Co-Presidents’ Message

Well, here we are at the end of Term 1 and no doubt everyone is looking forward (as we are) to a little break from the school routines  and taking some time to recharge and refresh before we jump back into Term 2.

There  are a lot of exciting social events happening early in Term 2, that we want to make sure you don’t miss, so get  your diary out and starting making a few entries (if they are not there already…).


Primary Parent Dinner: Gonzaga barry centre 3.01 – 3.04 

Wednesday 26 April – 7:00pm

Held on our first night back! Look out for your invitation which  should have now arrived in your inbox.  This is always  a very special evening where you can chat over a meal with other parents from the Primary Parent Community, hear a little more about the happenings within the Primary School from Head of Primary, Mrs Maryanne Dwyer  and receive a firsthand update from Mrs Katrina Leonardi  on what the Parent Association  have planned  throughout  Term 2 and how you might like to get involved.

Year 7 Family Dinner: gymnasium

Saturday 6 May – 6:00pm

This event is  a fantastic  opportunity to meet up with parents and siblings from your daughter’s house. It is also a fabulous family evening, with a country theme and some country ‘boot-scooting’ dancing. Make sure to book those tickets and make a note of this date in your diary – this is one you definitely should not miss!

Please click here for the invitation.


Mother/Daughter Eucharist:  chapel and front drive

Sunday 7 May – 9:30am

A lovely way to share some special time with your daughter/s in the beautiful Loreto Normanhurst Chapel set within the grounds of the school.  Always very special, to take some time to sit quietly and enjoy the ambience of this  spiritual space before heading out into the sunshine for a cup of tea and light refreshments within the lovely grounds adjacent to the Chapel.  Please click here for the invitation.


Current Parent / Ex-Student Morning Tea: Reception Room

Monday 8 May – 8:00am

Ex-students who are now current parents are warmly invited to attend this special Morning Tea in our Loreto Normanhurst Reception Room. At the commencement of the Morning Tea at 8am, your daughter is invited to join you for Mother/ Daughter photographs to celebrate the occasion. Please extend this invitation to any other current parents you know who are ex-students of other Loreto Schools. We would love them to join us.

Loreto Normanhurst / Kirribilli Morning Tea:  Gonzaga barry centre 3.01 – 3.04 

Friday 12 May – 10:30am

What a lovely way to start the day with a nicely brewed cup of tea or coffee and  some home made morning tea treats, shared with Mums from our sister school at Loreto Kirribilli, whilst we hear from a guest speaker on a topic of interest. This year, this special Morning Tea will take place within the grounds of Loreto Normanhurst. We will provide the venue and the Morning Tea, whilst Loreto Kirribilli have  organised our wonderful guest speaker – Cathy O’Connor, Chief Executive Officer, Nova Entertainment. The  invitation for this  lovely event will be sent out during the school holidays and we hope many Mums can join us.  


City/Country Dads’ Weekend Away: Orange

19 – 21 May

It is almost here, the much anticipated weekend away for Fathers’ of Loreto Normanhurst. If you  haven’t had a chance to book your place, don’t worry! We have extended the try booking cut-off date to accommodate a few late entrants…but do not delay, BOOK NOW!  We have reviewed the itinerary and we are a little envious.  So come along and join other Dads, get a group together from your daughter’s year group and enjoy a bit of time out in beautiful Orange. Please  click here to book and secure your place with a $50.00 deposit. Please click here for the invitation.



26 – 28 NOVEMBER

Before we  bring Term 1 to a close, we also wanted to ask all Mums to SAVE THE DATE for our eagerly awaited City/Country Mothers’ Weekend Away for 2017 following the great success of our 2016 event.


We are not following in the footsteps of the Dads, rather we are blazing our own trail, following on from our surveyed responses from participants last year, where the majority indicated that after visiting Mudgee, they would next like to explore the Orange region in 2017.

Several Mums have approached me, keen to be on the organising team for 2017 which is fantastic! If you would also like to join the organising team (also  ok by phone if you are country based, which worked well last year), everyone is welcome, please drop me an email  and we can catch up by phone and/or face to face early in Term 2 to get some details locked in.  

This year we will have Mums source their own accommodation to simplify logistics. I have been advised that the weekend we have chosen might be a little busy in Orange, so I suggest you source and book accommodation early! 

We will send out the formal invitation with the deposit to secure your place, early in Term 2, so keep your eye out for this email too!  

I think that is more than enough to digest over the holidays.  On behalf of Louise  and I, enjoy the holidays. If you are travelling, stay safe and if you are taking a break, enjoy! See you again early in Term 2!
