Loreto Kirribilli offers three Bursary Funds to help provide ‘the gift of education’ to families who otherwise would not have been able to benefit from these opportunities. Thanks to the generosity of our community, the means-tested bursaries allow an individual student to begin or continue her education in the tradition of the Loreto Sisters.
The Loreto Kirribilli Bursary Fund
A tax deductible fund which enables two students to flourish and complete their education at Loreto Kirribilli in Years 10 through to Year 12.
Pepita Anne Cosack Bursaries
A number of bursaries named in memory of Pepita Anne Cosack (nee Comins) are provided each year to assist in the education of daughters, granddaughters, nieces and cousins of Loreto Kirribilli ex-students whose financial circumstances warrant help.
Ex-Students' Union Funded Bursaries
A number of means-tested bursaries are provided each year for students in the Senior School.
The Loreto Kirribilli Building Fund and Capital Appeals are the main philanthropic projects managed by the Development Office. Tax-deductible donations to these campaigns support new building projects, improvements to the grounds and the purchase of new equipment as well. Informed by the sustainability pillar in our strategic plan to achieve net zero emissions by 2030, the purchase of additional solar panels will benefit thousands of students over several generations by reducing our carbon footprint.
In order to keep up with the constant demands and the rapid changes associated with curriculum-driven improvements, we need and value your support. 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.
The inclusion of Loreto Kirribilli in your Will is a lasting and wonderful way to contribute to the ongoing legacy of Mary Ward, and to maintain your link with the educational philosophy of the Loreto Sisters.
Loreto Kirribilli’s excellence today is due in no small part to the generosity of past generations and we urge you to consider this option for the benefit of future students at Loreto, just as the Heaton family did, by generously helping with the purchase of Elamang in 1907.
Many other individuals and families since have assisted in this way, contributing to the acquisition of land and the development of buildings that make Loreto the excellent centre of learning it is today.
Some suggested wording for a Bequest to Loreto Kirribilli can be found in the Bequest Intention Document and may help you in the preparation of your Will. It is recommended that you seek legal advice before preparing such a document.
Should you wish to advise the school of your intentions, your private information would be held in the utmost confidence. The joy of divulging this information prior to its implementation would give us the opportunity to thank you during your lifetime.
