‘Handsome Devil’ a film starring Andrew Scott, Moe Dunford and Amy Huberman need extras for the filming of a rugby final scene. Transition Year students, their families are all welcome to take part. Taking part would give you a small insight into a working film set, plus the benefit of perhaps being on the ‘big screen’.

The production company filming 'Handsome Devil' has full production insurance, which would cover extras, as well limited liability and location insurance for the UCD Bowl itself.

Catering would be provided for throughout and they are currently looking at having a few famous faces from the world of rugby attend as well, so as to keep the crowd entertained.

Filming would take place from 15.00 to 18.00or if you wish to stay late 23.30

Please note that this is not a Loreto College Foxrock school activity and will not be supervised by LCF personnel. Students need parental/guardian consent - a release form has to be signed by a parent/guardian and returned on the day.These have been distributed to students at TY Assembly on Wednesday 16th September alongside an explanatory note.

Refugee Solidarity Demonstration

Refugee Solidarity Demonstration

On Saturday 12th October, a combined group of students from Loreto Foxrock, Navan and Swords, met to attend the Refugee Solidarity Demonstration at the Spire, O' Connell Street.  Most of these students are members of the schools' Social Justice Groups.  Any student from 1st to 6th Year is welcome to join this group.

Loreto Foxrock had a great turnout from TY, 5th and 6th Year students .

The girls gave up their Saturday afternoon to show solidarity with the plight of the very many refugees worldwide fleeing from conflict, poverty and persecution. It was great to see such student activism.Our school continues in its efforts by collecting clothing goods which will be delivered to the Calais Refugee Solidarity Group, who will deliver donated clothes and blankets to the many refugees in transit camps in Calais.

TY Team Building Trip to Birr Co. Offaly

Last Wednesday 2nd September, TY students had the opportunity to travel to Birr Outdoor Education Centre for a two night trip.  We got to experience a wide range of activities including gorge walking, kayaking, archery, rock climbing, abseiling, horse riding, canoeing and a selection of team games including ‘selfie’ orienteering!  We even got to experience the outdoors at night by camping out in the woods which was an experience we will never forget!  We sang songs, played games and chatted around the campfire.  We all highly enjoyed the outing as we felt it bonded us both with our classes and as a year.

2015 Transition Year Trip

2015 Transition Year Trip

2015 TY Trip:     Birr Outdoor Recreation Centre

An activity filled two days has been experienced by 103 TY students.  Gorge walking; kayaking; canoeing; hiking and abseiling were just some of the activities that the girls enjoyed.  A highlight, but cold night highlight, was camping in the woods for one night.  Camp fires, spooky tales, and much chatter served as some distraction from the decidedly chilly climate!  It was a great start to the year and we hope that the girls continue it in an adventurous spirit.
