Loreto Community School, Milford



Prefects are our most senior school ambassadors. There are 12 Sixth Year Students who are elected by their peers and teachers annually to represent the school. Pictured above are the Prefects for the school year 2020-21.

At Loreto Community School, the role of a prefect involves;

-Acting as mentors to students in the school, particularly to first year students and your assigned base classes.

-Linking in with and supporting such base classes/students on a regular basis.

-Familiarising yourself with the School’s ethos and Code of Behaviour.

-Adhering to the school rules and regulations during school hours and on any school activity such as outings, tours, etc.

-Modelling good behaviours that align with school’s ethos and Code of Behaviour. This applies to proper social media etiquette as many students may see you as a role model online also.

-Collaborating with fellow prefects and other groups within the school community e.g. the Student Council, the Green School Committee, etc. Working well as part of a team is vital to ensure shared goals are met.

-Getting involved with the running of the school by providing feedback and suggestions to perhaps improve school life, thus bridging the gap between students, teachers and principals.

-Organising events such as fundraising activities or activities that promote student well-being.

-Helping out at events during and after school times. These may include parent-teacher meetings, graduation and awards ceremonies, etc.

A MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD BOY & HEAD GIRL A931251F-3E76-4CA0-B3D3-9D137E25A791.jpeg

On behalf of the prefect team 2020/21 we would like to extend a sincere welcome to our school website. The core values and school ethos at Loreto gives all students the opportunity to reach their full academic potential. Our school is committed to effective learning for all students, while accommodating their needs to develop their creative, practical and sporting capabilities.

At Loreto Community school, we are fortunate to have an extremely welcoming and experienced faculty, who support our students in every way to possible to help them to reach their ambitions and discover other avenues of interest.Furthermore, our school is dedicated to developing students on an individual and collective level by offering a diverse range of clubs, societies and artistic events such as club cainte, GAA teams, football teams, the school choir and the school musical to name a few, as well as offering opportunities for students to project their voice through the student council and LKMUN.

This year spent in school has been like no other, having to distance ourselves from our friends and family members and spending long periods of time away from school. We were lucky enough to have the provisions necessary to carry out online learning which was organised by the school and despite this deeply uncertain time, our teachers have reassured and greatly helped us in preparation for our exams.

We are extremely grateful for our six years spent here at Loreto where a true sense of camaraderie among classmates and teachers has blossomed. As our time here nears to a close, we acknowledge how lucky we are to have attended such a wonderful school which has provided so many memorable moments which we will cherish forever.
