Learning in Primary
“We have girls who are engaged, confident, vibrant and fun-loving.
Our smorgasbord of subjects and our learning experiences
have created a community of learners who are
inherently curious about the world around them.”
Maryanne Dwyer, Head of Primary
An Award-winning Model of Education
Our award-winning model of education, the Loreto Normanhurst Student Growth Model (LNSGM), is introduced to our Primary girls from Year 5.
Specialist Primary Educators
Students will benefit from the expertise and experience of primary educators who will promote curiosity and a love of learning.
Primary students will engage in a range of learning activities that will develop their knowledge and understanding of the Key Learning Areas of the Stage 3 curriculum including English, Mathematics, Science and Technology, History, Geography, Personal Development, Health and Physical Education and the Creative Arts. All Loreto Normanhurst students will also participate in Religious Education and thus gain an appreciation for the Catholic and specifically Loreto traditions of the school.
Partnering with Parents
Plenary meetings are valued experiences for parents and their daughters at Loreto. These meetings allow parents to enter into their daughter’s life at school and are an opportunity for students to reflect upon all aspects of their school experience including their academic achievement and their well-being at school.
Access to Secondary School Facilities and Specialised Teaching
Students take advantage of superior facilities to engage in authentic learning opportunities that being part of a Years 5-12 school offers. The learning experience is enriched as students share the expertise of specialist teachers for Music, Visual Arts, Languages (Chinese), and Physical Education.
