The Junior School offers an inspiring and interactive learning environment as collaborative teams of highly qualified, experienced educators build upon the early foundations for learning success.

The journey in the Junior School begins in our Junior Primary Learning Centre. Here, our girls explore their creativity, discover new ideas, and build positive friendships. Our vibrant Junior School classrooms foster a sense of belonging and are designed to enhance curiosity, wonder, and a love of learning.

Academic and Inquiry Learning

Our academic program is inquiry based, rigorous, and inclusive of all students. We encourage our students to become critical and creative thinkers, to problem-solve, and to understand the connections between their learning and the real world. With a growing awareness of our changing global society, Loreto students also pursue social entrepreneurialism and engage in leadership for action.

Our students exhibit strong inter-cultural understanding, kindness, and respect for others. Girls engage in the School’s Social, Emotional, and Academic Development (SEAD) Program which allows them to flourish and achieve success.

Through personalised programs, our girls emerge from their junior years with the confidence, resilience, and self-reflective skills to become independent learners. Inspired to innovate, collaborate, and reach their potential, our students lead their own learning effectively and are actively engaged in constructing new possibilities.
