Sport is a significant component of the extra-curricular dimension at Loreto Normanhurst.  We offer an extensive array of sports which cater for girls of all skill levels.  Representative pathways are provided by IGSSA (Independent Girls Schools Sports Association), IPSHA (Independent Primary School Heads Association) and the NSW CIS (Combined Independent Schools) Sports Council. 

Sport at Loreto Normanhurst is enjoyed in a spirit of competition and pursuit of team and personal bests. The coaching staff, facilities for sport and the Sports Department’s organisation provide excellent sporting opportunities for all students of every ability level. Students make a commitment on registering for a Sport, which includes attending all training sessions and all games. Whilst sport is not compulsory, more than 95% of students at the school participate in sports throughout the year, and all Year 7 to 10 Boarders are required to do a Saturday sport each term.  All competitions run by the school are part of IGSSA or IPSHA, unless specified.  Additionally national and international sports tours are conducted from time to time, providing memorable experiences for staff and students.

Sport in the school is run by the Head of Sport and Sports Administrator with the Deputy Principal having oversight of all extra-curricular activities in the school.
