The annual Open Day was held at Loreto College on the morning of Saturday 8th January 2005, drawing a large number of prospective students and their parents from throughout the College’s extensive catchment area.

During the course of the morning, 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 Senior Choir 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 morning was a visit to the College’s state of the art Sports Hall and Technology Suite. Others were delighted by the cookery display by the Livestock and Meat Commission, hosted by the College’s Home Economics department in the school canteen, the Café Lorette.

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 Class of 2005 after the “Eleven Plus” results are published.
