08/01/2011 OPEN DAY AT LORETO COLLEGE COLERAINE

The annual Open Day was held at Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, on the morning of Saturday 8th  January 2011, drawing a large number of prospective students and their parents from throughout the College’s extensive catchment area.

Following an address by College Principal Mr Brian Lenehan, 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 the singing ensembles  and displays of talent by a group of Drama students to “hands-on” contact in Computer Studies, Science and Technology.

For some the highlight of the morning was a visit to the College’s state of the art Sports Hall and Technology Suite.  Others were delighted by the cookery demonstration in the College’s Home Economics department – especially as many of the culinary treats on show could be sampled! 

With all academic departments and many extra-curricular activities represented during the Open Day, 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 Year 8 Class of 2011 next month.
