This week as we welcomed in the new school term, we also stopped to celebrate International Teachers Day. We recognise that the impact teachers make extends beyond lessons in the classroom, and continues well after Normo girls leave our school.
Our first teachers were the Loreto Sisters, who taught all aspects of the curricula themselves as well as caring for boarders. By the 1920’s, the Sisters welcomed ‘Visiting Masters’ to teach more specialised subjects for a term or for one-off guest lectures. Over time, more 'lay teachers' were brought on as educators, many of whom were once Normo students themselves (including some of our current staff!).
Today, we’re very fortunate to have a strong team of skilled educators dedicated to student learning, wellbeing and building a community of felicity. Their adaptability, creativity and continuing support of our Normo girls during periods of online learning has been impressive to say the least, and is much appreciated by our School community.
Can you remember the teachers during your time at LN? What are some of your fondest memories involving your teachers? Maybe you were inspired to become a teacher yourself?
