Congratulations to all our Leaving Cert class of 2014 on their excellent achievements in the exams, and to their parents and teachers for their constant support and guidance.   The results this year surpassed many students' expectations and are a great testament to the dedication and hard work of our students.  Exceptionally high grades were attained across many subject areas and personal triumphs were achieved by many.  Loreto Foxrock is proud of you and we wish you every happiness and success in the future.

On Wednesday afternoon, 21st May, I brought some of my 2nd & 5th Year Classics students to the cinema in Stillorgan to see Pompeii.  It was a nice way to finish off the school year!  I organised a private screening of the film for the girls.  We felt like VIP’s having the cinema all to ourselves!

Pompeii is a topic on the Junior Certificate Classics curriculum so all the students had studied it in detail and were really looking forward to seeing the film.

On Thursday 8th May, members of the Justice and Peace Group held various events in the school to highlight “Unfair Trade” practices in the world.

a1sx2_Original1_jp-unfair-trade-01.jpg

a1sx2_Original1_jp-unfair-trade-02.jpg a1sx2_Original1_jp-unfair-trade-03.jpg

The students focused on the difficult conditions of labour for many workers in the Developing World, and also on the unfair nature of world trade rules between the Developed World and the Global South.  The Justice and Peace students researched these areas and put together a range of thought provoking events to raise awareness and challenge decision making with regard to consumer choice. 

Activities included a “simulated sweatshop” for Second Years where students experienced what it felt like to work in overcrowded, dimly lit conditions as they performed their sewing “quotas”. Fifth Year students took part in a “Trade Game” which saw them compete against each other for control of Developing Country resources, again highlighting unfair global power structures.  Students were also a shown thought-provoking  presentation, made by Third and Fourth Year students regarding many critical issues in connection with global trade practices. 

To involve some of the many enthusiastic bakers in the school, some students took part in “Fair Trade Brownie Bake” where they were challenged to use as many Fair Trade ingredients as possible in their baking,  The winning First Year group used an impressive amount of Fair Trade ingredients, all bought locally to produce their delicious fare. Well done girls!

The Justice and Peace group worked enthusiastically on this project and we look forward to welcoming more students of any year into the group next year.  Thanks to Ms Healy also for her assistance.
