23/03/2018 TRÓCAIRE UPDATE

With the last full week of Lent at an end, the Loreto Trócaire fundraising campaign has been gathering pace, with numerous activities taking place, especially during Friday morning.  Among the many events taking place, Mrs McCloskey’s Year 12 form class had a Smartie Challenge, which proved very popular and successful.

Meanwhile, the members of the Justice League organised an event on Friday morning in the Sports Hall, with Mrs Loughrey’s 8F and Mrs McCool’s 9C form classes.  The aim was to capture this year’s Trócaire theme of ‘Until Love Conquers Fear’: this was done by staging a blindfolded obstacle course.  The Year 8 and 9 students were paired up into teams, and they had to support and guide each other over the course, in the hope that their fear of it would be conquered by the support given.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable activity and the students thoroughly embraced the event.  The winners were Sarah Jane McKinley 8F, Natalia Jablonowka 8F and Orna Taylor 9C.  Mrs McCool paid tribute to the members of the Justice League, saying that without their hard work the event would have been impossible.
