John Paul 11 Award Ceremony – report by Ms. L. Jordan
On Friday, 9 October, 17 students received awards for their work last year as part of the John Paul II Committee. Ms. L. Jordan (John Paul II Facilitator) and Colette O’ Doherty (Ferns Diocesan Advisor) presented the girls with their awards.
The Pope John Paul II Award is a faith achievement award for young people between the age of 16 and 18. The Award enables participants to take an active part in the life of their Church and in the life of their community and society. These students have volunteered in their local parishes and communities in many different ways such as walking the elderly to mass, fundraising for different charities, reading/singing at mass and taking active roles on committees such as the Green School Committee and Paired Reading Committee.
Nadine Goodison and Grace Rossiter achieved a Papal Cross Award for their project which was linked to the charity ‘Mary’s Meals’ and also for work in their local communities.
Congratulations to all of the students involved and best of luck to the 4th years and 5th years who are joining the group this year.
- We are delighted to report that work on the re-instatement of the hockey pitch has been completed and that this superb facility will be ready for use by Loreto students and staff from today. This means that, at long last, all building work associated with our new school has been fully completed. We can all now enjoy the full range of spacious and superb facilities that are on our doorstep, along with the adjoining Min Ryan Park. A good week for Loreto!
