Students’ Council Report – by Kate Furlong and Carla Fusciardi Wallace
The new school year is well underway and the Students’ Council for 2017/18 has been meeting and preparing for the year’s activities. This year the Students’ Council comprises of two elected representatives from each year group, along with five sixth year students.
There are many upcoming events to look forward to. Random Acts of Kindness Week will take place from 20 to 24 November. The Students’ Council also looks forward to assisting with the Loreto and St Peter’s College production of ‘West Side Story’.
On Tuesday, 24 October two of our first years and two of our third years travelled with Ms.Byrne to Leopardstown for the annual ‘Seminar for Students’ Councils in Loreto Post Primary Schools’. They found this very helpful and motivating.
The Students’ Council will be maintaining the management of the school Twitter account @studentcoloret1. The Twitter feed will include updates on various school activities such as sporting events, achievements and student contributions.
We would like to encourage all students to make suggestions about topics for discussion, activities or events so please feel free to let us know your thoughts. The council is a well-respected body within the school community; every student deserves for their opinion to be heard and the council provides an excellent platform to do so. We are very much looking forward to what this year has in store.
Keep an eye out on our noticeboard for upcoming events and follow us on Twitter @studentcoloret1.
Match report of the u16 A Leinster schools football match between Loreto and Coláiste Íosagáin
By Ciara Banville and Caitlin Nash
The u16 A footballers were out in action on Thursday, 19 October in Dublin. It was a game of two halves as conditions in Dublin were far from ideal and played a big role in deciding the final score.
Loreto had the wind in their backs in the first half but it was Coláiste Íosagáin who got the first score in the 7th minute. Loreto hit back straight away with a goal by Mollie Bates followed by two points by Liadh Dwyer. There was great link up play between centre back Aoife O’Connor, Liadh Dwyer and Mollie Bates was always there to finish. Alanna Fuscardi Wallace worked hard in full back also getting the chance to save a goal. Both Kathlynn Gabbett Kehoe and Bates both rattled the net before the half time whistle. Loreto were on top at half time with a scoreline of 5-5 to 2-2.
The second half was completely different with Loreto fighting hard to get the better of the wind and the rain that was setting in. It was Coláiste Íosagáin who ruled this half scoring 2-8 but this didn’t stop Loreto fighting until the very end battling their hardest to keep Coláiste Íosagáin from getting ahead. Boxwell’s goal proved to be the winner in the end, the only score from Loreto in the second half. Loreto scrapped by in the end gaining victory by a point. Full time score: Loreto 6-5, Coláiste Íosagáin 4-10.
