October 23rd

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.
