Due to the crazy weather, we are postponing our AGM until Thursday 27th September. Please do still try to come along next week.
It’s the Loretto Parent Partnership AGM on Wednesday 19th September. Please try to come along. It’s a great opportunity to have your say in how our school is run, and a chance to meet other parents with a common interest. Some of our parent members are stepping down from their roles as their children have left Loretto, and we do need to have a certain number of parents in order to function. All welcome! Starts at 6.30pm
We have received an amber weather warning for Wednesday 19th September. Strong winds are forecast with a possibility of flying debris from trees and buildings. The walking visits to the library are postponed. We will keep an eye in school too during break and lunchtime and may remain indoors .
At home-you might like to secure outdoor toys and garden furniture. Stay safe.
Just a reminder to all, that school and nursery are closed Friday 14th September and Monday 17th September. Remember the school photographer will be coming in on Tuesday 18th September to take individual and sibling photos. Enjoy the holiday!

Come and join us in your child’s class and see how to help with developing handwriting. Remember the old blackboards and chalk? Try the new Interactive Whiteboard or mini whiteboards! We are now using a cursive script. Learn how to form your letters and why it helps learning. Loopy Loretto fun Friday 7th September 11am and coffee afterwards till pick up time.
Our traditional Welcome Evening is on Monday 10th September at 7pm. Teachers will give a short informal talk-letting you know the plans for the year-both school and class. Boys and girls bring your families along to see your class, meet your teacher and show them your first work this year. Teachers will repeat their input at 7.20pm for anyone who needs to visit more than one class.
We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow Wednesday 15th August at the usual start time of 8.50am.
We are especially looking forward to welcoming ALL P1 pupils. Mrs MacDonald has been getting your new classroom ready for you to play.Our new P7s will, of course, be on hand at break as your buddies to help settle you in.
Our new interim teacher for P5, Mr Wilson, is looking forward to meeting his new class in Loretto. A warm welcome to him too.
We have some super new electrics, ceilings, lighting and heating in phase one of the works. What a difference it has made!
A special thanks to Mr Bonnar and Alex who have worked unbelievably hard to get the school back to being ready for us.
All pupils are in school classes all day from today.
I would like to thank Mrs McBean, all the staff, children and parents for their kind words, gifts and cards. I have loved teaching at Loretto for the last 24 years and I will miss all the fun and enjoyment that it has given me. Everyone was so kind to me when I left last week and I take all your good wishes with me. It’s been a privilege to help and support the children with their learning and their life experiences. I do plan to relax for a bit but I will stay in touch and look forward to hearing about the continued successes @ Loretto R.C. Mrs Ramage x
