Director of Boarding

The Boarding School comes together as a faith community every Sunday evening. The mass is the start of our week in boarding and a time to take a breath as the weekend draws to a close. This week marks the start of our graduation celebrations and as our Year 12 boarders have been farewelled from their 'home away from home', it has been a time of tears, laughter, reflection and graciousness. There are favourite mass songs, slide shows, beautiful prayers of thanksgiving and reflections on what it has meant to be a boarder for six years or 12 months.

On my recent long service leave I travelled with my wife through parts of Europe and Singapore. I was stunned by the number of people who are so connected to their phones and other devices. The number of times people nearly walked into us was astounding; heads down, not looking where they are going, and obsession with selfies. This is still a problem in Australia, however we are in a position to do something about it. Here at Loreto Normanhurst we speak of our students as “eyes up girls”.

In the wake of Elaine McDonald’s talk about the legacy of Mary Ward earlier this year, I was prompted to think about Mother Stanislaus Mulhall, the special Loreto woman after whom our own House is named. When I read her biography a number of years ago, I couldn’t help but recognise the resonances between her story and that of the contemporary members of Mulhall House and thus, we have been working to advance the awareness of her story within our own community this year.
