current temporary accommodation has a number of specialist rooms including science, art, music, ICT, woodwork & metalwork, VI resource and learning support. We are grateful to All Hallows College (now part of Dublin City University) who are sharing their wonderful campus with us. We look forward to our new building, complete with state of the art facilities, including sports hall, which in June 2018 was granted permission by An Bord Pleanála.
I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Happy Christmas to our students and parents from all in Rosmini.
