Sr. Orla Treacy - International Women of Courage Award 2019

Sr. Orla Treacy - International Women of Courage Award 2019

Congratulations to Sr. Orla Treacy on being nominated for the International Women of Courage Award 2019.  This award was established by the US Department of State in 2007 to honour women who are making a substantial difference in the lives of women across the world.  Nominated by US Embassies and NGOs, the candidates are selected by the State Department for their courageous and selfless efforts advocating for human rights, women’s equality and social progress, often in the face of great personal risk.

Sr. Orla received this award on 7th March in Washington DC.  She was accompanied to the Awards ceremony by her father and brother and also by Anne Mary Murphy who dedicated a number of years to life in Rumbek.  Sr. Orla sees this award as belonging to the Mission. We hope it was a very happy event for all and look forward to hearing all about it later.

As always we pray for the continued safety and success of this Mission for the young people of South Sudan. We also rejoice with Sr. Orla that the situation there is receiving international recognition.

January Newsletter and Message from Loreto Rumbek

Dear Friends,

Today is a special day in South Sudan as we celebrate the Feast of St Josephine Bakhita. St Bakhita is considered the Patron of modern day slavery and trafficking.
Forced marriage has recently been added into the statistics of modern day slavery and sadly this is a regular reality for us in Loreto Rumbek.

Our Secondary school girls have just begun their new school year while the Primary School begins next week.

Many thanks for your continued support,

blessings
from all of us,
Loreto Rumbek

January House Event - Lip Sync Battle

January House Event - Lip Sync Battle

The January House Event took place on Tuesday 29th January.  This was a Lip Sync Battle. The 6th Years created an Inter 6th Year House team which was led by Eleanor Cripwell (6G).  They had great fun and entertained all of us with their great dance moves to the `Best Song Ever' by One Direction.

First and Second Year performers were full of enthusiasm and showed fantastic house spirit in their group performances.  The overall winners were the First Year Cha Cha Slide group and the 6th Year group.

Well done to all competitors and supporters.  It was a fun event.  Thank you to all the House Committee for promoting the importance of school spirit.

Niamh O`Brien (6M) (House Committee.)
