11/02/2011 STUDENTS’ SPONSORED SPELL RAISES FUNDS FOR LORETO MISSIONS

The Year Eight pupils of Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, have once again proven their selflessness and generosity towards others. With gusto and enthusiasm, they took part in the annual Year Eight Sponsored Spell on Friday 28th January.

In all, £1602.32 was raised: an impressive sum which will be used by the Loreto Missions across the world to improve standards of living and education.

Fifteen pupils achieved full marks and were awarded prizes accordingly; they were Niamh Carlin, Sarah Purvis, Aidan O’Boyle, Joel Dinsmore, Conor Craig, Eimear Hegarty, Kevin Eakin, Maria McLarnon, Eimear Carey, Oran Bradley, Emily Cameron Mollie Maguire, Aoife Keane, Niamh McIlvenny and Cain McKendry. Also, seven pupils were awarded prizes for being the top fund-raisers in the year group; between them they raised a fantastic sum of £300. They were Cathaoir Mc Kay, Aidan O’ Boyle, Caríosa O’ Harte, Erin Rose Ní Shandair, Maria McLarnon, Maggie McBride and Emmett Brolly.

Bean Uí Mhaoláin, who facilitated the Sponsored Spell, paid tribute to the tremendous efforts of all Year Eight pupils and form teachers involved. Mrs C Little, Head of English, added that initiative had been an excellent opportunity to enhance students’ literacy while working to help others, and thanked all the members of the English department who had enthused the students so much about the activity, as well as administering the test itself.
