As we approach the summer we reflect on what has been yet another fantastic year here in Loreto Balbriggan. From academic excellence to sporting victories and a myriad of other activities we are constantly reminded of the diligence, tenacity and talents of our students. In Loreto, we are proud of each and every girl who contributes to school life, creating the wonderful happy atmosphere which we all enjoy. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff who work tirelessly to encourage and support the girls in all their endeavours. Their constant presence and affirmation is greatly appreciated. We hope that everyone has a lovely summer and returns refreshed in August, ready to begin another school year.
