Development Office Events
Thank you to all the parents who attended events over the weekend. It was a big weekend on the calendar and it was great to see so many parents joining us at multiple events.
The weekend started off with the annual Loreto Normanhurst/Kirribilli Morning Tea, this year hosted by Kirribilli. Sr Margaret Sheppard RSM was our guest speaker and spoke of her experiences with refugees and encouraged us to work to change something we are passionate about and make a difference.
Thank you to the Parent Association and the Year 7 Parents led by Kerri Barr for their work on the Year 12 Cocktail. The night is the first of the lasts for Year 12 parents and a great way for Year 7 Parents to meet each other and be introduced to the Loreto Normanhurst Community.
Thank you to those who joined us for the beautiful celebration of mothers and daughters at our Mother Daughter Eucharist in the Chapel on Sunday. Kirsty and Grace Reid (Year 11) did a beautiful reflection on their mother and daughter relationship.
On Monday morning, we welcomed our current parents who are ex-students to a morning tea with their daughters. It is a great morning to catch up with old friends, make new ones and reminisce about their school days. Thank you to Janneke Chudleigh, President of the Ex-Students’ Association for attending the morning tea.
Tomorrow night is a highlight of the calendar with the Parent Association’s L&N Trivia Night! We hope you have got your outfits ready, your wallets at the ready and your thinking cap on for a great night of trivia and fun!
