Mission Statement

As a Catholic school in the Loreto tradition, we aim to create a warm and caring community. In an atmosphere of respect and fairness, through support and friendship, we affirm each person's self-worth and dignity. We aim to provide a student-centred education that nurtures the talents and potential of all. In co-operation with parents and guardians, we work towards the spiritual, moral, social and academic development of each student. Our wish is that our students will grow into happy, confident and responsible adults.

Women in time to come will do much
