Launch of new Loreto App
We were delighted this week to launch our new Loreto App.
The APP can be downloaded from the APP Store or the Google Play Store. Simply type in “Loreto Secondary School Wexford”, search and then install.
This will be a great way for the full school community to stay in touch with our latest news, letters to families, photo gallery and much more.
I hope you get good use from the App. Remember to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any school news, photos or articles for publication.
Inclusion Committee – report by Ms. M. Jordan
‘Let your voice be heard’
Normally around this time of year plans are well underway for our annual Multicultural Week.
Multicultural Week has been postponed to February (week beginning Monday 22nd) in the hope that we can celebrate in our usual colourful and vibrant fashion. In the meantime, we are excited to announce the creation of Loreto’s Inclusion Committee.
Inclusion is about embracing all people regardless of differences. It is about giving equal opportunities and getting rid of discrimination. Inclusion affects all aspects of our lives.
The aim of this Inclusion Committee is to build towards a broader sense of inclusion in our school community through discussion, awareness raising and whole school events such as Multicultural Week and Inclusion Week.
If you are interested in inclusion and would enjoy a forum to express your feelings and opinions in order to effect positive change, please email email@example.com by Monday 9th November.
Presentation of Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement (JCPA) certificates
The school will be very happy to present JCPA certificates to all current TY students on Friday, 6 November in respect of their Junior Cycle that concluded last June.
Although the final written examinations were cancelled due to the Covid-19 measures, the school has now put together a certificate that takes account of students’ academic grades awarded by teachers last May, their completed CBAs and also any other areas of learning in which they were involved through their three junior cycle years.
It is hoped that students will be proud of these certificates and will cherish them as a record of the successful completion of their Junior Cycle education in Loreto, Wexford.
We wish to thank Mr. McGinnity and Ms. M. Jordan for the considerable amount of work that they put in to compile these certificates.
