Flashback Friday - Primary School

Did you know that boys used to attend Loreto Normanhurst from Kindy to Year 2? Our Primary School has played such a joyful, influential part throughout our history.

Our Primary School has played such a joyful, influential part throughout our history. Many of our alumnae will have started their time at Loreto Normanhurst as primary school students. Indeed, among our ex-student community, we have men who were educated here from Kindy to Year 2! 

Boys could attend Loreto Normanhurst in junior years until the Primary School was closed for a time in 1982. In 2015, the Primary School reopened to girls in Years 5 and 6 as the 'Teresa Ball Primary Centre.'

This year's graduating class (Class of 2021) includes the first cohort of students in recent times who began in Year 5 or Year 6 at Loreto Normanhurst.

Enjoy some photos of junior students from the 1950s to the 1970s in the gallery below.
