No more single use plastics!
Well done to the Greenschools Committee who have worked diligently to eliminate single use plastics within our school. When students come back to school after February mid-term they will be required to have a resusable water bottle with their name clearly labelled on it. This will help eliminate single use plastics within our school which is also now government policy.
Well done girls!

Well done girls…..they tasted as good as they looked!
Thirty first year students accompanied by Ms Delaney, Ms Kennedy, Enya and Colette, travelled to the Cresent College Comprehension and Catholic Institute Limerick to compete in the North Munster Blitz. We escaped the downpours in Clonmel to enjoy the blue skies and sunny spells of Limerick. Our enthusiastic hockey players have been training hard all year and the results were clear. All three teams made it into the Cup and Plate semi-finals. Unfortunately, our division 2 team lost out in the final to the Division 1 home team of Cresent College. Well done to all involved on the day.

Senior Loreto Mace Debates
On 18th January,we had the pleasure of hosting the Senior Loreto Mace Debates.Ten Loreto schools from all over the country started their day extremely early and travelled to Clonmel to take part in this competition.
The first round’s motion was ‘This House would arm teachers in the US’,the second round’s motion was ‘This House regrets Irelands obsession with getting a University education’,and the final unprepared round’s motion was ‘This House would eradicate all social media’
Four teams from our school entered the competition,
Bríd Moynihan & Sinéad Bond
Leah Cullinan & Mia Duggan
Niamh Laste & Emma Reilly
Mary O’Keefe & Jane Murphy
All of our debaters represented our school incredibly well with some outstanding performances,but it was Bríd and Sinéad with their innovative ideas,cut throat refutation and natural confidence who qualified for the final!
A huge ‘Thankyou’ to all TY and 2nd Year students who acted as chairpersons,timekeepers and helpers on the day.Without your willingness and positive attitude,we could not have hosted this event.
Congratulations to all involved!
Congratulations to Ms Kennedy and the Senior basketball team on winning the Tipperary Knights Blitz in Thurles on 11th January…….well done everyone!
