Eve Reidy (Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Coordinator) Inaugural Speech

Eve Reidy (Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Coordinator) Inaugural Speech

Good morning everyone.  My name is Eve Reidy and I am the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Coordinator.

This is our first year introducing this programme and I know many of you are probably wondering what and who we are.  We are a group of students who are committed to creating a positive atmosphere in the school, one in which everyone feels safe and enjoys spending time in.  However, this movement is so much more than just one group of students.  It is an empowering programme that we hope inspires students and staff in the school to be kind to one another and appreciate each other. 

Bullying has always existed in schools and the workplace.  However, in recent years, the impact of social media has increased its frequency and threat.  Here, at Loreto Foxrock, we strongly believe that a student's happiness in school is the most important thing, which is why we are introducing this powerful programme. 

The aim of this programme is not to make anyone feel guilty or shame anyone into thinking that they have done something wrong but rather to give you the tools to understand what is the right thing to do the next time.  I am aware that we all make mistakes.  We all have experienced moments where we have spoken before we thought.  There are times that I myself have been insensitive, selfish or impatient towards others when I should have been more empathetic and understanding.  Unfortunately, no one can escape these moments as they are part of human nature but what’s important, is to recognise our mistake, apologise and learn from it.

Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Launch 2017

Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Launch 2017

LAUNCHED:  A New Loreto College Foxrock Student led Initiative –

ANTI-BULLYING AMBASSADORS 2017

We are absolutely delighted to announce the launch of a new and exciting student led and student implemented initiative here in our school.

Members of our Student Council 2016/17 addressed their wish for everyone in our school to experience the very best of what it means to be part of the community of Loreto College Foxrock.  They wanted to find a way to encourage and support all of our students in ensuring that our school is a safe, happy, kind and inclusive place for each student.  Most impressively they wanted to do this from within the student body.

Following on from that, two of our students, Anna MacNulty and Eve Reidy, approached some staff members about these ideas.  They made a presentation about their vision for this understanding of what the spirit of Mary Ward, means in practical terms, for every Loreto students’ treatment of each student within our school – a way of acting that is centred on kindness, compassion and consideration.

TY Visit to Ploughing Championships 2017

TY Visit to Ploughing Championships 2017

The Ploughing Championships-

Thursday 21st  September 2017

Our whole year group went to The National Ploughing Championships in Tullamore, Co. Offaly on the 21st September.  We were very lucky with the weather as it didn’t rain while we were there!  When we first arrived we were surrounded by 1,000’s of stalls.  There were so many different types of stalls, some of these being food, livestock, forestry, education and Bio Energy and Agriculture stalls.  A lot of well-known companies had stalls such as Spin 1038, Lidl and Aldi.  Most of us got plenty of free items from them!  If you wandered enough you would find cows and sheep for sale.  Our task was to complete a worksheet and one of the questions required us to ask farmers a couple questions.  So, we all got to talk to some farmers about Brexit and about the ploughing.  We got to see some of the ploughing (including the horse drawn ploughing!)  We got the time to wander and experience Europe’s largest outdoor event.  Our visiting Spanish students had just arrived so they got to sample a unique part of Irish culture.  Some of us were very happy to find a couple of amusement rides near the ploughing!  Overall, I think we all had a wonderful time at the Ploughing Championships this year and for some, it was a new experience.
