WELL DONE to all the girls who took part in the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition 2015 in the RDS last week. They did a great job and represented our school so well. A special word of congratulations to Alison Keane & Sinead Harcourt who received a ‘Highly Commended’ award for their project entitled "An Investigation into the Quantity of Protein, both Natural and Synthetic, consumed by Gaelic Football and Rugby players and its effect.  The high standard of projects in Alison and Sinead's category, the Intermediate section of the Social & Behavioural Science, was evident this year as it was from this grouping that the overall winners of the competition were chosen.

Student Council Week

This week in Loreto Foxrock, the members of the Student Council have been busy raising the profile of the Council and making everyone more aware of the work that they do on behalf of the students.

On Tuesday, the 2nd Years took part in a percussion workshop and had great fun putting together some different rhythms on the African drums. Rest assured, with some practice and a little bit of teamwork, a 'rockin' performance emerged!

On Thursday evening, members of the Student Council hosted a 'Movie Evening' for 1st Years- Elf, was the suitably festive offering. Thanks also to the 4th Years who looked after catering and ensured the girls were well stocked on all things sweet!! Congratulations to the raffle winners also!

The Student Council hopes that students enjoyed the activities this week and we look forward to future 'whole-year' events in the New Year. As always, Student Council representatives are open to new ideas, so please, keep them coming!! We wish to acknowledge too, the support of the Parent/School Association who have been incredibly encouraging and we look forward to working with them closely as the year progresses.

A final 'Thank You' to all the Student Council members who gave up their time this week to assist with activities and who work away quietly in the background every week to make our school a vibrant and happy place. Well done girls.

By Ms Ryan
