Our an­nual Pi Day was held on Mon­day 14. It is an enor­mously pop­u­lar event each year with Fifth Year stu­dents or­gan­is­ing the events of the day and show­ing their love of Math­e­mat­ics. A 'Pi' bak­ing competition proved to be the high­light of the day with some amaz­ingly in­ven­tive de­signs to rep­re­sent the geo­met­ric re­la­tion­ship be­tween the ra­dius of a cir­cle and its cir­cum­fer­ence.


On Mon­day evening the yearly Dublin Schools' Quiz was held in St. Michael’s Col­lege, Balls­bridge. Two Loreto, Bray teams rep­re­sented the school from Fifth Year and Sixth Year. It was great fun with the whole evening con­ducted in Span­ish and ques­tions based on knowl­edge of the His­panic world cov­er­ing Mu­sic, Ge­og­ra­phy, Fa­mous Peo­ple, Fa­mous Mon­u­ments, His­tory, Fi­es­tas etc. Span­ish ‘Tapas’ were served at the in­ter­val.


Tues­day was the day cho­sen for the Tro­caire fast this year when many stu­dents do a vol­un­tary spon­sored fast for the day to col­lect money for Tro­caire. This year's ap­peal will help the poor of the world in such places as Hon­duras. To keep their minds off food dur­ing lunch hour a ta­ble quiz took place in the school hall for all those tak­ing part in the fast.


Seventy fifth year stu­dents left in the early hours of Wed­nes­day for a four day trip to Paris with nine teach­ers. An ac­tion packed visit has been or­gan­ised for the girls who are vis­it­ing all the main sites of the French cap­i­tal with a day's out­ing to Dis­ney World.
