Year 7 Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day

This  morning   our very special annual Grandparents’ & Special Friends Day’ event was held in the Chapel and the School Grounds. What a lovely tradition at Loreto Normanhurst.  A chance for our Year 7 students to showcase the school, introduce their grandparents and/or special friends to their classmates and enjoy some precious time (and a cup of tea) with these very special and important people.

What About a Dads Weekend Away? 

We would be interested  to know your thoughts and/or interest in attending a City/Country Dads Weekend Away. 

For our inaugural weekend away we are looking at Orange. We want to understand the level of interest for this type of event and put together a small team of dads across both city and country to make this happen in Autumn 2017 if there is sufficient interest. 

So please drop me a note if you  might be interested in attending this event and/or if you would like to get involved to explore organising a weekend away with other Dads –

All are welcome across Years 5 – 12. We look forward to hearing from you!
