Year 12 Mothers’ Weekend Away to Orange

Friday 13th – Sunday 15th March

For some, another daughter is entering her last year of school, for others, it’s our first time experiencing the beginning of all ‘the lasts’ with the Year 12 cohort of 2020.  To mark this occasion we have booked a weekend away to share our stories and laugh and reminisce about the very special years we have shared together at Loreto Normanhurst with the Year 12 graduating Class of 2020.   This weekend is open to all Year 12 mum’s and we hope you can join us! Even if you don’t know many  people in your year group,  this is a very inclusive event and we hope you can join us.  If you have any concerns please contact Joanna McDonald via email. 

Information regarding the weekend has been sent to Year 12 Mothers but can also be accessed HERE.
