Soccer in Loreto
History was made on Tuesday, 9 May when the first ever soccer team to represent Loreto took to the field. Guided by Mr. Usher, Mr. Lyons and Ms. Sweetman, the team of first years put in superb performances to beat 3 fellow Loreto schools to make the final where they lost out on a 2-0 scoreline to Loreto, Foxrock. Congratulations to all members of the squad on a successful debut!
The final meeting of the Parents’ Council for the 2022/23 school year took place on Monday, 8 May. We thank all members for their regular attendance, support and dedication to the school.

This was delivered by staff from the Order of Malta and is a great asset to all students.
