Loreto Normanhurst is a Catholic, independent, boarding and day school for girls in Years 5 to 12.
The school offers full-time boarding from Year 7 and is a ‘home away from home’ for more than 150 young women, mainly from country NSW.
From 2018, the school is also welcoming city-based students and will offer more flexible boarding options for all boarders.
Loreto Normanhurst principal Barbara Watkins said maximum flexibility and optimum use of facilities would confidently support the education of students into the future.
“As we look forward with our strategic plan and a new 30-year master plan, it is timely that we review our current practices,” Ms Watkins said.
“This includes diversification of our current model of boarding, while our traditions at the heart of what we do.”
The full-time model is still at the core of Loreto Normanhurst boarding, but now incorporates full flexibility on weekends.
For country and city-based boarders alike, this means boarding all week with greater access to weekend time with family and friends.
This model of boarding can also take some of the pressure off busy family life and help students meet their academic and extra-curricular commitments.
Since its beginning, boarding has been an integral part of Loreto Normanhurst.
