Sept 2nd / Mr Doherty did some teaching at Loreto College during his summer holidays.  Not our Loreto College, but Loreto College in Port Louis, the Capital of Mauritius.  He met with Sister Aurette and various members of her staff, and was given a tour of the school.  He also taught some maths – in French!

Mr Doherty has told us that “the evidence of the IBVM and Mary Ward was very strong: every student understood the values and ethos of Mary Ward and they were very interested to hear all about our Loreto College in St Albans. They have the same houses as us but their ‘Truth’ house is called ‘Verity’. They have a lot of lessons outside due to the heat, and the uniform is different as it would be too hot to wear blazers there.”

Mr Doherty has kindly agreed to let us share a few of his photos from the trip:
