School Debating

We are tremendously proud of our inaugural debating team who were victorious in a closely contested debate in Bunscoil Loreto, Gorey.

Shoebox Appeal for Team Hope

A message from our Student Council: We would like to thank everyone who brought in a shoebox this year. In total we got 85 boxes! We would like to thank everyone for supporting Team Hope and helping children in Eastern Europe and Africa. The children who receive your shoebox will be delighted with it! It is very important to look after the children who are less fortunate than we are, especially at Christmas time because they deserve a nice Christmas too. We are delighted to have sent all the shoeboxes over and we hope to do it all again next year! Jennifer Allen and Sophia White

We love being an active school!! Those who moved really well were tapped on the shoulder to indicate that they had won a homework pass! We also had the pleasure of awarding our literacy narrative story writing competition winners. The standard was so high which reflected all the work the teachers had done around the genre. Ms. Gilmartin Ryan and Ms. D’Arcy had tough decisions to make when adjudicating! We will run another writing … Continue reading
