place our Home

Over the last 125 years, we have had generations of Loreto women call our 1897 heritage building ‘home’, but a 19th century building can no longer meet the needs of contemporary students. By building a modern and ecologically sustainable home for our Boarding students, we are honouring our traditions and looking to the future.

Our new Boarding School will open in 2025,
with modern facilities and spaces designed to be used by both Boarding and Day students.

1897 Society - Bequests and Gifts in Will

"Leave after you something on which others may build."

Mother Gonzaga Barry (1834-1915)

Honouring Community and Generosity

The 1897 Society has been established to demonstrate our gratitude to those who wish to support Loreto Normanhurst by making a legacy gift or bequest in their Will. A gift to girls education is indeed a powerful one to bestow.

By joining the 1897 Society, we can acknowledge your profound commitment to future generations of Loreto women, in your lifetime, and invite you to connect with other like-minded donors and members of our community.

We invite you to read more in the 1897 Society brochure link below.

If you wish to contact us for more information or to discuss your bequest, please contact Lana Huntley, Philanthropy Manager, via or (02) 9473 7307.

What our Students are doing to Give Back


As the Year 12 Bursary Committee of 2022, we are a small group of students who are deeply passionate about raising awareness and fundraising for the Bursary Fund.

Working together with the entire Loreto Normanhurst community, we aim to build awareness surrounding our own Bursary Fund, generating conversations and genuine action to assist our fellow friends, much like ourselves, in achieving a Loreto Normanhurst education. 

During this upcoming year, through the efforts of the students, staff, parents and alumnae of Loreto Normanhurst, the Year 12 Bursary Committee hopes to re-establish the pre-existing Normo spirit, by aiming to fundraise to help offset the negative impacts of the pandemic, which impacted both our previous efforts and the families within our community.

As the Loreto Normanhurst Bursary Fund has supported over 52 students in the last 22 years, we express our deepest gratitude for these amazing efforts by our community that have helped many families in necessitous circumstances. We commit ourselves to continuing to expand and assist families in providing our sisters with a Loreto education.
