When you join Loreto College as a student, you join a worldwide organisation which has an outstanding pedagogical tradition, rooted in the key values of Excellence, Freedom, Internationality, Joy, Justice, Sincerity and Truth.
Loreto schools are to be found all over the world, from the 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.
Students at Loreto College have the opportunity to visit different Loreto institutions around the world, including in Australia, India and Peru. During your time at Loreto, you could be one of a group of students who will travel to Kolkata in India on a two week visit to Loreto’s sister school. During the day the students will help in English lessons and deliver Physical Education sessions. In the evening they’ll work with the Rainbow Children, delivering a wide variety of sports sessions. The Rainbows are the orphans who live on the roof of the school and, just like a rainbow brings happiness, so do the children when they appear at the gates.
During the two week visit students will have the opportunity to see the fantastic work that Loreto does outside of their schools, such as the Sampuna Project, where school pupils go out to remote villages to teach the village children English and Numeracy. There is also a visit to the Brickfields, where travelling children are educated for parts of the year. Our students will also have the opportunity to meet Sister Cyril, former Principal of Sealdah and advisor to the Indian government on the Rainbow Children project.
