The School Choir

The School Choir

 “The greatest benefits of singing in a choir come from reducing social isolation; stimulating cognitive function; alleviating low mood and anxiety; improving respiratory function; having fun and relaxing and obtaining a sense of mindfulness and transcendence from everyday worries”. Hilary Moss (University of Limerick).

There are a number of different choirs in the school which are mostly part of the extra-curricular programme.

Each First Year student has the opportunity to sing in a choir, as it is part of their academic timetable.

The school choir is open to all students from First Year to Sixth Year and rehearsals take place at lunchtime.  This choir sings at important occasions during the year, such as the ‘Opening of the Year Mass’ and ‘Prizegiving’.  The choir also has a major role in the Annual Christmas Concert and it participates as a Loreto school in the Grafton Street carol-singing initiative in aid of charity.  In recent years, the choir has also taken part in the Emmanuel Concert at the Helix as part of a massed choir of second level students.

The Loreto Foxrock Junior Choir is open to students from First to Third Year.  This choir rehearses in the morning before school.  The Junior Choir perform a variety of musical styles such as classical, jazz, and popular music.  Each year the Junior Choir performs at major school events, as well as music festivals and competitions.  The Junior Choir has been a successful prize winner of The Kilcoole Music Festival in 2016 and 2017.

Anti-Bullying Whole School Pledge

Anti-Bullying Whole School Pledge

Our Anti-bullying Ambassadors are currently implementing an exciting new initiative based on the principles of kindness and respect.  Our ABAs have invited every student in the school to sign up to a Pledge which is binding for the duration of her years in Loreto Foxrock.

Each student is given the opportunity to both sign a special Pledge book and to place a handprint on the wall in the school in the ‘Ambassadors’ Corner.’  Many of the students have already taken the pledge: By signing the Pledge book and sealing with my handprint, I commit to making our school a happier place by treating everyone with kindness and respect.

What makes this pledge unique is that it is fully designed, planned and implemented by the students themselves – Our ABAs present and explain the pledge to the classes formally before they place their handprints on the wall.  The students are working with their fellow students and there is no more powerful influence than the one they can have on each other.  The ABAs can’t wait to bring you some photos of their completed Pledge wall so here’s a sneak preview and they will keep you updated.  Congratulations Ambassadors – you are doing wonderful work!
