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
Junior Certificate Results 2017 were issued to the students on Wednesday, 13 September 2017. There was a great deal of nervous excitement as the students gathered in the hall. We congratulate the students on their results!
Ms Cronin has worked hard to put together our 1st and 6th Year students in our Big Sister/Little Sister groupings this year. Each year we pair Sixth Year students with First Years to offer advice and support to their ‘younger sister’ as they progress through First Year – thanks to Ms Cronin for organising the groups.
Transition Year 2017/18 began with a bonding trip to Belguim from 7 to 10 September 2017. The girls enjoyed many fun activities and in the process learned a lot about each other and themselves – thanks to the three teachers who accompanied the girs – Ms Mary Gorman, Ms Paula Fitzpatrick and Ms Angela Goucher.
The Year began with a trip to the Art Gallery for the students in 5th and 6th Year Art classes – Ms Lacey and Ms O’Loughlin accompanied the students on the day. They went to the Vermeer Exhibition and then to the Collin Davidson Silent Testimony in Dublin Caslte. Click here for some photos
