Co-Presidents’ Message

News from our Primary School Parent Association Liaison – Mrs Caitilin Studdert:

The Christmas Creations Gingerbread House afternoon, organised by the Development Team, was a wonderful afternoon last Saturday for Primary parents and our gorgeous girls. 

Gingerbread, icing and lollies were everywhere and the girls were so proud of their beautiful creations.

Thank you to Miss Lauren Kirkby and Miss Jennifer McLaughlin for organising a special occasion for our families.



Take the plunge, think about taking on this role with a friend for 2017. It will only take a little bit of your time, but we guarantee you will have a whole lot of fun and will get more out of this than you have to put into it…please think about it and let us know via email if you are interested and we will help you from there!

Our Year Parent Co-ordinators play a key role as a personal contact point for the Parent Association of Loreto (PAL) across Year Groups and House Groups.  They help  bring parents together and ensure key messages make it out to families providing updates on PAL and Development Office events.  You don’t have to attend all of the events, but you can make a difference by providing the personal touch, for example, welcoming a new family to the school in your Year Group, encouraging parents to get a table together for a school fund raising event or helping to organise a social gathering for your Year Group or House Group. Any or all of the above will make a difference and ensure we continue to build a culture of friendship and collaboration at Loreto Normanhurst.

Drop an email to Sue or Louise  and we will send you some information outlining the role. Your contribution will make a difference. Please consider joining us.
