about the ‘120 inspirational loreto women’ book:

To be part of the Loreto Normanhurst community is a precious gift. Ex-students, staff, members and friends of our community, past and present, have gone on to generously share their gifts with others, making positive contributions across Australia and around the globe. They are Loreto people who are “constant, efficacious and loving”.

‘120 Inspirational Loreto Women’ is a tribute to these outstanding women. We honour their achievements, and fondly share in their stories and cherished memories of their time at Loreto Normanhurst.


This book is in celebration of all those who have made the colours of our beautiful Loreto Normanhurst rainbow come alive for each and every day of the last 120 years.
