Our traditional May Day celebrations began with the whole school procession of flowers to honour Mary, Mother of God, followed by a musical Liturgy where, as is tradition, School Captain assisted the youngest student in Kindergarten to 'crown' Mary.
May Day celebrations continued with student stalls and activities to raise much-needed funds for Mary Ward International. Ex-student Prinnie Stevens (‘97) was special guest at concert for Senior School students, and Junior School shook it up with a fun-filled Dance Party.
The day was a wonderful celebration of school spirit and, most importantly, we raised more than $36,000 to support and sustain our Loreto preschool and projects in Timor Leste.
The cherished tradition of May Day was brought by Mother Gonzaga Barry from Ireland, where children gathered flowers from the fields to decorate shrines dedicated to Mary.
