The Ex-Students’ Union is inviting the school community to enjoy an interesting and fun evening, with insight into some inspiring Loreto women’s pursuits after graduation. Our guest speakers will reveal how they have gone on to use their Mary Ward spirituality and education to achieve a broad range of philanthropic endeavours, intellectual pursuits and musical entertainment.
Guest panelists include:
- Katrina Kimmorley (’04) – Co-founder of Pollinate Energy, India
- Claudia McEwen (’11) – Founder of Wake Up & 2014 NSW Pride of Australia Young Leaders Award
- Caro Meldrum-Hanna (’99) – ABC Journalist, Walkely award winner
- Emma Rossi (’84) – Board Director of Mary’s House
Our Dinner invitation is extended to the broader community of ex-parents, current parents and ex-students. Please get a table together of those you’ve shared a sideline or a riverbank with, those people whose companionship you enjoyed so much throughout your daughter’s schooling. Come to revisit and rekindle. We have kept our ticket costs low in the hope that we will get a gathering of all ages, as we are really trying to reinvigorate our Ex-Students’ Union. As our major silent auction prize we have the incredibly generous donation by the Messara family of a weekend away for five couples at the Arrowfield stud inclusive of fully catered dinner, breakfasts and a private tour of this thoroughbred estate.

Our school, and our daughters’ school, has an inspiring future planned, and we as ex-students and parents can be an involved part of the Ignatian spirituality that inspired Mary Ward in the 17th Century. The educational philosophy of the Loreto school is based on the belief that women can excel in all fields, with an emphasis on social concerns and leadership.
To quote Mother Gonzaga Barry, the founder of Loreto schools in Australia, “What the world needs is a wise, lovable and well-educated woman”.
