Within the next three months several students from two Loreto colleges in the UK will set out to experience life in a Loreto school in Kolkata, India. They will spend between one month and a year teaching, playing and working in a school which, although on another continent, embraces the same values and bears the same name as their own.
When you join a Loreto educational establishment, whether as a member of staff or as a student, you join an organisation which has an outstanding pedagogical tradition, rooted in the Gospel values of Freedom, Sincerity and Justice. It is an organisation founded as a result of the pioneering vision of one ordinary woman who instructed her students to do ordinary things well. It is also an organisation which is international.
Loreto schools are to be found on all continents from the densely over-populated cities of Kolkata and Lima, to the remote areas of Sudan and Ghana. The education offered moves from three year old infants in Australia to university students in Toronto. Loreto education reaches out beyond boundaries to include young people of all cultures, faiths and social class.
Recently, the Mary Ward Sisters celebrated the 400th anniversary of the foundation of this unique organisation which is known to us as Loreto.
There were many celebrations but perhaps one of the most moving was a celebration in which two young girls from Sudan spoke about their education. They proudly announced that they were the first girls in their village to receive secondary education and that this was entirely due to Loreto.
It is this same tradition which is at work in Hulme and which enables students to embrace new challenges whether in Kolkata or Colyhurst.
