Strictly for Aoife Updates

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!

1916 Commemoration Art Competition Results

1916 Commemoration Art Competition Results

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.
