- Schools are first and foremost, places of learning
Regardless of his subject profile or co-curricular interests, we expect every senior student to apply himself diligently in every lesson, every activity every day! Indeed, we hope that they go home a little tired after a day of learning at Rostrevor because it means that they have been stretched in their thinking, overcome challenges and developed new strengths.
Understanding that senior boys are still developing their social and emotional intelligence, we know that they are capable of accepting responsibility for their actions and committing to a rigorous academic program. We also know that most thrive in this environment of high expectations and high support; where they know that as they work hard, their teachers are right beside them helping them to achieve their goals. This is a feature of our graduates' valedictory statements how much they have enjoyed the challenge and the partnership with outstanding teachers who were equally committed to their success.
Ultimately, it matters not what you study rather your application and commitment to Palma Merenti that will lead you to success.
