Update on Halloween Fundraiser – report by Ms. Whelan
In the spirit of giving, Loreto staff and students held their annual Trick or Treat Fundraiser on Friday, 23 October.
Students and staff dressed up in their finest Halloween costumes and a great day was had by all. The atmosphere in the school was electric involving costumes of all sorts. We were entertained by witches, clowns, Mario and Luigi, snowmen and many more.
All donations were split between Temple Street Hospital and Wexford Women’s Refuge. The school community donated a substantial €1,455.00 which was shared by these two very deserving charities.
We are very proud of the great effort that was put in by everyone. Let’s break the record in 2021.
Loreto Parents’ Council
The Parents’ Council continue to meet each month, via Microsoft Teams. A Meeting Report, summarising all items discussed at each meeting, is available on this website. At Christmas, members of the Council would normally visit the school to distribute treats to the students and staff. As this is not possible this year, the Council have kindly contributed towards six beautiful hampers, one for each year group in the school. All students will be entered into the draw, due to take place on Monday, 22 December. The school expresses its thanks to all members of the Parents’ Council for their ongoing support and the time taken to prepare the hampers. The next meeting of the Council will take place remotely on Monday, 11 January at 18.30. New members are always welcome to join by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
