Annual Giving 2020

“Standing on the Shoulders of Giants”

For more than 123 years, Loreto Normanhurst has been inspiring in our students a love of learning, and the ability to use their Loreto education creatively, compassionately and courageously throughout their lives. Guided by Mary Ward’s mission to ‘be seekers of truth and doers of justice’, as Loreto people we are constantly striving in pursuit of a just world.

In recent months, we have seen our nation and our world experience confronting, significant events. The ongoing impact of drought, the devastation caused by the bushfires, and the current global pandemic have been challenging for everyone. However, through these events we have been reminded of how interconnected we all are to one another. They have allowed us to fully appreciate what unites us: our common humanity, goodness and kindness.

At Loreto Normanhurst, our mission is to develop independent, articulate and compassionate women of integrity who will respond to the needs of their time and make a difference in the world. The theme of our Music Festival for 2020, traditionally a bursary event, is ‘Standing on the Shoulders of Giants.’ Accordingly, we look to the vision of our founder, Mary Ward, and of Mother Gonzaga Barry – Loreto women who were pioneers in girls’ education. They had incredible foresight and a profound belief in the capacity of women to contribute significantly to society and to our world.

For this year’s Annual Giving, we ask you to join us in continuing to honour their vision by providing the gift of a Loreto education to families in need. We invite you to contribute to creating an environment that both supports a holistic education experience in the spirit of those who have gone before us, as well as inspires future generations of ‘Loreto Girls’ to come.
