Welcome – Director of Pastoral Care

Welcome – Director of Pastoral Care

Loreto Normanhurst welcomed Mrs Lynn Long to the role of Director of Pastoral Care in January 2018.

Having recently completed a Masters of Education in Student Wellbeing, Mrs Long is a passionate and dedicated educator with over 27 years of experience working in independent girls’ schools.

“Thank you to the staff, students and parents who have provided me with such a warm welcome and have assisted to make my transition into the role of Director of Pastoral Care so seamless.  Before joining Loreto Normanhurst, I heard such positive things about the strong relationships that underpin this vibrant community, and I am thoroughly appreciating my firsthand experience of this.

Pastoral Care at Loreto  Normanhurst aims to provide a caring environment where positive relationships are nurtured and where each girl is known, valued and able to grow in this community. What has been so impressive for me is to see the structures and programs that are in place to facilitate the holistic academic care of students, as well as the continuity of knowing and supporting the growth of each student. As a person-centred school, relationships are at the core of our work and we certainly value the partnership between family and school.”

“I look forward to a year of partnership with parents and community as we work together to support your daughter in realising her academic and personal potential.”
