With Christ­mas just around the cor­ner, Loreto Bray is busily in full swing prepa­ra­tion mode with en­thu­si­asm and fes­tive spirit .Our choir are pre­par­ing won­der­ful Christ­mas car­ols for the an­nual carol ser­vice. With the Christ­mas con­certs sched­uled for the 19th and 22nd De­cem­ber, au­di­tions and re­hearsals are tak­ing place. This Wed­nes­day, to raise money for the rain­bow chil­dren and to cel­e­brate this jolly sea­son, a ‘santa-fun-run’ will take place along Bray seafront. All in all, Loreto Bray has wasted no time in pre­par­ing for a fun filled Christ­mas.


The new­est sub com­mit­tee of the Stu­dent Coun­cil is for the en­vi­ron­ment. This com­mit­tee has lots of ideas to im­prove the school en­vi­ron­ment and sur­round­ings. The plan is to hold more ‘Sparkle Days’, a fun and novel way to get the school spick and span in next to no time. En­ergy sav­ing plans are be­ing worked on. No doubt, in the months to come, there will be big im­prove­ments and changes in the school.


The Stu­dent Coun­cil are or­ga­niz­ing a stu­dent recipe book in aid of Sr Orla’s school in Su­dan. Each year group have been given a dif­fer­ent cat­e­gory, such as first years or­gan­ise starters, sec­ond years or­gan­ise desserts etc. Stu­dents will sub­mit recipes and the most creative and tasty make it in to the book. It is hoped that this will be­come a reg­u­lar tra­di­tion. Watch this space!!!


On Mon­day 1st De­cem­ber, the Se­nior Ger­man De­bat­ing Team took part in a chal­leng­ing de­bate against Moun­tjoy Com­pre­hen­sive School from Malahide. “Schuler sollen wahrend der schulzeit nicht ar­beiten”. The mo­tion was that “stu­dents shouldn’t work dur­ing school term”. Our girls in­cluded Ox­anna Las­tovet­sky, Lara Ge­orge, Cris­tine Rubal­cava and Katie Daven­port. It was a very ex­cit­ing and chal­leng­ing de­bate, but de­spite a hard fought bat­tle, Moun­tjoy Com­pre­hen­sive stole the winning ti­tle. How­ever the girls en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and look for­ward to the next de­bate.


On Fri­day 28th Novem­ber, class 308 hosted a ques­tions and an­swers ses­sion with the lo­cal Wick­low TDs. Art O’Leary opened the day de­scrib­ing the world of pol­i­tics and the work car­ried out by TDs. All the class got in­volved in de­ci­sion mak­ing for the coun­try as well as com­ing up with a new bud­get! Liz McManus, An­drew Doyle, Billy Tim­mons and Joe Be­han couldn’t have been more ac­com­mo­dat­ing in an­swer­ing ques­tions and shar­ing their knowl­edge. When all queries were an­swered, tea, cof­fee and bis­cuits were served and a group photo was taken. A very big thank you to all those in­volved. A great day was had by all the girls.


A huge con­grat­u­la­tions and well done to Claire Kane who re­cently took part in the Youth Lead­er­ship De­vel­op­ment Com­pe­ti­tion run by Ro­tary In­ter­na­tional.. Ro­tary In­ter­na­tional is a world­wide or­gan­i­sa­tion made up of thou­sands of clubs.. Th­ese clubs work from lo­cal up to in­ter­na­tional level. The aim is to pro­vide a ser­vice to those less for­tu­nate. As part of the com­pe­ti­tion, the Ro­tary clubs were choos­ing three candidates at the fi­nal in­ter­views to travel to Strass­bourg, were stu­dents would get to­gether to dis­cuss top­ics af­fect­ing the EU. Claire worked her way up through each round of in­ter­views and was cho­sen forth – only one place off trav­el­ling.

Well done to Claire, she did us proud.
