Day of the Girl Webinar

A highlight for the Primary School was last Friday’s webinar to celebrate the International Day of the Girl. More than 300 Years 5 and 6 Loreto students, staff, sisters and friends of Mary Ward gathered to hear from inspirational speakers: Fiza Khosla (MWIA Community Engagement Coordinator), Rosalina Belo and Leonela Tilman (Loreto novices in Timor Leste) and Carina Ford (past pupil of Loreto Toorak, prominent immigration lawyer and advocate for the ‘Bilo’ family). 

We were invited into the world of girls supported by MWIA on the Kolkata brickfields, the ever-changing experience of girls and women in Timor and the plight of Kopika and Tharnicca Murugappan. It was an enriching and educative webinar, and a most tangible experience of the Loreto network. Congratulations to the Year 6 leaders who guided us through the webinar.

Tour de Loreto Update

After weeks of pounding the pavement and discovering new bush tracks in our local area, the amazing girls from the Primary School have completed the Tour de Loreto with a whopping 1659.17km. The winning class was 5B, who walked a combined 750km. An amazing effort!

Happy Birthday

Hip, hip, hooray and happy birthday to the following girls. We hope you had a wonderful day! 

Lily, Scarlett, Emma, Audrey, Grace

 

In a few short sleeps we will once again be together again, face to face, after four long months of virtual learning. We are so proud of the way the community has pulled together to support one another through what has been a most challenging time. I must commend the teachers who have worked tirelessly during this time. So now it’s time to dust off that uniform, shine up your shoes and don’t forget your mask.

Take care,

Mrs Maryanne Dwyer

Head of Primary
