6th Years Graduation
The 6th years Graduation took place in May. The day began with the 6th years having coffee in the staff room with the teachers. Then the 1st year students helped the 6th years to be robed in their graduation gowns, and gave them each a symbolic red rose. 1st – 4th years put on a special concert for the 6th years and their parents. The Graduation Mass followed, with an inspiring homily from Fr Justin. The 5th years were busy meanwhile preparing the graduation lunch, which was magnificent.
A big thank you to June, our General Manager, for coordinating everything. After lunch, the graduation ceremony took place, with speeches from our outgoing Head Girl, Katrina Yoder, a parents’ representative, Michael Aherne, our Past Pupil Union representative, Aisling Sheerin, and Miss Dean.
The girls were all presented with beautiful rose-themed bracelets, as a memento of their time in Rosemont. We wish our girls the very best in their exams and future studies.
Girls who code @Mastercard
The 1st years spent four Thursday afternoons this term learning to write code at MasterCard in Sandyford.
A big thank you to Mairead Lynn and her team at MasterCard for reaching out to invite the Rosemont girls to their initiative ‘Girls who code @mastercard’. Our team loved it! They found it exciting and interesting to have the opportunity to learn a range of coding languages in the very cool setting of a modern office environment.
I have learned some really useful techniques and skills that I will use in the future.
Before I did this course I never thought about becoming a programmer, but now I think I might like to do it.’
I would really like to become a programmer because I really like to do these kinds of things.
