The annual Open Evenings were held at Loreto College on Wednesday and Thursday, 7th and 8th January 2003, drawing a large number of prospective students and their parents from throughout the College’s extensive catchment area.

During both evenings, Primary 7 students and their parents, as well as prospective sixth formers, were given the opportunity to explore the school, benefiting from the experience of members of the teaching staff and a number of current Loreto students – from both Junior and Senior forms – in order to form an accurate picture of what life as a Loreto student entails. Visitors to the College were treated to a variety of stimulating displays, from performances by the traditional Irish group and displays of talent by the members of the Drama Club to “hands-on” contact in Computer Studies, Science and Technology.

For some the highlight of the evening was a visit to the College’s state of the art Sports Hall and Technology Suite. Others were delighted by the Mexican themed evening hosted by the Home Economics Department, where they were able to sample a range of dishes prepared by students.

With all academic departments and many extra-curricular activities represented during both Open Evenings, the event was a very successful one, building on the College’s links with the local community and encouraging many young people to apply for a place in the Class of 2004 after the “Eleven Plus” results are published.
