French Week was celebrated in style this year at Loreto with a number of cultural and culinary events on offer to all.

The week kicked off with a typical French breakfast served to all Junior cycle French students. Later in the week Grace O Malley, a 1st Year student, was crowned ‘Meilleure cuisinière’ or Best French Cook for her original patisserie.

As usual, music featured high on the agenda. The French singer, Caroline Moreau, along with guitarist Lucas, managed to woo the students with a beautiful selection of French songs. The students also recorded their second French music video and were introduced to contemporary French music with Francovision.

The French quiz proved very popular with a tight battle for first place. And finally some lucky students even got to try out the traditional French games of ‘boules’ and ‘Lacrosse’ during P. E class.

Congratulations and a big thank-you to all who participated.
Vive le français!

Run 4 Rumbek.  This year during Healthwise Week, in conjunction with the Justice and Peace Committee, the Run 4 Rumbek Campaign aims to raise much needed funds for our sister school in Loreto Rumbek.  Over the course of a fortnight, staff and students in Loreto Foxrock will be running/ jogging or walking kilometres in an effort to achieve the distance to Loreto Rumbek - 6,111km 'as the crow flies'.  By raising sponsorship in the school and local community for each Kilometre 'banked' we hope to raise funds to assist in the building of new classrooms at Loreto Rumbek.  Check out our video below for more details of the challenges and justice issues facing Loreto Rumbek and for more details as to how the Run 4 Rumbek campaign will work.
Best wishes to everyone involved and if you see the students out running in the local area in the coming weeks - give them all the support and encouragement you can!!

More information on Loreto Rumbek can also be found on the Loreto Education Centre website at http://loretoeducationcentre.ie/

The Student Council meets every Friday at lunchtime in F5. All students are welcome to attend or observe and Student Council members are always delighted to hear about student issues.

So far this year the Council has been involved in a number of initiatives:

It has successfully dealt with issues of micro-waves in the canteen, and extra capacity has been installed. Other housekeeping issues such as 'soap dispensers' have also been addressed.

From the every-day….to the innovative! This year the Student Council has worked towards developing spirit and friendship within the school. To this end, a successful 'movie-night' was hosted for 1st Year students in December. Thanks also to the 4th Year Mini-company who got involved. The 2nd Years were treated to a drumming session with David Day from Jabbe, Jabbe, Jembe. It is hoped to have similar 'group' activities for the remaining year groups in the coming term.

Watch out for Student Council involvement in the forthcoming 'Healthwise Week'. Student Councillors will be 'brand ambassadors' for the week, encouraging everyone to get involved in as many activities as possible.

Later in the year, the Parent School Association and Student Council will work together to reinstate the School Sports Day - watch this space!!!

Remember the Student Council is your voice in the school. Get involved, raise concerns, bring your suggestions and together we can work to improve the school for everyone.

Click on the link St Brigid - pdf file, whose feast day is celebrated on 1st February. 

St. Bridget has many ways of spelling her name. Sometimes she is Brid or Breda and sometimes Brigid.  Although she was born in County Meath, we associate her more with Kildare where she spent most of her adult life.  When she was a young girl she heard St. Patrick preaching so she was amongst the first generation of Christians in Ireland.  From a very early age she was known for her kindness and generosity.
