Rosemont TY student selected for the prestigious Iveagh Scholars Programme
We are delighted for Ursala, TY, who has recently heard that she has been selected as a participant for the 2016/2017 Iveagh Scholars Programme. The judges described Ursala’s submission as ‘engaging and insightful’ and they felt that she will make a valuable contribution to the week long programme. Iveagh Scholars will run from Monday 03 April to Friday 07 April. We wish Ursala the best of luck with the programme and look forward to hearing her experiences.
Mace junior competition
On Saturday 5th March, three second years Hilary, Lucy and Henrietta took part in the Leinster finals of the Mace Junior Debating Competition. They had been selected from a starting group of 350 students, with 80 making it to the final. The girls all had to do 4 debates during the day. The competition is very demanding as they only have 20 minutes to prepare their speeches and they have to speak for 5 minutes.
Their motions included child labour, care of the elderly and the Taoiseach visiting President Trump in Washington! All three students showcased their skills in each debate and were highly commended by the judges. Hilary and Lucy have made it through to the national Mace Debating Finals which take place on Saturday 25th March. We wish them the best of luck!

It is a super achievement for the girls and their netball coach Ms. O’Malley and we wish them the very best of luck.
New Student Council
Recently at Rosemont School, the new Head Girl, Deputy Head Girl and Prefects were elected to the school’s Student Council.
We were first informed of the elections in January, when our class prefect and teachers told us we would need to begin preparing for interviews and speeches in late January. We were told that the process involved a short interview with the Principal, Deputy Principal and Student Council Liaison Teacher, and then we would present speeches to the entire group of teachers and classmates from 5th and 6th year.
Rosemont take the
South Dublin Basketball Cadette C Title
This year Rosemont were determined to retain their title from last year which they did with great skill and effort. It was an outstanding team performance from all players. The score was always close with Newpark giving nothing away easily. Rosemont fought hard and with Rosemont’s captain Grace Meaney leading the pack to victory, the girls played some great basketball.
The final score was: 30-19. Ms O Malley was thrilled for the girls and said "I have never seen the girls play so well. All of the girls played such a vital role in reaching the finals and the team really came together on the day of the final. All of the girls not did only themselves proud but also did their school and families too. This is part of the story of a very bright future for basketball in Rosemont which I am very excited about."
