2018 Annual Giving Appeal
A key strategy of Loreto College is to provide an environment and facilities that inspire and maximise learning. To do this we need to have flexible and innovative teaching and learning spaces across the entire campus. These re-imagined learning spaces will support a dynamic culture of thinking and learning and inspire a love of learning in all our students.
Transforming Classroom Spaces to Support Learning Outcomes
Our goal is to transform the existing classrooms in the Crescentia Building, main teaching block, to create these learning environments.
The most recent building development at Loreto reflects this. “Cruci” is a leading example of excellence in learning space design. Whilst the teaching spaces in this building are superior in every way, the demand for their use cannot be met. Quite simply, we need more teaching spaces which incorporate these key design features.
With your support, we will be creating spaces that encourage students to articulate and visibly share their thinking as they learn from and with one another, thereby increasing their collaboration and engagement.
An Opportunity to Leave Your Mark
In addition to this specific goal, we also have an ongoing appeal to provide bursaries for students whose families are facing unexpected hardship or loss. In order to minimise the impact on students’ education, Loreto bursaries can be offered to families in adverse circumstances, at the Principal’s discretion.
Whether you choose to direct your gift towards enhancing the teaching and learning spaces or towards the student bursaries, together we will build a stronger Loreto.
I hope you will consider making your tax-deductible gift before the end of this financial year. Participation is key to delivering our vision for educational excellence, and whatever you can afford to give, I truly thank you.
