Small class sizes
At the Teresa Ball Primary Centre we prioritise an intimate and supportive learning environment through small class sizes. This allows for presonalised attention, fostering strong teacher-student relationships and creating an atmosphere conducive to your daughters' individualised learning experience.
All girls’ education
Our commitment to providing an all-girls' education stems from the belief that it cultivates a unique and empowering environment. In this setting, young women at Loreto Normanhurst are encouraged to excel academically, embrace leadership opportunities, and build lifelong friendships in a supportive community.
Strong focus on pastoral care and relationships
Loreto Normanhurst places a strong emphasis on pastoral care, ensuring the well-being and personal development of every student. Our dedicated pastoral care programs aim to create a supportive community where students feel valued, understood, and equipped to navigate the challenges of adolescence.
Early introduction to our Loreto Normanhurst Student Growth Model
From the outset, students at Loreto Normanhurst are introduced to our renowned Loreto Normanhurst Student Growth Model, the cornerstone of our unique approach to holistic education. The LNSGM transfers to our FACE curriculum, which places equal value on Faith, Academic, Community and Extra Curricular in the life of each student, driving confidence and independence.
Broad range of holistic learning experiences
We are proud of our varied and unique offerings in the primary school, designed to foster leadership and communication skills, resilience and creativity in our students. For instance, our Kitchen Garden Club allows girls to immerse themselves in hands-on experiences, cultivating their own herbs and vegetables, fostering a connection to nature. Simultaneously, the Social Justice Club actively engages students in fundraising and awareness-raising initiatives, instilling a sense of social responsibility. Our Frangipani Fair sees Year 6 share their entrepreneurial spirit, and our Robotics program and Year 5 Science Fair encourage proficiency and confidence in STEM
Consistently strong academic results from girls starting in Year 5, evidenced by Secondary School results
Our commitment to academic excellence begins early, with girls starting in Year 5 consistently achieving strong academic results in Secondary School. This success is a testament to our rigorous curriculum, dedicated teaching staff and the nurturing learning environment we provide.
Extended Day program
This optional after-hours study program for girls in Year 5 - 8 has been designed to meet the needs of families, while also improving individual student growth. Research shows that routine supervised study time improves student learning outcomes, particularly when students are supported by adults with knowledge of the curriculum demands in school.
