A Message From Our Head Girls

On behalf of the Senior Leadership Team 2023-2024, we would like to warmly welcome you to our school website. Our website will give you an insight into the school life of students and staff in Loreto Letterkenny, and exhibit all that our wonderful school has to offer.

The community here in Loreto Letterkenny is a testament to the imperative role that the Loreto Ethos holds in our daily school life. We believe our ethos manifests in many aspects of school life whether that be academically or through extra-curricular activities. The kindness and support of both teachers and students alike creates a welcoming, caring and respectful environment. As is the case for each and every student, I am surrounded by people who help me to flourish into the best version of me!

This positive environment promotes the development of the ‘whole person’ ensuring that when we leave Loreto as young adults, we are equipped with values and skills that will lead us far in life. It has been an experience that has enabled us to acquire an unwavering sense of our identity and our aspirations and has simultaneously helped us gain the ambition and attributes that each of us will utilise to achieve our goals. My own time in Loreto has been filled with a great mix of laughter, fun and hard work and I know that I will recall my days here among the best in my life.

Our school’s theme for this year of ‘Empowerment’, is a constant reminder to support each other and embrace our strengths. In Loreto Letterkenny, we do our utmost to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and secure in our school.
I am truly grateful to be the Head Girl for this year. I will do my best to ensure that every student will have the enriching, invaluable experience in Loreto Letterkenny that I am so fortunate to have had.

Our school’s theme for this year of ‘Live for the moment’, is a constant reminder to enjoy the now, and to be grateful for everything that we are so blessed to have. In Loreto Letterkenny, we do our utmost to cherish every minute, from the unexplainably funny moments to those Monday mornings!  

I am truly grateful to be the Head Girl for this year. I will do my best to ensure that every student will have the enriching, invaluable experience in Loreto Letterkenny that I am so fortunate to have had.

Our school appeals to a diverse range of talents and inclusively strives to nurture the unique gifts of every individual and encourages students to flourish by getting involved in things they feel passionate about. 

By granting us many opportunities to get involved in school life outside the classroom, our dedicated staff are extremely supportive in helping our students realise and unlock their full potential.

The past five years I have experienced have been truly enriched by the people and community of Loreto. Friends, classmates, teachers and others who are part of our school community all contribute to making the most memorable days.

Deputy Head Girl – Leah Mullen

It is an honour and privilege to have been appointed deputy head girl. In my role I hope to make a meaningful and positive impact within our school, as it has given so much to me and many others over the years. The Senior Leadership Team anticipates the upcoming academic year and we aim to lead and represent our school with integrity and we hope to make our last year in Loreto Letterkenny a memorable experience! Our six years in Loreto Letterkenny will inevitably come to a close and each of us will leave with our own unique vision. However we believe that we will forever be united and connected by our shared experiences and memories of Loreto Letterkenny.
