Macmillan Coffee Morning 29th September

As you know our Macmillan Coffee Morning is being held on 29th September 2017 at 11:00-12:00 in the school dinner hall. This is being hosted by the children of P6.

We wish to extend an invite to all parents and carers of children in P5-P7. Unfortunately we cannot host all parents and carers at this event due to limited capacity of the hall.

We would like to thank you for your offer of cakes for the event. If you are contributing cakes, please bring them to the school dinner hall from 08:30.

We have not had many offers of adult volunteers to help to set up and to serve teas and coffees. If you have any free time, we would really appreciate any offer of help!

Loretto Golf Academy

Do we have any budding golfers at Loretto RC? We have been invited by Loretto School to attend a Golf Event. There will be an U9 and an U11 event – you are not required to have a handicap. So if your child plays golf could you please hand their name into the school office. We are required to enter by Friday 8th September. Why not have a go?

Sports Day

Loretto will hold it Sports Day on Friday 16th June. The children will compete in Houses to earn points for both their House and themselves. These points will be added to the House Points already earned throughout the year. The Winning House and the Sports Champions will be announced at our Celebration of Achievement at the end of term. This year there will be a few changes to our usual format as we plan to have more races. Unfortunately, there will not be time for adult races. The children will be given House badges but can wear House colours if they wish. We are still in need of parent helpers, so if you can help, please give your name to the school office. We still require ten adult helpers. All helpers should meet with Mrs Ramage on the football pitch at 9am on Friday. Thank you for your support.

Loretto Medal Winners

On a very hot Thursday, almost 20 children from Loretto represented the school at an Athletics Comp @ Meadowmill. Conditions were unusual for an outdoor sports event in Scotland! Not what we are used to. Fortunately, we had come well prepared with caps, sunscreen and water and luckily there was also sunscreen and water provided. Our team did their very best and encouraged each other to run fast, throw far and jump high. It was a great team effort and our relay teams did very well. Loretto managed to be amongst the medal winners. We won both the P6 girls High Jump and the P6 girls 160m. Thanks to Mrs Sellwood who prepared the pupils. The girls will receive their medals at a whole school assembly. Well Done.
