Co-Presidents’ Message

Our very special  Mother / Daughter Dinner  was held  at the Epping Club on Saturday 29 October and we would like to thank all of the mums once again,  for attending this beautiful event to enjoy dinner, dancing and laughter with your daughters and friends.


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

We are so excited to be visiting the Primary School this Saturday to build our gingerbread houses. This Christmas Creations afternoon is brilliantly organised by the Development Team and is a real highlight of the year for both parents and the girls.

We are also gearing up for a Bouncy Bash for Year 6 girls on Sunday 4 December, at Inflatable World. Please  click here for the invitation and please call Lorna O’Sullivan with any questions on 0400 007 713.



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  Louise  or Sue  and we will send you some information on what the role might look like. It is really up to you how much you do – anything is appreciated! Everything makes a difference…come  and join us!
