The BOM has established a Students’ Council in fulfilment of section 27 of the Education Act, 1998.
The Board acknowledges the valuable contribution that students can make to the effectiveness of their school and considers their meaningful involvement in the operation of the school to be a valuable part of their education process. A financial grant is made available to the Students’ Council by the BOM each year to help cover its expenses.
The general objectives of the Students’ Council are:
- To enhance communication between students, management, staff and parents
- To promote an environment conducive to educational and personal development
- To promote friendship and respect among students

- To assist with policy development by its representation on the School Planning Group Sub-Committee
- To represent the views of students on matters of concern to them
Membership of the Students’ Council will be as follows:
- Two elected representatives from each of the six year groups in the school
- Head Girls (ex-officio member)
The Students’ Council operates in accordance with its constitution for conducting its meetings and business. This constitution is included in Appendix 5.

Joined by our visiting students and teachers from Germany and Spain, Loreto students and staff attended the start of year mass in Rowe Street Church last Tuesday afternoon.
Celebrated by our chaplain, Fr. Jim Fegan, the mass was adorned by beautiful singing, inspirational readings and an uplifting and challenging homily delivered by Ms. O’ Reilly, Deputy Principal. The tone was set early on by the two Head Girls, Sally Shortle and Carla Fusciardi Wallace, who reflected with some good humour on the challenges facing us as we prepare to move to our new school building in November.
