Fundraising Programs - Current Projects

Science Refurbishment

The focus of the 2017 Annual Giving Funds is a complete renovation of our Senior Science laboratories.

Our vision of the new science environment reflects the need to ensure our girls are fully prepared for a future world where skills in STEM areas of learning will be vital.

Through the development of innovative learning spaces, our new Science facilities will promote an approach of collaborative inquiry, increased utilisation of technology and greater student engagement with scientific inquiry.

Quad Redevelopment

Our Parents & Friends Association led the charge in our Quad Redevelopment project - creating a revitalised play area for the Junior School.

After successful fundraising initiatives, including the Quad Revival Party, Junior School Musical Opening Night and the 2015 and 2016 Loreto Ladies’ Luncheons, Loreto College and the Parents & Friends Association are excited to announce the completion of our Junior School Quadrangle redevelopment.

This rejuvenated space has transformed the learning experiences of our Junior School students.

The College and the P&F Association are grateful for the generosity of parents and carers, and those in our wider community, who have contributed to this important project through donations, support, and active involvement in the P&F Association's fundraising initiatives.

Community involvement is an important and highly valued element of Loreto Marryatville.

Archival item donations

              Archival item donations

Donations to our archival collections ensure the memories of Old Scholars and their achievements are enshrined and our College's heritage embraced by our students today and in the future.

Loreto College has an extensive archival collection that illustrates the history of the College, since its opening in 1905. This rich and mixed general archival collection includes photographs, personal papers, multimedia, artworks, historic artefacts (pre-2000 school and sports uniforms, drama costumes, school books, projects, school banners, certificates, trophies, awards, personal items used at school, letters and school mementos), and school magazines (pre-2000).

Loreto College welcomes donations of archival items within its collection policy, that help illustrate the story of the College. We also welcome the loan of items we can copy or photograph, such as photographs, newspaper clippings, school or uniform items. If unsure whether the College will accept a particular item, please contact the College Archivist to discuss.

Our Archivist is particularly interested in collecting oral history records to capture memories of school days as a past student, parent, staff member, or friend of Loreto.
