News update, Apr 13th, 2019

• This week we were all transported back in time to 1960s America as TY students performed ‘Hairspray’ to a packed house each night. The audiences were thoroughly entertained by the wonderful acting and singing. The students designed the set, sourced costumes and props all of which added to the spectacle. Each night the audience was looked after by the very capable PR team who ran ‘front of house’ and refreshments.  Yet again the students rose to the challenge and produced another memorable TY musical.

• TY students also completed their end of year interviews. The students had the opportunity to showcase various projects, activities and assignments that they completed throughout their very busy year. The interviews form part of the assessment that will go towards their final grade, when they graduate in May.


• Best of luck to this year’s TY mock trial team who are competing on Saturday in the annual National Mock Trial Competition. The competition is organised by Public Access to Law and will take place in the Criminal Courts of Justice.

• All 2nd year students went orienteering in Ardgillen on Thursday. They had the opportunity to use their navigational skills using a map and compass to navigate their way around the beautiful demesne.


• This week we celebrated Intercultural week. We are very proud of the cultural diversity in our school community. At present we have 42 countries represented in our student body all of which add to the special atmosphere in Loreto Balbriggan. Many activities were organised during the week. On Friday the gym was host to a wide variety of stalls exhibiting   many delicious foods from all over the world. Afterwards the students were entertained by a global fashion show and ethnic dancing. The winner of our Intercultural world cup soccer was team Nigeria.
