The Loreto Bray Peace & Justice Group seeks to raise awareness of justice issues – both national and international – and to offer students the opportunity to voice their views on these matters and work towards bringing about positive change. The group holds regular lunchtime meetings, invites guest speakers to address the group and undertakes a variety of projects throughout the school year.
In 2010/2011 the Peace & Justice Group are focusing their efforts on raising awareness of the Millennium Development Goals. Each month the group selects one of the MDG’s for discussion. They prepare displays for their Peace & Justice Notice Board. Letter writing campaigns have been undertaken by the group in some instances.
In January of each school year Loreto Bray celebrates Mary Ward Day. The Peace & Justice Group plays a big role in planning the celebrations and in running the events on the day.
New members are always welcome in the Peace & Justice Group.
