Dean of Extra-curricular
Dance, Theatresports, Philosophy Club, Open Circle, Robotics, Film Club, Textiles Open Studio and Oratory Club are just some of our new offerings in Extra-curricular this year. There is so much on offer at Loreto Normanhurst and I invite all students to try something new, make new friends and seek new challenges through our extensive program.
After seeking input from staff and students in 2020, we have extended our range of activities for 2021. There is literally something of interest for everyone. I visited our Philosophy Club on Monday afternoon as the students watched scenes from ‘The Matrix’ and discussed the concept, ‘ the body cannot live without the mind.’ As I write this article, I am listening to the laughter and chatter of students learning a new game in our Chess and Strategic Games Club and across the hall there are students creating artwork in the Visual Arts Open Studio. What a wonderful way to develop new skills, build resilience and learn to work with and listen to others, all while having fun.
Extra-curricular at Loreto includes all Sport, Music and Oratory programs as well as our extensive Clubs and Teams opportunities. Learning does not just occur within the four walls of the classroom. In fact, our extra-curricular activities will assist all students in unlocking their potential as well as providing them with the keys to understanding themselves and others in a fast-paced and rapidly changing world.
If you would like more information on our full extra-curricular program then please visit the FACE Online Extra Curricular page on Canvas where you will find information on all of our Sports, Music ensembles, Oratory, Drama, Mission and Clubs/Teams & Activities programs.
