Loreto Day

Loreto Day 2016

This week is Loreto Day Week! It is with excitement, enthusiasm, dedication and commitment that our Year 11 students worked with such joy and fun to prepare a meaningful day for our whole community to enjoy.

We started the day with a beautifully prepared liturgy and we welcomed Bishop Peter Comensoli to our school to share this occasion with us. The Year 11 students took much time to prepare appropriate music, meaningful reflections and readings and a powerful message through music, colour, words and images to make us all aware of Nyumbani Village in Kenya, the cause for Loreto Day.

As part of our greater Sydney community, we also welcomed 85 students and staff from St Lucy’s and St Edmund’s to our school and they were escorted around the House stalls by Year 11 and Year 12 buddies to share in the fun and excitement of the day.

The House stalls were jam packed with lots of delights to be enjoyed after the liturgy. We savoured the tastes and smells of pancakes, hot chips, popcorn, chocolate, pizzas, and the sausage sizzle…. and of cause lovely coffee, tea and hot chocolate at Kuringai’s café.

We were moved on to the now famous Loreto Day Concert. Our Concert Reps worked hard to ensure quality performances which highlighted the incredible talent amongst students and staff. They listened to many auditions, did sound checks, and communicated exceptionally well with all to ensure a very entertaining variety concert. The usual highlight of the concert was again the performance by 19 St Edmunds students….and of course a staff act or two.

The Loreto Day Auction is looking amazing and offers such a variety of interesting items…from a weekend away in Dubbo, tickets at Taronga Zoo, Opera House tickets, organic honey and many more.
