Last Fri­day af­ter two weeks of hard work sitting mock Ju­nior Cert. ex­ams, the Third Year stu­dents cel­e­brated with a trip to Ar­margh for the day. The aim was to visit the Plan­e­tar­ium and to at­tend the work­shops there. The day be­gan with one hun­dred and ten stu­dents and seven teach­ers meet­ing at school at 8.45.am. to be­gin their jour­ney north by coach. A short break was made in Drogheda to visit the Cathe­dral and have some re­fresh­ment. Once in Ar­margh, tours around the Plan­e­tar­ium were fol­lowed by the work­shops where the stu­dents set out to build their own space rock­ets and then launched them with great suc­cess.

The next ac­tiv­ity also de­lighted the girls – shop­ping - which was deemed to be much cheaper up North than in the Repub­lic. Armed with bags full of pur­chases the group fi­nally made it back to the gates of Loreto, Bray by 6.45.pm. tired but ex­tremely sat­is­fied hav­ing had a ‘great fun day’.


Congratulations to Eire­ann O’Sullivan and Jenny Gal­li­gan, two Fifth Year stu­dents who did won­der­fully well in the Loreto Mace De­bates. They have reached the fi­nals hav­ing over­come sev­eral other Loreto Schools on the way.


On Fri­day Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents are mak­ing a col­lec­tion in aid of oe­sopha­gal cancer.


On the third of March bus­loads of stu­dents em­barked on the an­nual ven­ture to a Le­in­ster School Fi­nal. Decked out in war paint, ties on heads and chants at the ready, they were on their way. The Loreto Bray Foot­ball Team stormed their way through the league. As a re­sult they se­cured a place in the Le­in­ster Fi­nal for the third year in a row!

This fi­nal high­lighted the over­whelm­ing tal­ent that the soc­cer play­ing stu­dents of our school pos­sess. There is def­i­nite po­ten­tial for this squad to win tons of tro­phies in years to come. Congratulations to all the girls who played.
