Congratulations to Una Stephens (4th Year) who, representing her team St. Vincent’s Water Polo Club, won the National Cup in Lisburn at the weekend.  She has now been invited to join the St. Vincent’s Senior Women’s team to play in a competition in Budapest in March.

Over one hundred delegates from schools in Leinster spent the weekend in Loreto Abbey at a conference of the European Youth Parliament.  The conference was composed of three distinct stages:  Teambuilding, Committee Work and General Assembly.

We were represented by Eve McCarthy, Molly Walker, Muirinn Daly, Jenna Smyth and Alice Fanning (all 4th Years) and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Congratulations to our Senior A Basketball team which defeated Loreto Beaufort 50-32 in the Loreto Senior A Final.
