On the 25th of April, Loreto College Cavan was transformed into a sea of colour as the students and teachers dressed in the Rumbek colours. Rumbek Day was organised by the Student Council and aimed to raise much needed funds for Loreto Rumbek. The students were asked to donate €2 and wear Rumbek colours for the day. There was also prizes for the best dressed in each year. The school was decorated in Rumbek colours and everyone got into the spirit of the day. Bunting, wristbands and face paint all helped to create a fun atmosphere and the day was enjoyed by all. In total €1,300 was raised for Loreto Rumbek and we know it is greatly appreciated. We recently received photos from Loreto Rumbek that highlight how our donations help the development of Loreto Rumbek. Below are some of the photos of Rumbek Day.  We know that our donations greatly help the development of Loreto Rumbek and we hope to post some photos of  Loreto Rumbek soon.  Thank you to the whole school community for making this event a huge success.
