Programs

Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak provides a range of Programs that complement our Academic and Pastoral offerings. 

Programs at Loreto Toorak provide opportunity for students to engage in various activities during their school day, as well as before and after school. Our Programs aim to create challenging and enriching learning experiences outside of the classroom, with the aim of developing creative and resilient young women.

These Programs are an integral aspect of a Loreto Toorak education, shaping students’ resilience, leadership skills and providing formative opportunities for learning.  Research suggests that participation in Programs within schools, outside of academic class time, enhances student connection and wellbeing whilst also improving focus and academic achievement. With this in mind, we encourage our Loreto Toorak students to participate in a variety of Programs each term as part of their holistic development as young leaders within our community. 

Rathfarnham students have a rich and diverse range of Programs. These include interest-based lunchtime Clubs such as Book Club or Coding Club. Other opportunities include Chess Club and Young Engineers, with Recreational Clubs such as Running and Swimming Club and Music Ensembles such as Lua Burne Young Voices (Year 3 and 4 Choir), Mary Ward Singers (Years 5 and 6 Choir), String Spinners, Woodwind band, and Orchestra, as well as Sport and Performing Art Programs.
