A group of students accompanied by Ms Ryan, Ms McGinley & Ms Walsh had an early start on Sunday morning as they headed off for the first leg of their two day cycle (Dublin/Navan/Virginia/Monaghan and back to Dublin). Here are some photos of the cycle, both yesterday and today. We look forward to welcoming them all back at school this afternoon.
Well, the pace is quickening and dance rehearsals are becoming more and more frequent. Only 5 more days to the big event - 4 more days to 'Dress Rehearsals' in front of our own students on Friday night.
Here's a sneak preview of our dancing couples (powerpoint or pdf). - We wish all our dancers the very best of luck and hope that each of you thoroughly enjoys the night. A huge THANK YOU to all of you for your weeks of practice and your tireless commitment to the task. Good luck to you all!!
Loreto College Foxrock.........Strictly for Aoife fundraiser.........O'Reilly Hall UCD.........on Saturday April 23rd.........Doors open 7pm.........Show starts 8pm
Preparations are at 'full-tilt' now. 34 dancers have been training for six weeks with just one more week to go!
And it's not only the dancers who are enormously behind this event - business sponsorship is rolling in with our Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsorship funds. In addition, service suppliers: design, print, photography, hair, make-up, tanning! And of course, UCD O'Reilly Hall are supporting the ‘Strictly’ campaign, all resulting in more funds going directly to the Aoife Beary Trust.
So too is the Loreto College Foxrock community wrapping its arms around this initiative. Tickets went on sale last Tuesday April 5th at 9am …. by 3pm 750 tickets of the 900 available had been sold. There will definitely be a full house on April 23rd!
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FILES BELOW WERE UPDATED ON THURSDAY 14th APRIL 2016 AT 3pm.

The 1916 Art Competition was run as part of our school's commemoration of the centenary of 1916. The entries were A3 size and students were asked to create an original artwork inspired by the Easter Rising of 1916. We think you'll agree that these are all fabulous pieces, inspired by the artist's own impressions of the Easter Rising. The winning student at both senior and junior levels won €50 vouchers for Dundrum Shopping Centre.
The winners were as follows.
Junior Section: Ciara Daly 2 Wigmore, Grace Hayden 2 Wigmore
Senior Section: Alanna Drury 4L, Beth Fuller 4O
Well done to all students who took part. A selection of the entries is currently displayed outside the library.
The TY students who have travelled to Madrid will spend a month there with host families and return to Ireland on 4th May. They attend school with their Spanish friends and get involved in family activities. Here's some lovely photographs (thanks very much to Ms Burke-Kennedy) of some of the beautiful sights in Madrid under clear blue skies! The first picture is of Ruth Crowe getting in some horse riding during the first couple of days.
