December House Event - Talent Show


The 19th December was a day to remember as the 2017 Talent Show took place. With entertaining acts from every class group, there was great house spirit and talent shown by all involved.
After tough deliberation by the judges the results were announced with 2T coming in third place winning 20 house points, 5G in second place getting 30 house points and 3M coming out on top overall with 50 house points. It was a great event for the school community to come together just before the holiday break and thoroughly enjoyed by both students and staff.

Loreto Swimming Gala 2017

Loreto Swimming Gala 2017


The Loreto Swimming Gala took place on Thursday the 24th of November in The National Aquatic Centre in Blanchardstown. Our team comprised of students from 1st to 6th year and our team of Transition Year supporters.
There were three age groups; u14, u16 and u18 and in each age group there were four events; freestyle, back crawl, breaststroke and butterfly, as well as two freestyle relays. Everyone swam very well and four girls qualified for the finals of their strokes. The supporters were very enthusiastic and chanted throughout everyone's races.
Overall it was a very enjoyable day. Everyone swam to the best of their ability and we had a great team spirit. We would like to thank Ms. Hoffman and Ms Crinion for accompanying us on the day of the gala.
We look forward to the annual Loreto Swimming Gala next year and hopefully we will win the Spirit Award!!

Launch of New School App!

Today, 21st December, we launch our new school app Flexibuzz.  The purpose of this app is to improve communication between the school and our parent body. The app will replace text messages and will allow instant communication between the school and home.  You will find the instructions on how to download and register with the app in the documents attached. We will continue to use text messaging as a form of communication in conjunction with the app until Sunday 14th January 2018.  After that date we will use the App as our main means of communication.  It will take time for us to fully realise the potential for the app but I know that with your support this initiative will prove to be a success.
