• We said good bye to our 6th years this week. On Tuesday we had the annual dress up day. Yet again the students and staff were entertained by all the wonderful costumes created by the students.  Cardi B, Lil Wayne,  Roman Gods, the ‘pesky’ kids from Scooby-Doo, all the characters from Mario Cart, Destiny’s Child, Oreo Biscuits, ‘a Day at the beach’ and many, many more made an appearance on the day. On Tuesday evening we had the 6th year graduation ceremony. It was a beautiful ceremony where the students along with their families reminisced and celebrated six wonderful years in Loreto Balbriggan. Thank you to Father Brendan who celebrated Mass and to the Parents Association who provided light refreshments afterwards. We are very proud of all the mature, confident young women who graduated on Tuesday and would like to wish everyone the very best of luck in their exams.

• 1st year students  Olivia O’Shea, Eiman Khan, Abigail O’Brien and Erica O’Brien took part in the Salter’s Festival of Chemistry at Trinity College Dublin.

• As we approach the State Exams we will keep in our prayers the third and sixth years.  For the third years, the Junior Cert marks the end of their time as junior students in the school,  while for the 6th years the Leaving Cert is the stepping stone to their chosen career.  We know that his time of year can be a very stressful and anxious, so we hope that the following prayer is a source of encouragement and comfort to all students sitting exams during the next few challenging weeks.

Dear God, I know you are with me and love me.
Give me peace of mind as I prepare for this time of study.
Help me to focus on my books and notes.
Keep me free from all distractions so that I will make
the best use of this time that is available to me.
Give me insight that I might understand what I am studying,
and help me to remember it when the time comes.
Above all, I thank you for the ability to be able to study
and for the many gifts and talents you have given me.
With your help, I will be focused and calm, confident and firm
in the knowledge that you are with me today and always.
