A year in the life of Loreto

We are delighted to announce a collage of the winning entries for our ‘A Year In The Life Of Loreto’ photograph exhibition.
We would like to sincerely thank our entire Loreto Community for their enthusiasm, creativity and sense of fun for this wonderful project. We think it shows a great flavour of how our schools, students, teachers and community dealt with the extraordinary year of Covid.
We hope you can relax, unwind and enjoy. Please feel free to share the links below with your own local community of parents, guardians and everyone who plays an important role in the education of our students.
Warm regards

About Loreto Secondary School, Bray 

The empowerment of women has been the hallmark of Loreto schools down through the years and this has been a driving force behind many of the initiatives undertaken in the school. Our dedicated staff understand that the world has still a long way to go before women can say that they are universally respected and appreciated. Unfortunately the remnants of a patriarchal society are still too evident in the world today.

It is sobering to think that over 400 years ago Mary Ward, foundress of the Loreto Sisters, was imprisoned and declared a heretic for daring to suggest that women could have their own order independent of direct male supervision and that “women in time to come would do much”. Her legacy, alive in Loreto Bray, provides the inspiration to our staff to encourage all students, no matter what their academic ability, to strive for excellence and to give of their best in everything they do. This stands in stark contrast to the narrow focus of the school league tables, so popular with certain elements in the media.

The fact that our students gain the highest academic results while remaining involved in extra-curricular activities gives lie to the dangerous view that one must concentrate exclusively on the academic to get high points. Indeed the excellent Leaving and Junior Certificate results of recent years illustrate how academic excellence and holistic education are all part of the same endeavour.
