Loreto College Marryatville is the only all girls Catholic Boarding School in Adelaide. The boarding precinct is home to approximately 55 girls from country South Australia interstate and overseas. Despite our proven record of high achievement at Loreto pastoral Care is acclaimed by parents to be our greatest strength. Nowhere is this more so than in our Boarding School where students are encouraged to develop initiative and self-reliance and to act both independently and responsibly. Boarding School life provides the opportunity to establish life-long friendships and enables each student to develop qualities of resourcefulness leadership and maturity. Boarders are cared for by Senior Staff and their Junior Assistants who have empathy with and understanding of the special needs of young people. The senior girls take much care in ensuring that younger students feel a sense of belonging at the Boarding School. A "Little Sister" programme encourages a very comfortable and caring relationship between older and younger students.
Loreto has a rich tradition of strong community spirit made good with family ties over generations long lasting friendships and energies given to help the School and each other. Social and fundraising events are held throughout the year by students parents past parents and OS groups. For new parents this begins with a warm welcome by the Principal and P&F together at our ever popular New Parents’ Cocktail Evening held in the beautiful heritage gardens. So begins what is an exciting and rewarding journey as new friends are found and opportunities taken to get involved in the life of the School.
