Loreto Abbey, Dalkey is a Catholic, fee paying secondary school for girls located overlooking the sea at Dalkey, south Co Dublin. Teachers and staff know each girl individually and strive to provide each one with a rounded education . Students are provided with a wide range of curricular and co-curricular choices so each girl has the opportunity to achieve her potential and to enjoy being at school.

Congratulations to all involved in organising the 'Let's Get Quizzical' night in aid of the Syrian refugee fund. The group raised in excess of 600 euro.

1st Year Parents iPad Post-Deployment Evening with Wriggle

Wriggle will be hosting a Post-Deployment iPad evening for the Parents/Guardians of 1st Year students using iPads on Wednesday 14th of October at 7.45pm in the Lecture Theatre.

1st Year Parents/Guardians are asked to bring their daughter’s iPad with them and to make sure that they have record of the 4-digit passcode and Apple ID password with them (available on the Wriggle Deployment Sheet).

The purpose of this evening is for Parents/Guardians to understand how to monitor and check how their daughter is using their iPad, how to set additional restrictions (if required) and to ensure safe and appropriate use of the device.

Students should not attend this event and they will be excused from homework for that night as Parents/Guardians will have their iPads.

The duration of the meeting will be approximately forty-five minutes to an hour.

We look forward to seeing you on the night.

I am appealing to all parents/guardians to drop off/pick up students at the Harbour Road corner rather than drive into the school grounds or to the car park at the Sports Hall.  A serious health and safety problem is developing for pedestrians and staff who must access the school buildings on a narrow route.


Kind regards,

Robert Dunne,
