When was the last time you made your way back to Loreto College Coorparoo? Last year? Last decade? Although your school years may be far behind, the friendships that began at Loreto still remain. If you graduated in a year ending in a ‘9 or ‘4, you are celebrating a milestone reunion in 2019. For assistance with planning and obtaining class contact details, please don’t hesitate to contact the College.
Why not commemorate your reunion with a Class Gift?
Annual Senior Past Pupils’ Reunion
Each year, Loreto College Coorparoo has pleasure in welcoming back our senior alumni for a very special reunion – the Loreto College Semester 2 Mass followed by the Senior Past Pupils’ lunch. This is a beautiful occasion, bringing together Loreto ladies celebrating 50 years or more since graduating and our current Loreto girls. Attendees are presented with a small gift blessed by the Parish Priest.
Graduates Contact Details
The Community Engagement Office maintains the alumni database and can provide contact details via reunion organisers. The accuracy of our data is essential for future records in general, so we ask your assistance to provide us with any new or updated names, addresses, mobile numbers and emails.
Don’t forget to share your event with the community by sending a summary (maximum 200 words) and photos for inclusion in our media gallery and our bi-yearly publication ‘The Chronicle’.

8 Steps to holding a successful Reunion
Organise a planning committee. Have one central point of contact plus a few willing friends to share the workload.
Who will attend? Contact the College to provide you with a list of names from your alum year. Consider whether you wish to invite teachers and any other special guests. Are partners and children also to be invited?
How will people pay? On the day or before the event? Think about setting up a bank account to collect money for your reunion. Alternatively, you may contact us to utilise the College’s TryBooking system.
Choose a date, venue, menu and expense. Consider who lives where; do some need to travel from a-far? Should you avoid school holidays or long-weekends? Is the end of year a busy time for most people? Venue options can be endless but should be considered carefully. Many reunions are relaxed affairs however you and your graduating class may like to ‘glam’ it up! Options can range from simple picnics, finger food and drinks at a hotel or a class-mates’ home. Please refer to the Loreto College Coorparoo guidelines for holding reunions at private residences. Or you may prefer high-tea, a day at the races or even a weekend away! Reunion events are also welcomed on College grounds; please contact us early to arrange.
Invitations. Send as soon as possible! You may like to ask invitees to bring copies of old photographs or memorabilia for display. (If they are willing, these can be passed to the College for archiving). Don’t forget to ask if anyone has special dietary, transport or seating requirements. If you haven’t done so already, please contact us to include your event in ‘The Chronicle’ and ensure we can update your classmates details in the database for next time.
Name tags. Jog everyone’s memory with name tags, including maiden names.
Photographs. Take lots of photographs! You may like to provide everyone copies post your event. Don’t forget to send images to the Development Office.
Relax! After all your efforts, remember to enjoy yourself and toast to newly-re-found friendships.
