Flashback Friday - Heritage Gates

Our Heritage Gates have missed having students pour in from buses and onto the front drive! They are a special part of our School and its history.

Many a Loreto girl has walked through our front gates - en route to prayer in our Chapel, fierce competition on our tennis courts, a return to the Boarding House from a weekend with friends, or a visit to our chickens in the Ag Plot. Lots of learning, fun and community-building happen within these gates!

The wrought iron gates and sandstone palisade are one of the original heritage elements of the School grounds. Interestingly, they had to be shifted backwards when Pennant Hills Road was widened in the 1990s; they did maintain the same pathway and front drive during the relocation.

What are your happy memories within these gates?
