We offer a standard, clean maintained swimming pool. Loreto Convent Valley Road provides an opportunity for those who want to further and develop their swimming skills and perhaps pursue swimming as a competitive sport.
A swimming instructor/coach is at hand to ensure this goal is met. Many of our swimmers are selected to represent the Nairobi Schools Team across the board in most swimming competitions and swimming gala where they are given awards and Certificates which Some have used the Certificates and medals won to earn admission and scholarships of various kinds of education including university education.
There are a number of Spiritual formation activities in the school. There is Mass at the school Chapel from Tuesday to Friday, Tuesdays and Thursday we have mass from the primary side Wednesday and Fridays from the secondary section in the morning before the commencement of classes. There are special occasions when Mass is celebrated by all students and staff like Mary Ward Week Mass, Form 1 Welcome Mass and Form 4 Leavers' Mass.
For the Catholic students, there is a continuous formation programme which involve Catechism classes that lead to First Holy Communion and Confirmation Sacrements. Students are also trained to serve during Mass as Alter girls, choir members and animators.
We have three science laboratories, one each for Chemistry, Biology and Physics. The labs are fully equipped and professionally managed by the science teachers and the laboratory assistants. Considerations are given to nature of professional scientific practice, the personal relevance of student's understanding of the nature of empirical scientific research, and the role of technology to support learning.
At Loreto, we strongly believe in "All work and no play makes Judy a dull girl". We strive to ensure all the children engage in fun activities to encourage social bonding and mental growth.
