Would you like to make an appointment with a careers advisor?


The Careers team  at Loreto Normanhurst can help in many ways including: subject selection, work experience, writing resumes, gap year options, part time work and post school pathways.

The Careers Office is open to all students. We are available in the office, located in the LRC, before and after school, and at recess and lunch. Girls are most welcome to drop in but at times we can be busy with students, so the best thing to do is to send an email indicating your availability or drop in with your diary to schedule a time.

Please email
