Abbey Spirit

Every year Loretto Abbey hosts their very own Rookie Rumble, a week where the grade 9s display their Abbey spirit through different add-on events each day. This year, during the week of December 4 to December 8, Loretto Abbey’s Student Council decided to get all the grades and started our first Spirit Week. The week’s themes included Merch Monday, Tie-Dye Tuesday, White Pine Wednesday, Tourist Thursday and, to end it off with lots of fun, Fun Friday! During the week, students enthusiastically showcased their add-ons in the hallways and through posts on social media.


“This year, student council wanted to encourage students to get more involved in the events Loretto has to offer,” said Selam Haile, Student Council President. “Spirit week is a way to not only reward students, but also a week dedicated to showing the diverse ways you can show your Abbey spirit.”


Student council awarded a student who showed exceptional spirit each day. Congratulations to Emma Love who was the overall winner of Spirit week! “It was really fun planning my outfit each day and making people laugh at my costumes,” said Emma. “The prize of the Abbey Gator mittens was definitely worth it! I was honoured to be the winner of the 2017 Spirit Week.”


Thank you to everyone who participated in Spirit Week! Student Council will continue to promote school spirit by introducing Merch Mondays throughout the year! On the first Monday of each month, students are allowed to wear add-ons from school clubs, teams, and other spirit wear.
