On Thursady we held our senior student leadership ceremony, during which the Head Girl, Deputy Head Girls, Co-0rdinators and Captains received their leadership badges. Students are strongly encouraged to take up leadership roles within the school. Senior students in leadership positions play an important part in school structures and are very positive role models for other students throughout the student body.
Congratulations to the following students who have qualified for the BT Young Scientist Competition. Everyone of the seven entries has qualified and we wish them all the very best of luck with their projects in the competition.

As we approach the midterm break we would like to take its opportunity to commend all the students on how they have come together as a school community and have remained strong in the fight against COVID19. Wearing of masks, regular washing and sanitising hands are now the new normal and it must be said that we are very proud of the way all the students have taken to this new way of life in Loreto. On Friday there was a fantastic atmosphere around the school as both students and staff decorated their masks in keeping with the Hallowe’en theme. The student council also organised a special ‘Trick or Treat’ collection for Temple St, Childrens’ Hospital. They raised €1819.5.
