Head girl's Message
“Loreto’s name each girl reveres, And holds it ever blest.”

The flag pole bearing the school flag tightly grasped in my hand and the badge shining on my collar, I stood facing the enormity of our school hall as the Head Girl of Loreto House, and it was then that I realised that somewhere in the course of the journey of twelve beautiful years, we had become the manifestations of the dreams that we had seen and strived to pursue.
As a little girl, I had once entered Loreto House trembling, intimidated by the new world opening its doors to me, but now, with this responsibility and honour resting on my shoulders, I know that this world is my own, it represents familiarity and stability, and I get the privilege to serve my school and give back to the institution which has raised me.
I now stand before my school, as someone who has been shaped by the values taught by my Principal and teachers; service, kindness, justice and humility, to be upheld and cherished all throughout our term as Student Council and this great adventure called life.
I am truly grateful and honoured that my school and teachers have found me capable and worthy to serve the school as Head Girl, and I hope to carry on the legacy that my seniors have left to inspire me. To my school, my place of pride and my safe haven that is Loreto House, I, on behalf of the Student Council of the academic year 2024-2025 promise to make you proud !
