No, not a new Michael Palin travel programme, or the boast of an international superstar jetting around the world, but, rather, an ingenious way of celebrating the diversity of the Loreto family using something dear to the hearts of most students: food!
Loreto is changing!
From the start of this academic year, Loreto College will be altering the way its tutorial system is structured. The College will be adopting a “Hall System”, with each student being assigned to one of ten Halls at the start of their academic life at Loreto.
Students turned up in their hundreds and the sun (almost) shone as Loreto held its inaugural Freshers’ Fair in September. Coordinated by Ms McDermott, the aim of the Fair was to highlight the numerous extra-curricular opportunities on offer for Loreto students. Filling the Sports Hall, and spilling over into the grounds outside the Chapel, the various stalls and displays demonstrated the range of activities available to our students. From the frivolous Ultimate Frisbee to the reflective Philosophy and Ethics Society, all tastes and interests were catered for. From being accosted by life-size teddy bears one moment, and then being asked the question ‘If God made us, who made God?’ the next, students were able to view the displays in a leisurely fashion. Free samples of food, provided by our onsite catering team, were soon snapped up as the numerous stalls competed for attention and custom, and eager students attempted to win first prize of a digital camera in the tombola.
