Loreto Highlights Update - 15 November 2019
The Good Samaritan
After reading the story of The Good Samaritan, where Jesus teaches us to Love your neighbour, Yr 2 thought about how they could show love to those around them.  They wrote down one idea onto a handprint which have been displayed on the classroom notice board.  

Next Gear for Traffic Free Tuesdays

This week our children have moved into second gear by wearing face masks on their walk to school.  From the border and across meeting points throughout Gibraltar, the children walked with their masks to highlight the increasing issue with transport and pollution.  The LSSC children also met with a reporter from the Gibraltar Chronicle who asked the children questions about their Traffic Free Tuesdays and Sustainable Schools work.  We look forward to treading he article when it is published.
In partnership with the LSSC our Air Pollution monitoring diffusion tube, donated by the British Lung Foundation has been installed this week.  Situated in a location where the air quality can be monitored at a level which it is accessible to our school children.  This unit will be collecting air samples and will measure the concentrations of a toxic gas know as Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2).  We look forward to receiving the analysed results in the new year.

E-Safety Talk

Parents were invited to attend a presentation by the Royal Gibraltar Police.  PC Rodriguez, PC Debono and along with a Detective from the Safeguarding unit talked about online safety with an important focus on the Sexting topic.  One parents who attended commented "I attended the Online Safety Awareness talk tonight and I wanted to thank you for arranging. I found it extremely informative and hard hitting, I came home very choked up and feeling clueless to what goes on."
We will be very happy to arrange another talk and welcome suggestions on times which would work well for parents.

Just One Tree
This is a non-profit initiative to remove CO2 from the atmosphere through global reforestation. Making it simple for everyone to contribute to collective action on the climate crisis. 
 Just One Tree donate to established reforestation partners who concentrate their planting in areas severely affected by mass deforestation. This has a great positive effect on combating global warming whilst simultaneously alleviating extreme poverty within impacted communities through training, education and employment.
Friday 22nd November 2019
We at Loreto are joining a UK-wide day to mark the start of National Tree Planting Week. We encourage each child to bring in a suggested donation of £1 to plant a tree. 
 On this day, children, parents and teachers across the UK will be united in demonstrating how an individual's actions can have a positive impact on the environment.
