Co-Presidents Message

We are very proud of our Year 9 students who have completed their Far North Queensland Experience and we are looking forward to welcoming them home this evening at the Welcome Home Supper.

We are also  delighted that Year 6 had such a wonderful Parents Dinner last Saturday night and wish to thank Lorna O’Sullivan for co-ordinating that special event.


Supporting ‘Loreto with a Heart’ via the Mission Dinner, 19 August 2016, reception room, 7pm

We welcome all parents who would like to join us for our special Mission Dinner which will be held next Friday, 19 August, in the Reception Room at 7pm.

The Parent Association of Loreto (PAL) Committee supports the Mission each year and all proceeds from this dinner are forwarded directly to Loreto Convent, Entally. Loreto Normanhurst has a strong tradition of supporting this wonderful school. More information about the school, its history and its students is available through their school website – please click here. The School website mentions that Loreto Convent Entally is often referred to as ‘Loreto with a Heart’. It would be wonderful if our community could demonstrate how big our heart is and support this wonderful Mission.

Each year a special guest speaker is asked to present and this year our guest will be Ms Kerry McCullough, Dean of Mission, Loreto Normanhurst.

The Mission Dinner tickets are $65 per person and all proceeds go directly to the Loreto Sisters’ mission in Entally. To book your tickets, please click on Trybooking link: If you are unable to attend on the evening you can still make a donation online via our TRYBOOKING link
