Thank you to those who have purchased a ticket and supported this raffle. In the absence of events, we do deeply appreciate your support of this fundraising initiative of the Parent Association.
In anticipation of a return to social events in 2022, PAL would like to offer the community the opportunity to help plan and organise events for next year. Our objective is to form smaller teams to help organise events such as the City/Country Mothers’ Weekend Away, Open Day and the City/Country Mothers’ Lunch. We are also looking for volunteers to help organise the Spring Fair in Term 4 of 2022, which is a wonderful event for our community. Events like this don’t just happen and are the culmination of the hard work and effort of our parent community, so we are hoping you can bring your skills and enthusiasm to the Parent Association in 2022.
We have created a short survey to look for volunteers who are interested in helping out with the events for PAL next year. If you are interested in being a part of one or more organising teams for the events next year, please complete this survey and we will be in contact with you during Term 4 to provide you with further information on these events. Thank you once again for your continued support of the Parent Association of Loreto Normanhurst.
Our Annual School Tuition Fee Raffle will be launched at the beginning of Term 4. One lucky parent will win a $15,000 credit towards their daughter’s 2022 school fees. More information will be sent out regarding this raffle in the first newsletter next term, so please watch out for that!
Thank you to all the Primary dads and daughters who were able to join the Pancake Bake Off last week. There were some fabulous pancake flips and creations on display! We hope you enjoyed your Father Daughter Pancake Breakfast! For some lovely photos of our Primary students, their dads and their pancake creations, please scroll to the bottom of this newsletter.
Thank you also to Mark and Bella Dent for their beautiful reflection at the Father Daughter Liturgy on Sunday.
If you couldn’t watch on Sunday, the video can be found here.
With lockdown going on for a while now, you may have completed lots of jigsaw puzzles of exciting places around the world – but what about Loreto Normanhurst? Here is an opportunity to purchase one of our limited-edition Loreto Normanhurst puzzles and spend an afternoon building the school back together!

As we near the end of a difficult and different term where we have all had to draw on resilience, flexibility, and positivity. We wish to acknowledge Ms Ugonotti and all the wonderful staff at Loreto who have assisted and guided our daughters in their learning and wellbeing during this challenging term. We hope you and your family can enjoy some rest and relaxation over the upcoming school holidays.
We look forward to Term 4 and our daughters returning to school when restrictions are lifted. Wishing all students, parents, and staff a lovely break.
