First years get a taste of school ac­tiv­i­ties

Bray People - - NEWS -

FRESHERS Day was held at Loreto Bray last week to in­form first years about the wide va­ri­ety of ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able to stu­dents.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of ac­tiv­i­ties, sports, groups and com­mit­tees gath­ered in the school to show the new mem­bers of the stu­dent body ev­ery­thing they have to of­fer.

They set up stall in the all-pur­pose area last Fri­day, where a vast ar­ray of ac­tiv­i­ties drew the at­ten­tion of the new girls.

Bray Em­mets were among those to dis­play what they do and en­cour­age stu­dents to take up foot­ball or camo­gie.

Other sports rep­re­sented on the day in­cluded bas­ket­ball and hockey.

The Peace and Jus­tice Group was there, and its mem­bers ex­plained that the vol­un­tary group is part of a move­ment within all Loreto schools with the aims of rais­ing aware­ness of jus­tice is­sues, and money to sup­port wor­thy projects.

The en­vi­ron­ment com­mit­tee was well rep­re­sented at the event, with plenty of so­cially con­scious girls sign­ing up.

The his­tory and pol­i­tics so­ci­ety and the de­bat­ing so­ci­ety were a wel­come sight for those in­ter­ested in such sub­jects.

The day also in­cluded a per­for­mance by mem­bers of the dance club.
