“Introducing a junior school would enable the College to remain responsive to the needs and wishes of our community, by continuing to fulfil its mission and providing even more opportunities for families and their daughters to access a Catholic education founded in the tradition of Mary Ward.”

 needs, as well as benefit from our rich extra-curricular program across sport, culture and service, ” Mrs Wickham said.

“Loreto College Coorparoo was proudly recognised with excellence awards at the 2021 and 2022 Australian Education Awards (best professional learning program and best remote learning program respectively) and is committed to upholding these high standards of education in the creation of our proposed junior school.”
