Development News & Events

Welcome back to Term 4 everyone and we hope it’s a great one for all! The HSC has started and we extend our best wishes to Year 12 over the coming weeks, we know they are well-prepared to face this important challenge.

On Wednesday  the Parent Association provided  some delicious sweet treats at the staff morning tea to celebrate ‘World Teachers Day’. Thanks to Louise Wytenburg and Katrina Leonardi who provided over 200 delicious Loreto crested vanilla and chocolate cupcakes on behalf of the Parent Association, in celebration of both teaching and non-teaching members of staff.   

A reminder that on 27 November,  the Parent Association will be having their AGM and voting for the 2019 committee will be taking place. Everyone is welcome and perhaps you’d like to get involved next year? It’s going to be  a big one with the Spring Fair in November 2019 – so all help would be appreciated. 

Additionally the Ex-Students’ Association AGM will be held on Sunday 2 December. Details about voting for both events will be forwarded separately.

If you wish to get involved in PAL,   or if you have any questions, Tracey Hartshorne & Rob Critchlow (Co-Presidents) would love to hear from you! Please   contact PAL via email .
