Building futures: Loreto Normanhurst’s new Boarding School

Loreto Normanhurst’s new Boarding School construction starts 1 July, blending tradition with modern innovation.

With over 125 years of history as a Boarding School, boarding is deeply woven into our identity and remains a key reason why many families – both day and boarding – choose Loreto Normanhurst for their daughters’ education.

We are excited to announce that construction of the new Boarding School will commence in July 2024. Construction is expected to last 18 months, with completion anticipated in December 2025.

The new Boarding School will not only enhance the living experience for our students but also serve as a vibrant hub where day and boarding students can come together, fostering a strong sense of community.

The new Boarding School will include:

  1. Unified campus with spaces for all students to enjoy.
  2. Upgraded accommodation for students and staff.
  3. Dining room facilities that will house the School canteen.
  4. An inclusive atmosphere where students can come together to learn, grow, and form lifelong friendships.

The current spaces that make up our Boarding School will be repurposed into innovative, flexible teaching and learning spaces while preserving history and tradition. Spatial assessment and planning work has already begun on this project, ensuring a seamless transition that honours our rich heritage.
