First Year Sports Sampling Day took place on Friday, 15 September 2017.  All 1st Years had the opportunity of engaging in a variety of different sports and we hope they will now have the confidence and enthusiasm to take part in extra curricular sport here in the school and outside.  Thanks to Ms Donna Graham and Mr Christopher Steele PE teachers for organising the day and to all the other staff who helped out.  Click here for photos

ECO-UNESCO Young Environmentalist Awards – Great Success for Loreto Swords!   In the Junior Overall category, the ‘Let it Bee’ project was the winner, which also scooped the Biodiversity Award.  The students provided a habitat for bees and other insects and raised awareness about the decline in bee population due to chemical sprays and the threat of pollutants to the natural world.  Our students planted a garden, organised a concert and a drama and provided flower seeds for parents and Fingal County Council agreed to plant.  Well done girls on this great achievement and thanks to Ms Deirdre Scully, teacher.  Click here for photos
