Reception Room Restoration Project

To commemorate 120 years of Loreto education at Normanhurst the school is undertaking a restoration project of the Reception Room.

Since 1897 the Reception Room has been at the heart of Loreto Normanhurst – a special place with special memories for generations of Loreto Normanhurst families.  The room echoes with the voices of the school’s very first students, of music, of friendships and 120 years on, cherished moments continue to be founded in the hearts and minds of our current students.

We have commissioned a heritage architect to ensure the restoration will reflect the original character of the room.  The charter of work will include repair to the floor, the stained glass windows, the walls and architraves.  New curtains, blinds and lighting will be fitted, all in keeping with the era.  The estimated cost of the project is approximately $350,000.

My hope is that with financial assistance from our community we will restore the heritage-listed Reception Room in recognition and appreciation of the mission and commitment of the Loreto Sisters at Normanhurst over the last 120 years.  I would very much value your financial support of this project which we aim to complete by October this year.

With your help we will ensure that the Reception Room continues to be a treasured space which truly reflects the history and tradition of Loreto Normanhurst.


With warm regards
