We believe that education is a partnership between home and school and we do our best to keep parents fully informed of their child’s progress. Prospective pupils and their parents are invited to visit the school before the child is enrolled. We arrange meetings for the parents of children in the first School to provide information about teaching methods and to discuss how children can be helped at home. As well as receiving written reports, parents are invited to two Parents’ Days during the school year, in November and June. It is also possible to arrange appointments at the request of the teacher / parent at an Open Evening prior to the Easter Holidays.
In June parents of Year 7 children are invited to discuss entry to secondary schools. There are meetings for parents of children preparing for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion in Year 3, and of Confirmation in Year 7. All parents are welcome to make an appointment to see their child’s teacher or the Headteacher at any time they feel it is necessary.
It is fair to say that Loreto holds a special place in the community. The Loreto Sisters first came to Gibraltar to establish a system of education for girls and have given generously of their time, dedication and affection for the past 170 years. Sisters, pupils, parents, teachers and past pupils all make a contribution to the Loreto community. Generations of pupils attend concerts, sporting fixtures, sacramental celebrations in addition to the traditional ‘Mission Day’ and ‘St Patrick’s Day’ events. This participation and support is vital to ensure our school spirit goes from strength to strength.
