There was much excitement yesterday, as we met the newest members of the Primary School – the incoming Year 5, and new Year 6, students for 2021. Orientation looked a little different this year, due to the current restrictions. Led by some of our current Year 5 students, the girls made their way to the Teresa Ball Primary Centre where they settled in very quickly. They met the Primary School Team, played some ‘getting to know you games’ and explored the school on a treasure hunt. As the girls sat together in open circles with their new classmates, it was lovely to see connections and new friendships beginning to take shape. We can’t wait until we see them again when they commence next year.
Loreto’s Got Talent
Over the past two weeks the Primary School has witnessed an amazing array of skill and ability during the heats, semi-finals and finals of Loreto’s Got Talent. Congratulations to all of the girls who auditioned and displayed their enthusiasm and courage.
There were 19 finalists whose acts ranged from singing, dancing, comedy acts and stirring musical items. It was an extremely difficult decision for the judges, but in the end Carissa Kidner placed 3rd with a stunning contemporary dance, ‘Groceries R Us’ placed 2nd with a hilarious skit set in a grocery store, and Carina Wen placed 1st with a brilliant and moving piano piece from the movie, ‘Amelie.’ Thank you to the girls for showcasing their amazing talent.
