Good afternoon to all members of the Loreto Normanhurst community and welcome to the 2021 school year. Welcome back to those returning families and a most warm welcome to all our new families of students across Years 5 to 11, in the day school and in Boarding. You are most welcome in this beautiful open circle of friends. I hope that last night your girls either picked up the phone or had a video call or came home if they're a day student with stories of their first day here at school. Read more

There was excitement in the air as the Primary School welcomed our returning students and our brand new Year 5 girls to commence the school year. The girls quickly found their lockers, their Year 6 buddies and their place in the Learning Common. It is a joy to welcome the girls and their families into the Loreto Normanhurst community.
We were thrilled to welcome our new and returning boarders…
Over four hundred years ago, Mary Ward, the foundress of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, left us a sure and certain pathway into authentic Christian spirituality and living. The Values she spoke of, and indeed lived, are a well-trod way into the heart of all that Jesus taught and invited us into. Those Values are Sincerity, Justice, Freedom, Verity and Felicity.
As we begin what is celebrated by Loreto schools around Australia as the Year of Felicity, we share with you this Felicity Prayer. The words of this prayer were crafted collaboratively by the Loreto student leaders from all Loreto schools in Australia and will guide our communities in their reflection on and expression of Felicity in 2021.
Welcome back to all students to a new year of learning at Loreto. I think we can all agree that we learnt a great deal after weathering the storm of 2020 and that there was a silver lining to the many changes that we had to navigate.
We are off and running for 2021 with a new school year which brings with it much anticipation of what might lie ahead. The campus is filled with the buzz of the students and it is wonderful to see the girls back at school. Welcome back to our returning students and families and a very warm welcome to our new students and their families.
