Loreto Community School, Milford Co. Donegal, deploy Skilly to support their 1st Year Students SPHE / Wellbeing Development Programmes


Skilly is delighted to announce its collaboration with Loreto, Milford to deliver its market-leading Wellbeing measurement and tracking solution for their junior cycle students.

Loreto is a leading secondary school situated in Milford, Co. Donegal, having been established as a Loreto College by the Loreto Sisters in 1966. The school became a community school in 1996 with the Loreto Sisters as joint trustees with Donegal ETB and the Bishop of Raphoe.

Commenting on the announcement, ​Emma Black, Wellbeing Coordinator at Loreto Milford, said :

‘Skilly has created an innovative solution for students, teachers, and the school to track our students' engagement in developing the skills that underpin their development and Wellbeing. The lessons are delivered in SPHE.

Students engage in self-reflective learning practices aligned with the SPHE curriculum. This gives us essential data on their progress and their impact.

We are excited to introduce this programme to our community and leverage many exciting features, including connecting parents with their student's wellbeing development when Student Wellbeing is under increased scrutiny.

Commenting on the announcement, Shane Maguire, CEO of Skilly, said,

"Students cannot learn wellbeing skills from a textbook; they need to be owned by the student, repeated and practised". Our software makes that happen in schools safely and effectively for the student. We look forward to collaborating with Loreto Milford to support the enhanced development of their students' Wellbeing and life skills over the coming years.
