Board of Management
There were two nominations for the two positions of parent representatives on the new Board of Management that takes up its three year term of office on 15 October 2016.
Accordingly, outgoing representatives Barbara Foley and Patrick Clancy are returned unopposed.
Next week we will welcome 58 students and four teachers from our twin school in Villingen, south west Germany who will be with us until 21 September.
During the week they will join us for timetabled classes, will join in the 150th anniversary celebrations and will also undertake trips to local historical sites and Dublin.
The school is most appreciative of the detailed planning that the German Department in Loreto, as well as the teachers from Villingen, put into this annual event.
