Three of our Fifth year students, Sorcha Finan, Sana Cheema and Eimear Rudden, took part recently in the Model United Nations competition in Dublin Castle. This event is run by the European Commission and they completed against teams from 27 other schools from around the country. Their allocated country was Austria so they were arguing the Austrian position in simulation of a United Nations debate. The girls represented Austria and Loreto College Cavan very well. Their experience in the European Youth Parliament showed. All three have qualified for National finals of EYP and Sorcha took part in an international session of EYP earlier this year. Congratulations to the girls.

On Tuesday March 12th members of the Cavan Cross Cultural Community visited Loreto College Cavan. The event was organised as part of the Erasmus+ project in which our TY students are participating this year and also to coincide with the school's Intercultural Week.The speakers each gave accounts of their personal experiences both before leaving their home countries and then on arrival in Ireland. It was most informative for our students to hear how different life can be for others and the girls were very receptive of the speakers. It was a very enjoyable and educational experience for all involved.
