Advent Calendars

Thank you for your support of our very special Advent Calendars

In the last school newsletter, we launched our Advent Calendars to our community. The Advent Calendars were created as a way to meaningfully engage with our treasured Golden Jubilarians (ex-students who left Loreto Normanhurst 50 or more years ago) and who would normally be joining us on site for an end of year celebration. As such, we posted 450 Advent Calendars to our Golden Jubilarians and we are delighted to share with you some of the feedback from this initiative.

“This is a lovely gesture at a time when we need some words of hope and inspiration and no doubt, such words will be revealed as I move through Advent.”-  Rhonda

“I have had wonderful feedback from a number of ex-students who were astonished, grateful and amazed to receive this small gift from the School for their 50 years and certainly appreciated your kind gesture.” – Patsy

“Just a note of warm thanks to those responsible for dispatching  an Advent Calendar to your golden oldies… it is an encouraging thoughtfulness sure to be especially appreciated in this tricky year.” – Pru

“Thank you so much for my Advent Calendar.  I was delighted to receive it from Loreto. After such a strange, unknowable year it seemed so joyous and hopeful. I can’t wait to begin opening windows.” – Alison

We are so grateful to our current parents, future parents, staff and alumni who have purchased these Advent Calendars, as a way of safely connecting and reflecting on all those who make up our Loreto Normanhurst community.

100% of profits from the sale of these Advent Calendars will go to our Bursary (Welfare) Fund which enables families in necessitous circumstances to give their daughters a Loreto Normanhurst education.
