Loretto RC swimmers got off to a flying at the small schools competition on Friday 26th January in Prestonpans! First heat and a first place in the heat for Scott, then kicking off from the wall and cruising past a few competitors on the way was Owen, both sprinting a 25m freestyle.
Loretto girls turned it up a notch with Kara showing splendid form and technique during her breaststroke heat and Grace coming a fabulous… first against some great swimmers from other schools in freestyle and backstroke. Ashleigh showed some great stamina and drive, making the other girls in her heat work hard when she completed her breaststroke. The other fabulous Kara, streamlined her way to place in her backstroke, taking a beautiful start and finish for the school.
Another backstroker who certainly wasn’t at the back of the pool was Luc who placed second in his heat! Logan kept the ball rolling with an exciting sprint in his breastroke. The event got really exciting with some of the mums even bringing out the big gladiator thumb poolside to cheer on our relay team who led the way in each split and came first for Loretto.
Importantly the group showed a great team spirit and support to each Other, as well as friends from other teams. They have represented our school and wider community very well.
A special congratulations to our own Grace who represented our school at the Scottish schools final in East Kilbride!
Congratulations Loretto swim team 2018!

A Carbon Fast for Lent 2017
In our parish this Lent join us in a Fast with a difference.
Every year the Church encourages us to fast as part of our Lenten observances. This year we invite you to fast in an additional way, to consider reducing your carbon (or energy) consumption, to help us be more aware of how our consumption can impact negatively on our planet and all who live on it.
