We would like to warmly welcome you all back to another year full of opportunities at Loreto Balbriggan. We hope you have enjoyed a well deserved summer break. To all new staff and students, we hope that you are settling into the vibrant atmosphere of our school. We would like to, in particular, wish Mr Garvey and Ms Barnett the best of luck in their role as our new deputy principals alongside Ms Gallen. To our first year students, we are sure that in your six years here, you will, in the words of Mary Ward, “... come to do much”. We hope the transition from primary to secondary level has been a positive experience.

We would like to congratulate all of our newly appointed student leaders, captains, coordinators and senior prefects. May you thrive in your role as leaders and inspire others to do the same.

To our fellow sixth years, as we near the end of our journey together, we would like to wish you all the very best in the year ahead. We hope that this final chapter will allow us to create memories that we will cherish in years to come. Although the road ahead may be rocky, we should keep in mind the infamous fable of The Father, The Sons and The Sticks; wherein we learn that there is strength in numbers and together, we are invincible. Let us strive with passion to achieve all of our dreams. As the wise man, Steve Perry, once said, “Don’t stop believing”.

We hope the year ahead is filled with joy and success for you all. We will leave you with the ever-inspiring words of Mary Oliver that hang in our foyer; “Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one, wild and precious life?”


Manny, Aisling, Eibhlin and Sarah.
