On Wednesday we had our annual school Mass.  Due to COVID 19,  it took a very different format as the Mass was prerecorded and then played to all students. The theme of the Mass was ‘Hope’ a very apt theme for these very different times we now live in. The Mass gave all students the chance to reflect and give thanks that we are all back together again and to be hopeful that one day soon the pandemic will be over and life in Loreto Balbriggan will return to normal. Many thanks to celebrant Father Dónal and to Sr Teresa from the Loreto Community who made the whole occasion so special.


Transition year students enjoyed two days of fun activities on Thursday and Friday. Students participated in Halloween cupcake decorating, and dance workshops which included contemporary and musical theatre. We are looking forward to various performances later on in the year.


While adhering to all the health and safety guidelines, 1st year  Home Economics students were delighted to cook this week in their practical classes, with some very delicious results.
