First years get a taste of school activities
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.
