A2 Psychologists visit to San Francisco

ImageImageStudent Katie Calderbank writes:

The A2 trip to San Francisco with Psychology was by far one of the most remarkable experiences of my entire college life, and something I would undoubtedly recommend to other students, if given the opportunity to go. The trip was not only beneficial academically, but also provided each of us with some necessary life skills, such as travelling and cooperating with people we weren't familiar with, and navigating around a huge city with independence.

CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young)

ImageImageCRY is a national organisation which aims to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death by working with cardiologists and family doctors to establish good practice and appropriate screening facilities to promote and protect the cardiac health of our young. It is an organisation with which Loreto has particular links, as we lost one of our students, Josh Merrick, to this condition in 2013.

A2 History trip to Berlin

The city of Berlin said ‘Wilkommen’ to forty one A2 History students as part of a trip based around our studies of the Cold War.

The first jam-packed day kicked off with a guided walking tour of Berlin, which incorporated the famous Brandenburg Gate, the Gendarmenmarkt, Unter den Linden and The Berlin Cathedral - as well as the cultural landmark that was the hotel from which Michael Jackson dangled his baby back in 2002! We then headed off to ‘The Story of Berlin’ museum, a highlight being its underground nuclear bunker, which stood as a chilling reminder of the paranoia bred by the Cold War and the catastrophic impact it could have had - in fact, scarily enough, the bunker is still fit for use today, should the need arise. The day was then rounded off by a moonlit tour around the Reichstag, Berlin’s (much more stylish) answer to the House of Commons, designed by Manchester’s very own Norman Foster; his architectural feats providing amazing views of the city, but a touch of vertigo for those of a delicate disposition!

Loreto hosts live politics forum

ImageImageThe college had an early taste of the excitement generated by the most eagerly anticipated general election for many a year when we hosted a debate under the banner title of ‘Who cares about politics?’ Organised by S4SNextGen (Speakers For Schools), which has a remit to engage young people in the political discourse, the debate was streamed ‘live’ to schools and colleges throughout the country.
