• Locals in Balbriggan were puzzled by the amount of Loreto students walking through the town last Tuesday afternoon. The answer was simple, all students and staff were going to the Church to celebrate the start of our new school year with our annual School Mass.

• A group of our science students went to the 30th EU Young Scientist Competition hosted in Dublin in the RDS.

The girls got to meet past pupils Diana Bura, Khadija Gulla, Rhenunka Chintapalli and Maria Louise Fufezan who volunteered to help out at the event.
