Quiz Night

A huge thank you to everyone who attended the first Loretto Quiz Night on Friday 1st April, the first of what we hope will now become an annual event. The night was a complete sell-out and it was fantastic so see such support from teachers, parents, friends and pupils alike. Ticket sales, along with the raffle, teas and coffee and a great game of ‘Heads and Tails’, helped us raise the magnificent sum of £501.70, which will be put towards the school playground fund.

A special well done to the winning team “The Starlets” – consisting of Mrs. Clark, Mrs. Dalglish, Mrs Gaunt, Mrs Gill, Mrs Hill and Miss Wood

The dining hall will be full of things to do and see and gifts to buy, and some amazing prizes to be won in the raffle. The gym will be home to a variety of games and activities for children of all ages, including hook the duck, buzzy hat, face painting, tattoos and the ever popular beat the goalie with lots more besides. Teas and coffees will be availble in the church hall across the road so there really is something for everyone.

We’re still looking for donations for stalls so if you have any quality uniform that is no longer of use to you, quality books, items for the gift stall or bottle tombola, items for hampers or for any Delia Smith’s then home baking for sale on the day then we would love to hear from you.Please support your children and your school and visit the fair this Saturday – we look forward to giving you a big Loretto welcome

Book Fair – The Totals are In !!!

The totals are in and we can confirm that as a result of the support shown by all the children and parents throughout the week of the book fair, we have raised an incredible £913 for the school, out of total sales of over £1600 !!!! The £913 will be used to purchase books for a new school library which is currently being planned. A huge thank you to all the parent helpers who assisted in giving up their free time to run the fair and to the Parent Council for donating £2 for each child to spend at the fair.

A magnificent effort so until the next time – keep on reading !!!!!!!

Star Artists

Congratulations to Ivanna and Nathan from P7 whose winning drawings are to be used as the new logo for the Loretto RC Parent Council and for the front page of the schools annual calendar.

After some excellent entries from all members of the Pupil Council, Father McMullan decided Ivanna’s logo (shown below) best summed up the true meaning behind the Parent Council – namely ‘Parents Helping Children’. The whole Parent Council was delighted with the choice and thought Ivanna worthy of the book token given as the prize – well done.

It was left to members of the Parent Council to decide upon the winning drawing for the front page of the school calendar. Following tradition, all of the pupils within P7 entered a drawing and there were many excellent ones to choose from, but we’re sure you’ll agree that Nathan’s drawing below is again a worthy winner and we hope that Nathan will enjoy spending the voucher he’ll receive from the Parent Council. The calendars will as always be available to order through the school and will also be available for sale at the school Christmas Fair on Saturday 29th November within the school dining hall.
