As one of seven Loreto schools in Australia, Loreto Kirribilli was founded by the Loreto Sisters whose 17th Century founder, Mary Ward, recognised the critical difference that education could make to her troubled world, especially through the education, care and development of faith in women.
The community of Loreto is committed to living up to the expectations of Mother Gonzaga Barry, who stated:
“What the world needs is a wise, lovable and well-educated woman.”
The Loreto Kirribilli tradition combines a strong program of religious education and pastoral care, excellent academic outcomes and a wide choice of co-curricular activities supported by talented and experienced staff and an up-to-date, fully equipped campus.
Our educational philosophy, based on the belief that women can excel, with an emphasis on social concern and student leadership, helps us encourage these qualities in our girls – and in our teaching and non-teaching staff.
