‘Help Others’ Basketball League
This November we ran a “Help Others” Basketball League.
The players paid €1 to enter,and with the funds raised,we bought as much non perishable foods as we could to donate to the local Branch of St Vincent de Paul. The competition was a great success and there was great excitement for the Finals. All the food that was bought was on display during the finals so the girls could see how much can be done with a little effort. Well done to all who took part or contributed.
A Presentation was made to Leaving Cert student Niamh Martin who scored 116 points in the Post Primary Schools League in the last few weeks.

Stand Up Awareness Week
From Monday 11th to Friday 15th November we recognised Stand up Awareness week.
Stand Up Awareness Week is a time for schools to take a stand against homophobic, transphobic, and biphobic bullying that many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI+) students experience.
This was marked in a number of ways during the week ending, on Friday,with a human made up of all year groups wearing a color of the Stand up flag!
Thankyou and well done to all students who helped and particular thanks to our caretaker,Anthony ,whose creative and artistic abilities were once again on display!
Wellbeing Ambassador Programme
Our students were delighted to be asked to present their Wellbeing Ambassador Programme to the Loreto SC community in Stillorgan on Wednesday,23rd October. The girls shared details of how the Ambassador Programme came about, the first Wellbeing Week at Loreto Clonmel and the creation of their ‘Less Stress, More Success’ exam leaflet.
Congratulations to each of our Student Council representatives and Wellbeing Ambassadors on a wonderful presentation!
