Dear Parents and Friends of Loreto Nedlands

Welcome back to Term Three. I hope that you have all had a restful holiday with your loved ones and are ready to begin the term refreshed and renewed. We were excited to welcome our newest Loreto Nedlands family member, Donnelly, to our school this week. We can already see the benefits of having a wellness dog at school and look forward to many years of paw-some fun with Donnelly! We also welcome Mrs Peta Santella to Loreto Nedlands. Mrs Santella is our new Finance Manager and the lucky ‘mum’ to Donnelly.

Orlando, in Year Six, will be representing RPYC and Australia in “The International Friendship All Japan Junior Yacht Club Regatta 2022” from 5 -7 August, which ties in with International Friendship Day. At the opening ceremony, all the children from the countries represented exchange small gifts. We wish Orlando the best of luck and look forward to hearing about his experience.

We welcome siblings, new families and returning families to our Loreto Nedlands family this term. Charlie, Reese, Lucas and Mario (Pre Kindy), Florence (Kindergarten), Harry (Year 1), Luke, Charley and Theo (Year 2), and Jack (Year 3). We wish all these students and their families a warm welcome.

This week, we welcomed our Year Six students back to school after their amazing camp in Canberra. The students had a fabulous time in our Nation’s Capital, visiting Parliament House, National Arboretum, Questacon, National Dinosaur Museum, Australian War Memorial, AIS, National Portrait Gallery and Corin Forest for a fun-filled snow day! I’d like to acknowledge and thank Mrs Lori Coenen and Mr Scott McCallum for assisting in the overall supervision and running of our days away. We had such a memorable time together, and the Year Sixes represented the school positively, demonstrating wonderful leadership skills.
