Development News and Events

The Development Team have had the pleasure of helping to plan and organise the farewell events for Ms Barbara Watkins this term. The first of these events was held last Friday night as current and past parents  and ex-students across many year groups of Loreto Normanhurst gathered to celebrate Ms Watkins’ 18 years of outstanding and inspired leadership of our school community. It was so wonderful to welcome so many members of our community to wish Ms Watkins well. 

This week the school held a beautiful Celebration of the Eucharist to acknowledge the faithful service and leadership of Ms Watkins.  The celebration  reflected the love, warmth and gratitude the school community has for Ms Watkins and as we gave thanks for her stewardship and friendship we wished her well knowing that our gratitude and love goes with her.

On Saturday,  a fun and festive time was had by all at the Primary School Mothers and Daughters’ Christmas Creations and so much creative effort emerged.  Each gingerbread house was totally unique with a vast range of lolly embellishments including mini gingerbread men, caterpillars, candy canes, butterflies and even snails ! A  lovely  way for our mums and their daughters to spend some  time together as the school term starts to wind down towards the Christmas holidays.



Tuesday 27 November, the Parent Association (PAL) will hold their AGM in the Curran Theatre  from 7.30pm. Voting for the 2019 will take place and we’d love to welcome you. There will be a special presentation to Ms  Watkins so it will be a great opportunity to farewell her as she starts her new journey.

A reminder that the Ex-Students’ Association AGM will be held on Sunday 2 December at 2pm.
