"We need quality education for our girls now, so they can be the leaders of our future."
Anita Burke, Boarder Parent, Mudgee NSW
In any given year, we have families who find themselves in necessitous circumstances, including those affected by drought, bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Bursary Program provides full or part bursaries allowing us to serve families from diverse locations and backgrounds. The School has bursary places available for 2023 and beyond to support families in need and the educational aspirations of their daughters.
Please contact the Enrolments Team for more information.
Sarah Palmer ('15)
"I have had so many fantastic opportunities thus far in my life, and a lot of them have been directly and indirectly facilitated through my Loreto education. I have developed so many skills, and exhibit many qualities that were taught to me throughout my time at Loreto. I don't think I would be so fortunate if it wasn't for my Loreto education."
Sarah Palmer ('15) is a fourth generation Loreto girl who arrived as a boarded from Dubbo in Year 7. Sarah is currently studying Medicine at the University of Newcastle, which is her second degree after completing a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours) in 2018 and working as a registered physiotherapist at John Hunter Hospital Newcastle.
Tessa Regan ('04)
"The Bursary Program provides girls such as myself a promising future that would not have been possible at home."
Growing up in Coonamble, NSW, Tessa commenced boarding in Year 9 in our "home away from home." Watch this video to hear Tessa describe how she benefited from a Loreto Normanhurst Bursary in her own words.
Loreto Normanhurst was established in 1897 to provide a Loreto education for country girls. Over 120 years on, we are still committed to providing an excellent holistic education for girls in regional, rural and remote areas, as well as girls from the Sydney basin.
We welcome both city and country families who are seeking a boarding experience to apply for a Boarding Scholarship for girls in Years 7-10, 2023 and beyond.
These Scholarships are means-tested and are available to new Loreto Normanhurst students. The Scholarships provide a wonderful opportunity for students who may not otherwise be able to join Loreto Normanhurst.
Applications for Boarding Scholarships must be submitted by the end of February in the year prior to your desired start date.
