Remember – you’re the Class of 2020
Don’t just remember the last nine weeks,
When we all turned into technological geeks,
Where we could only e-mail, OneNote or chat on Teams,
And it was my only way of telling you to hold onto your dreams.
Remember the times we learned in class,
Or when we went to Rowe Street or Clonard for mass,
Remember the shows, the matches, the sports days, the trips,
And how I always tried my best to give you advice and tips.
You got to enjoy the 150th celebration,
And experience the move to our beautiful new location,
You were encouraged Mary Ward’s values to employ,
Truth, Freedom, Justice, Sincerity and Joy.
The academic subjects are full of benefits,
But they are nothing without emotional intelligence,
I want you to get a job where you’ll be brilliant,
But mostly I want you to be happy… and resilient!!
The last nine weeks may stick in your mind,
But I hope that in the future you will find….
That your Loreto journey was much far longer
And the last nine weeks only made you stronger!!
If you can get through that, you can get through plenty,
Because you are the amazing Class of…. 2020!!!
From Your Guidance Counsellor – Lorraine Kelly
