First Year Dalkey Spirit Festival (June 21st - 25th 2021)


Dear Parents,

We are acutely aware of the impact of the last 14 months on our children. While it has been difficult for all , most have demonstrated a remarkable resilience while for some the threat of illness, the dynamics of friendships in a Covid world and the transition to secondary school have proved more difficult.

We had hoped to support the social development of our First Years by organising an optional week of activities during the summer but had to cancel the plan due to building works scheduled here in late June. These works are now slightly delayed and we are proposing to offer an opportunity for First Years from Loreto to enjoy a week of activities from June 21st – June 25th. The cost will be partially subsidised by the Board of Management with the remaining portion of the fee determined by the numbers enrolled. The programme will be co-ordinated by Ms. Molly Lamb and supported by staff and senior students and will have activities for all interest groups.

I would hope that a sufficient number of First years will be interested to make the project viable. Please express interest by email to Róisín in the main office: by Thursday June 3rd.

Ms Lamb and her team will then organise and cost the programme to cater for the numbers enrolled.

Further information will be forwarded to those expressing an interest next week and formal registration will then take place.

With kinds regards

Robert Dunne
