The Geography Department organised an Inter House Quiz on the 20th November as part of Geography Week. This event was a great success. Each class had a representative and all the Houses demonstrated super team spirit and developed their Geography knowledge. In the end the Gazelles won and gained 30 House Points for the Gazelle House. Well done!
A big thank you to the Geography teachers for a great week and for including "Our House".

Many thanks to all the people (players and supporters) who made the journey to Ashbourne for last Saturdays (29th of November) gaelic match between Loreto College and Donaghmore Ashbourne GAA club in memory of Elaine Moran. The big turnout meant that there was a lovely atmosphere for the game. The match was a great spectacle as both teams performed excellently. We would also like to thank Donaghmore Ashbourne for all their hospitality. We are honoured that the Moran family have donated a trophy to the school to be awarded annually in memory of Elaine. This will be on display in the trophy case and will be awarded for the first time next May.
Congratulations to the French Debating Team who won a tough debate against The High School on Friday, 28 November. The team comprised Niamh Ryan, Emma Horan, Helen Brady and Kate Fullen.
