22/11/2013 LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS RAISE ACTION MS FUNDS

A cheque for £3417.03 was presented to Moira McIvor of Action MS on behalf of Loreto College Coleraine on 22nd November 2013. This money was raised earlier in the Autumn Term, when all Year 8 and Year 13 students from Loreto College took part in a sponsored walk at Mountsandel Forest, before the Halloween break.

The Sponsored Walk was part of an ongoing programme in Loreto College through which all Year 8 students have a mentor in Year 13, who acts as a friendly contact in the senior school as the new students become accustomed to life at grammar school.  The Year 8s and Year 13s enjoyed their walk as a ‘getting to know you’ activity, as well as having the joint objective of raising money.

Mrs Lorraine McCool, Social Justice Co-ordinator at Loreto College, paid tribute to the students of both year groups, who between them raised an impressive total of £3417.03 for Action MS.

The Gold Award fund-raisers will attend an Action MS Luncheon in Belfast next term, which rewards Northern Ireland’s top fund-raising schools.  The students are: Callum Rainey (who raised £411.70), Kate Doherty (who raised £100.05), Niamh Granleese (who raised  £202.00), Holly Boyd  (who raised  £101.50), Jack McNicholl  (who raised  £101.60) and Callum McAuley-Bamford (who raised £100.00).  A number of other students, each of whom had raised over £100, were presented with Silver Awards for their fund-raising efforts. 

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, congratulated all the students for their generosity and concern for others, as well as thanking Mrs Lorraine McCool for co-ordinating the fund-raising element of the event, and Vice Principal Mrs Belinda Toner, and teachers Mrs Schira McGoldrick (Head of Year 13) and Mr Liam Shaw (Head of Year 8) for enthusing the students in the forging of positive relationships as the school year progresses.
