We would like to invite you to a presentation on air pollution – how it affects our children and what we may do to minimise the effects.
Alison Cook is Director of Policy for the British Lung Foundation and works with groups of parents to raise awareness. She will be talking to pupils at Loreto next week and she will be happy to explain her role to and meet with parents at 11am on Thursday 17th October in the old school hall.
This is a unique opportunity to hear from a leader in this area which is so important for the future of our children and I would urge you to make every effort to attend.

The Loreto Sustainable School Committee (LSSC) have a new motto this year:
We are a group of pupils and teachers enthusiastic about the environment. We are committed to making Loreto a sustainable and environmentally-friendly school. Our aim this year is to continue to spread the word about all the small steps that we can all take which will make a difference to our school, our community and our planet.
Our #TrafficFreeTuesday initiative continued this week with more children joining the LSSC team on their walk to school. It is the aim of the LSSC to walk to school on Tuesday mornings, highlighting the need for fewer cars on our congested roads which will ultimately lead to cleaner air. At Loreto, we also actively discourage the idling of cars and buses at our pick up and drop off points, ensuring our pupils are not subjected to excess pollution.
Children In Need Appeal
Some of our wonderful children in Year 6 organised a Bake Sale for children in years 5 and 6. They raised over £200 to support the BBC's Children In Need Appeal.
The Year 4 children have been learning about circuits, using electrical equipment to make a quiz…get the answer right and the bulb lights up! They can be spotted going around the school asking everyone to answer their questions – even Mrs Napoli was interrogated!
Year 1 Religion
Year 1 have listened to the story of the feeding of the five thousand. We learned the importance of sharing and caring for those in need.
