Busy Final Day before the Easter Break

Following on from the Le Chéile conference in February word came back to St Louis about plans set there by student reps Ugochi Enyoazu and Orlaith Harrison for the Pay it Forward campaign organised by the Trust each year. Our day started with Random Acts of Kindness from students to other students and teachers. Many girls found notes with positive messages on them in their lockers when they came in this morning and the teachers wer given notes thanking them – and some chocolate eggs to wsweeten the message!  This work was carried out by the Student Council.

Then it was Multicultural Day – no one needed to bring any lunch as there was a wealth of wonderful food available – from Mrs Doyle cups of tea, to Ethiopian coffee, to Somalian samosas, to Nigerian meat pies, to Pakistani pakoras, to good old Tayto sandwiches! Thank you to all our students and their families for sharing their cultures and enjoying a wonderful lunchtime together.

Finally the term ended with a moving and spiritual prayer service in the Chapel Hall.  Organised by Ms Sherry, Ms Killoran and Mrs Drumgoole, there were readings and video clips reminding the school community of the message of Easter.  Music was provided by sixth year students and the school chamber choir and Fr Brian finsihed the service with some prayers for all.

Ms Dolan wished all the St Louis family a happy, Holy and safe Easter break. She thanked God for all the blessings visited on St Louis this year, the building work, the excellent WSE and the work to come in the summer break. She thanked the teachers, the SNAs and all the ancillary staff for their dedication all term. She praised the student body for their diligence and hard work and told how highly the WSE Report spoke of them.

We wish all our St Louis families a lovely break. We look forward to meeting you again at our May Concert, Awards Night and Graduation Mass in the final term.

St Louis Inspection Report January 2019

Le Chéile Conference February 7/8 2019

The Le Chéile Schools Trust now comprises the schools of fourteen religious congregations. The aim of the Trust is to carry on the legal, financial and inspirational role of trusteeship that has, up to now, been done by individual congregations. It carries out the legal and inspirational role of trusteeship . This is a significant development in Irish education as the Catholic Church and the individual religious congregations renew and reformulate their commitment to Irish education.

The main object of Le Chéile is the development of a vision of Catholic education and overseeing its implementation in the Schools, encouraging preservation of key aspects of the evangelical heritage of their founding Congregation and to facilitate the opening of new schools if and where the need arises and resources permit.

In the case of non-denominational schools, the aim is to promote the integration of human and spiritual values that permit Catholic values to develop.

The Congregations are currently responsible for 53 voluntary secondary schools and are trustees in 8 Community Schools.

This week the tenth annual Conference takes place in Athlone. The Principal, Deputy Principal and two Fifth Year students, Ugochi Enyoazu and Orlaith Harrison will attend on behalf of St Louis, Dundalk.
