Loreto Sec­ondary School

Bray People - - SCHOOL REPORT -


Con­grat­u­la­tions to Chloe Shor­tall, a Sixth year stu­dent in Loreto Bray who came sec­ond in the Chi­nese Bridge Com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised by the Con­fu­cius In­sti­tute on the 29th March. Chloe had to write and present a speech in Chi­nese, sing a song and take part in a Chi­nese cul­ture quiz. Chloe's prize is a trip to China for two weeks in Oc­to­ber in or­der to watch the first place win­ner com­pete fur­ther in the Bridge Com­pe­ti­tion. FIRST AID COURSE

An in­valu­able first aid course was taught to all of the TY classes this year and this week TY5 were taught med­i­cal knowl­edge that they could use in any emer­gency. From learn­ing CPR to wrap­ping a ban­dage, they are now ex­pe­ri­enced in how to han­dle a med­i­cal emer­gency.

Gary, the first aid in­struc­tor, went step by step in ev­ery as­pect of first aid, teach­ing the ba­sics and us­ing real life sit­u­a­tions and role play to make the se­ri­ous­ness of an emer­gency feel real. Aswell as be­ing ben­e­fi­cial, the course made the TY's more con­fi­dent in them­selves and the first aid skills they al­ready had. (Sophia McDon­ald) FILM WORK­SHOP

The Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents of Loreto Bray had the op­por­tu­nity to write and di­rect their own short film with the group FilmCir­cle from Thurs­day 27th March to Tues­day 1st April.. Each class was given one day and two cam­era men to bring their ideas to life by the or­gan­i­sa­tion. The stu­dents had sev­eral weeks prior to come up with a script and es­tab­lish ac­tors, props and lo­ca­tions, all with the aid of their English teacher.

The work­shop en­abled the pupils to dis­cover the col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort and or­gan­i­sa­tion es­sen­tial to cre­ate any film and the amount of time nec­es­sary to shoot even a cou­ple of min­utes' footage, as well as adopt­ing the ba­sics of pro­fes­sional film­ing and sound equip­ment.
