A Royal Honour for Loreto Toorak
Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak has been included in the official commemorative publication for the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration which took take place at Windsor Castle in the United Kingdom last week.
This special publication highlights the Queen’s life, her dedication to the Commonwealth and international affairs, her involvement with the armed forces and her love of horses.
In addition to celebrating the life and reign of The Queen, the publication showcases a selection of organisations in the UK and Commonwealth, or with strong ties to Britain. These organisations are drawn from educational, cultural, social, technological and business spheres, and include Royal Charter holders, Royal Warrant holders and recipients of the Queen’s Awards. Collectively, they provide insights into the Commonwealth today and into the UK’s role in the wider world.
In the area of education, Loreto Toorak has been selected to appear in the publication.
“We were honoured when approached by publisher St James’s House with an invitation to appear in the event’s official commemorative album,” says Dr Susan Stevens Principal Loreto Toorak. “We were invited based on our good editorial fit for the project, and it was a thrill to be regarded as one of the best schools in the Commonwealth and be part of this special historic celebration.”
Loreto Toorak is highly regarded for its academic, sporting, musical, pastoral care and cultural programs which educate young women who work towards positive social change.
Asked about the participation of Loreto Toorak, Richard Freed of St James’s House says: “As the official publisher for The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration, we have been entrusted with telling the Queen’s story. We were also tasked with finding suitable editorial partners for the book, and we were delighted when Loreto Toorak agreed to help us mark this important milestone.”
More than 25,000 VVIPs, VIPs, guests and spectators attended glamorous celebrations for the Queen to help her celebrate this special occasion. The commemorative album as well as television coverage was organised to enable The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration to reach an even wider audience. The official commemorative album will also provide a lasting souvenir.
“Our commemorative album will be presented as a gift to VVIP and VIP guests at each of the four evenings,” says Richard Freed, Chief Executive of St James’s House. “Copies of the book will also be distributed to key figures and organisations around the world including heads of state, ambassadors and leaders of industry.”
