Message from the CEO
Dear Friends and supporters of Loreto Ministries,
Entering our fifth year in operation we have made great progress in providing support and access to high quality, inclusive and caring education and offering leadership in response to contemporary needs.
We have a lot to be thankful for and as a growing organisation are delighted to be operating with our full complement, including dedicated staff who work across both Loreto Province and Loreto Ministries:
Finance and Business – Alison Brown
Mission – Anne Muirhead
Communications – Elouise Hahn
Executive Assistant to the CEO – Eva Dixon
Human Resources, Risk & Safety – Patricia Quinn
Education – Paul Ould
In line with our mission and vision we are continuing to work hard to develop and refine our internal policies and procedures. Whether revamping Loreto’s Governance Manual, supporting the development of Loreto’s safeguarding policies, working in the areas of educational research, risk management, governance, we have collaborated with various stakeholders, boards and committees to support the Loreto educational mission across Australia and South East Asia.
Loreto Ministries has developed induction processes for Board Directors, Board Chairs and our new Loreto Centre staff. We have generated extensive resources for our schools and worked with staff groups, boards and student leadership groups on topics related to the Loreto Schools’ Year of Sincerity. As a Leadership Team we have started to explore Loreto writings on education, which has been both illuminating and challenging.
This year we have welcomed on board our new Executive Director for Loreto Vietnam, Nguyen Viet Dung, new Principal of Loreto Normanhurst, Marina Ugonotti, are preparing to lead a pilgrimage to the lands of Mary Ward, host a Colloquium for all board members, organise a national speaking tour of Mary Ward scholar, Elaine McDonald, and explore future possibilities for Loreto education in this land.
We look forward to another successful year in 2019 and want to thank you for your ongoing support.
CEO, Loreto Ministries
