Explore Loreto Normanhurst’s award-winning holistic learning model at Open Day on 9 March as well as finding out more about the new Boarding School, due to open at the end of 2025.
Loreto Normanhurst’s award-winning holistic learning model and boarding facilities will be on show for parents and students at an open day on Saturday, 9 March.
There is much to explore in the historic school’s expansive grounds, which will soon include a new innovative and purpose-built Boarding School due to open in 2025.
“The new state-of-the-art boarding facility will foster an environment that nurtures personal growth and holistic development for all students,” said Director of Boarding Kate Kovacs.
Mrs Kovacs said boarding has long been an integral part of Loreto Normanhurst’s identity and is “interwoven into the fabric of our school”.
“We proudly welcome over 85% of boarders from regional and rural Australia, as well as students from across the Sydney basin, interstate, and overseas.”
Mrs Kovacs said boarding at Loreto Normanhurst opens doors to a myriad of extra-curricular and curriculum options.
“The immersive nature of boarding life not only provides a structured and supportive environment for academic growth but also introduces a diverse range of extra-curricular activities that fosters holistic development in sports, arts, leadership, and other enrichment activities.”
“Students gain exposure to a broader spectrum of experiences, preparing them for future challenges and equipping them with the skills and confidence needed to thrive in diverse academic and professional settings.”
Independence and friendships are nurtured at Loreto Normanhurst with comprehensive pastoral support that fosters self-confidence and broadens students’ perspectives.
Mrs Kovacs emphasises the importance of a sense of belonging and connection across age groups.
“The sense of belonging is critical. It’s about feeling connected, not just with your immediate peers, but across age groups. When these girls leave school, they’ve got great friends and great connections.”
