On September 24th 2012 the Loreto College Cavann Student Council, along with our liason teacher Mrs. Cassidy, travelled to the Croke Park Conference Centre in Dublin for a Loreto Schools Student Councils seminar. Here the Head Girl Laura O’Connor (Chariperson), Deputy Head Girl Emma Louise Brady (Secretary), Holly Brennan (6th year rep and PRO), Aine Phair (6th year rep and PRO), Leanne Sheridan and Sarah Mc Donald (5th year), Lisa Smith (TY), Malíosa McKeon and Chloé Micallef (3rd year), Abikye Abuguise and Donna Garvey (2nd year) met with many different student councils from Loreto Schools.
We reached the conference centre at 9:00a.m. where tea and coffee were served. Firstly we were separated into different tables with students from different schools inc. Foxrock, Crumlin, Bray, Swords and Donegal. We were taught the SC roles by the conference facilitators Blathnaidh Colhoun and Máirín O’Toole. Next we talked to the people at our table about the different activities we do in our schools to help both students and local charities. We discussed topics including bullying, fundraising and meetings. At the end of the day, we made an action plan for the rest of the year.
A wonderful day was has by all. Here we are pictured outside Croke Park.
