Mary Ward (1585 - 1645)

Foundress of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary


We are called as a Loreto School, to promote the Glory of God, lovingly discerning God's will for us in a growing freedom, sincerity and justice.
We endeavor to empower every child to develop to her best potential, and thus proclaim the Glory of God.
We make this empowerment the distinguishing feature of all our educational effort and are convinced that it takes place best in a school which is a dynamic entity involved continually in discerning the needs of our times and flexible enough to readjust its structures and activities to respond to them.
We create and sustain a school atmosphere where the values of love, freedom, sincerity and justice are experienced and lived out by all and where striving for excellence at the level of one's potential is an essential element.
We create conditions and make decisions at administrative and staff levels so that it becomes a continuous process, affecting staff, students and parents and takes precedence over all other motivations.
We make our school a centre where preferential love of the poor is lived out both in attitudes and structures. In cherishing the most deprived of His people, and enabling them to take their place with dignity among the others, our school becomes a place where truly the Glory of God is manifested.


  • Our aim as Loreto Educators
    Our goal is to form educated women and men, alive to the needs of the world, with the knowledge which gives them power to act, and motivated by the love which gives them purpose and wisdom in their action. Our task is the education of youth from every social background so that there can be produced those great-souled persons who are so desperately required by our times.
  • Ethical conduct towards Students
    The professional Loreto Educator in accepting his or her position of public trust, strives to help each student not only to realize her own potential but also to develop as a responsible citizen of the greater community, of the nation and the world. The professional Loreto Educator accepts personal responsibility for teaching students the qualities of character that will help them evaluate the consequences of and accept the responsibility for their actions and choices. Loreto strongly affirms parents as the primary moral educators of their children. Nevertheless, we believe all educators are obligated to help foster civic virtues such as integrity, diligence, responsibility, cooperation, loyalty, fidelity, concern for the less privileged and respect- for the law, for human life, for others and for self.
  • Ethical conduct towards Parents and Community
    The professional Loreto Educator recognizes that quality education is the common goal of the Management and Staff and Parents, and that a cooperative effort is essential to attain that goal.
  • Loreto School Policy And Procedures On Child Protection
    The overriding concern of the school is the care, welfare and safety of the children entrusted to our care. We carry out this duty through a child care policy, which aims to provide a caring, supportive and safe environment.
