Keeping our school community connected.


The Loreto Kirribilli Development Office plays a vital role in all aspects of engagement of our school community, fostering relationships between our ex-students, past parents, Loreto Sisters and Parents & Friends. We are committed to fostering the core Loreto values of Sincerity, Verity, Felicity, Freedom of Spirit and Justice.

Loreto Kirribilli, ‘a school with Spirit’, began educating young women in 1908. Steeped in tradition, our school has a long-standing reputation for excellence in education. In the Development Office we continue to seek philanthropic support from the Loreto Kirribilli community to ensure that the work of educating young women, inspired by Mary Ward and carried out by the Loreto Sisters, will continue.

A financial gift to Loreto follows in the footsteps of Mother Philomena Heaton. This began with the very first ‘ask’ to her mother, Sarah Heaton, to purchase the first building at Loreto Kirribilli, Elamang in 1907. And we are blessed to have families who continue this tradition for the benefit of current and future generations. The generosity of families across the school over the years has resulted in excellent facilities, maintained to the highest standards for the benefit of students and staff.

Leave after you something on which others may build.
