Mary Ward’s vision of education for girls was far in advance of her times Recognizing the significance of education for women and the important rein they would play in society in the future, she chose as her special area of service, the education of girls. We carry on that tradition to the present day and are continually nourished by her spiritual insights. The future of humanity lies in the hands of those who are strong enough to provide coming generations with reasons for living and reasons for hoping” (Vatican II)


We are called as a Loreto School to promote the Glory of God, lovingly discerning God’s will for us in growing freedom, sincerity and justice we endeavour 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 need of our times and flexible enough to re-adjust 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 preferential love of the poor is lived out both in attitudes and structure. In cherishing the most God 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.
