Geography Week 2021
From the 15th to the 19th of November, the Rosemont Geography Department organised Geography Week in the school. The objective of this week was to give all members of the school community a flavour of the importance of Geography around us and to irradiate the significance of geography in today’s day and age, in a creative and stimulating way.
Every year group was involved in enjoyable Geography activities throughout the week- The first years took charge of designing and creating beautiful posters promoting Geography and putting them up around the school. The second years played Geography games in class, while the third years created their own weather instruments! The Transition Years prepared a challenging quiz for fifth and sixth years to complete at lunchtime, and had the opportunity to attend a European Movement Ireland program that reviewed the issues raised and the targets set during the recent COP26 conference, focusing particularly on the impact on Ireland and the EU.
A fascinating geography quiz question was announced every morning, and students put their answers into a box outside Ms. Doyle’s room, who would then pick a daily winner.
This year’s Geography Week was a huge success, and could not have been carried out without Ms. Doyle, Ms. Kelly, and Ms. Lyons and their dedication and creativity! Without a doubt, it was an opportunity that opened everyone’s eyes to the prevalence of Geography, and stressed the influence of our actions on our futures. by Nabeeha M, TY
On the 15th of November, the Transition Year students attended a talk on COP26, as part of Geography Week. The talk was hosted by the European Commission and European Movement Ireland. Everyone was eager to learn about the agreements and pledges made at COP26, and what that meant for us in Ireland, and society as a whole. Over the past couple of weeks, COP26 has dominated the headlines, and now that the conference has concluded, we now have an insight into the reality of what the agreements made, means for us. We were first informed of the deals and pledges the European Union made, during COP26, such as ‘The European Green Deal’, which is hoped to lead Europe towards a better future. The key message from the talk was that of global solidarity, and how it is vital for us to implement the actions, in order to achieve the results. We were informed of the fact that our most efficient tool against global warming and climate change, is that of energy efficiency. Overall, the Transition Years thoroughly enjoyed the talk, and found it to be most interesting and inspiring. By Ella O, TY
