Loreto College

Loreto College has contributed the funds towards The Mary Ward Bursary which is a full tuition bursary presented to one Year 11 student every year, whose current family and/or financial circumstances prevent them from sending their daughter to a Catholic secondary school for her two senior years. Over the past two years, with the generous support of the Chamber, Loreto has been fortunate to give two young ladies a head start on their journeys to studying accounting and criminology. To accept the donation was Olivia Rogers the College's 2016 Co-Captain.
