The Festival of Loreto Day 2020

Friday 19 June 2020

Year 11 has been busily working behind the scenes to re-imagine Loreto Day. This year, we are approaching Loreto Day more as “The Festival of Loreto Day” which will include some activities in the lead up to the day and in the week after Loreto Day in our support of our cause this year, ACRATH (Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans). 

Activities for The Festival of Loreto Day 2020 include:

The Online Raffle

Loreto Day badges 

The Loreto Day badges are appearing on many lapels around the school! There is still time to buy your badge that represents the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals and includes the House colours of the secondary school and boarding school.  Loreto Day will be cashless this year so you can purchase your pin via eftpos at student services or through the uniform shop.
