Resilience research confirms that the presence of a caring adult in the life of a young person is important in assisting students to overcome adversity and achieve at school.
The Loreto Normanhurst Mentor Program seeks to provide such a presence for our Year 10 students. In the Year 10 Integrated Curriculum, students will be asked to reflect on their strengths, their past experiences and their broader interests to identify possible future paths. Through the assistance of a mentor who is external to the school, students will refine their thinking and in doing so create a vision of their future which is congruent with the philosophy of a Loreto education.
The mentoring program at Loreto Normanhurst is a successful initiative that not only supports the student, but builds community beyond the school.
