Beat FM: Wednesday Warrior
As diversity month continues on Beat FM, here in Loreto we are immensely proud to have a second Loreto girl take centre stage to share her story on the radio station. Earlier this month Noon Abubakar, who is currently in 6th year, spoke about her experiences and this week former head girl Mindulee Seneviratne spoke about her life in Ireland after moving from Sri Lanka with her family.
Mindulee explained her dream to become ‘the first cultural head girl that the school had ever appointed’ and how realising this dream was hugely significant for all the students in our school especially those who come from different cultures. Mindulee was certainly a wonderful role model as head girl for the entire student body contributing to all aspects of school life, especially Multicultural Week, an event that she played a key role in organisnig. Mindulee remarked that she ‘was extremely impressed at the amount of support we had received from the school and the publicity we got from the public and radio’ during Multicultural Week.
It is clear from Mindulee’s articulate and insightful interview that the spirit of Mary Ward is alive and well!
