Loreto Education Philosophy

Students need to develop academic capacities as these are required to live in the modern competitive world where grades matter. Loreto encourages student to do their personal best to exploit their full academic potential. This belief is based on the conviction that every child is endowed with unique abilities and it is the role of the educator to help develop them. However much more than academics is needed, in order to meet the many challenges of their lives. Students must learn resilience. Studies have shown that resilience is not an inherent quality, but one that is learned. Resilience is fundamental to overcoming difficulties, facing challenges and long-term success in any field.

In Loreto, we are part of this rapidly changing culture which offers us both challenges and opportunities. For us to succeed, we require the commitment of all involved in the Education of the pupils and students in the Loreto Schools to make our ideals a reality. Mary Ward strove to educate in and for society. Her distinctive spirit is our inheritance and her message to the pupils and students today is;

“Gather for yourself in your youth a great treasure of virtues and good habits, which in old age may prove your support and your consolation”
