Loreto Education Philosophy
The purpose of Loreto education is to prepare students to meet the challenges of life as well as develop their academic abilities. Loreto offers a Catholic Education which Liberates, empowers and motivates students to use their individual gifts with confidence, creativity and generosity in loving and responsible services. Loreto Education has a vigorous belief in the capacity and responsibility of women to contribute significantly to society and the church which underlies the emphasis in our tradition on the education of girls.
The qualities of Freedom, Justice and Sincerity are the core of Mary Ward's spirit. In this spirit, Loreto Education believes that it is important for the students to learn about themselves, about healthy relationships, pro- social behavior and resilience. It believes in developing the emotional and social aspects of the students. It encourages self discipline and gives genuine responsibility to students, allowing risk and flexibility, allowing for the process growth and gives freedom to face and learn from mistakes. In the same spirit relationships in the school community are of mutual respect and acceptance of difference. Students are helped to develop a sense of identity and inner freedom which helps them become more capable of accepting responsibility for their lives, be courageous, compassionate and give generous service.
