Members of the First and Second XI hockey teams from Loreto College Coleraine, accompanied by Head of PE Mrs M McCullough and PE teacher Ms J Wilson set off for Holland this week for a week-long hockey tour.

During their week in Holland, the students will enjoy first class top-quality coaching with NGB qualified coaches, as well as a focus on GCSE PE curriculum elements – an academic subject in which many of the girls on the tour have already excelled, or hope to excel this year.

Following their coaching sessions, the students will have the opportunity to take part in some challenging hockey matches against Dutch opposition. With hockey being one of Holland’s national sports, the Loreto students will have exciting opportunities to be coached and compete at a high level, as well as to enjoy top-class facilities and hospitality.

Based in the coastal town of Noordwijk, the students will also have the chance of enjoying many leisure and cultural activities – not to mention a day at the famous Six Flags theme park and some retail therapy. Leaving for Holland on Monday 18th October, the students and teachers have a tremendous week of sporting and cultural opportunity ahead.
