Head girl's Message
"Loreto's standard bearers we.."

As I held the lower half of the flag pole by my side, the words of our chorus echoed in the 'Big Hall' as each girl sang in solemnity and reverence.
Loreto House, 7, Middleton Row has evolved into 'home' for each of its students over the years and borne the legacy of many a woman of substance. When I entered its gates as a young girl, my mother was told, "Don't worry, she will find her way." Twelve years later, I believe I have found my way. I have found my way as a Loretoite upholding the values of humility, hardwork, leadership and compassion towards the less fortunate. Each prayer, social service program, group activity and value education class has become an intrinsic component of a Loreto girl's education which always transcends the barriers of a classroom and textbook.
I am blessed and grateful to have been given the opportunity to serve my school as Head Girl and stand in the tall shoes of my seniors before me. I sincerely hope that we are able to make this year, 2023-24, one to be remembered in Loreto history.
