Loreto Secondary School
MINOR B HOCKEY
Well done to the Minor B hockey team who drew 0-0 against a very competitive team from King’s Hospital. The Cadette A basketball team won their match against Loreto Foxrock and are now through to the Loreto league semi-final. The under 16 Badminton team won their match against St Raphaela’s recently. Congratulations to all the participating players.
Two of our students participated recently in the Leinster Irish Dancing Championships. Megan Mahon of 238 won two first places in the competition and Natalie Byrne from 634 won two prizes for participating in team dances at the championships too. Well done girls.
In 633 Niamh O’Brien sat her HSK level 3 exam which is a Chinese proficiency test. Niamh has been studying Chinese in school since first year. We wish her well as she awaits her results.
On Friday 5th December all Transition Year students had a Retreat. The retreat was held in the Concert Hall and led by Gerry Keegan. The main theme of the retreat was that we are all “Unique and Special”.
The main aspects of the retreat were; song/music and personal experience. Other aspects of the retreat included being more “aware” of yourself in the present moment and quiet reflection. The Transition Year retreat was very enjoyable and thought-provoking.
On Friday 5th December a toy appeal for Barnardos was organised in Loreto Bray. Members of the staff, students and parents brought in toys/books/games and many other items and these have been passed to Barnardos where families will benefit and many young children will enjoy the delights of Christmas. Many thanks to all concerned.
