It’s said that every journey starts with a single step. At Loreto College, that step leads to the development of strong, passionate and confident girls and young women.

Loreto is an all-girls’ day and boarding school in Adelaide’s inner eastern suburbs and caters for students ranging in age from Early Learning to Year 12. The school’s belief in the importance of education honours Loreto’s 400-year-old global tradition encouraging girls and young women to develop strong values so they make a positive difference to their world. Research shows the benefits of an all-girls’ education include challenging gender stereotypes, developing leadership skills and developing a confident voice. Loreto’s strong reputation for academic and sporting success is testament to these advantages.

Book now for our September and October tours and see how Loreto can give your daughter the start to the journey she deserves.

  • Find it at: Corner Richmond & Torrens Streets, Richmond St, College Park Twelftree Reserve is a gorgeous College Park Playground and perfect to take the younger kids to burn up some energy or explore in the outdoors, and would make a perfect place to have a kids birthday party. There are two slightly separated, bark chipped playgrounds - about 15m from each other. The first caters for walking to 3 year olds, while the second caters for slightly older kids (say, 3-8 years). For the littlies, there is a stepped ramp with platform and toddler slide, a fire truck easily accessible for walkers and a number of spring rockers which my 2 year old could manage to scale and rock to his heart's content. In the older area there are 4 swings (2 'baby' enclosed swings and 2 regular swings), a larger slide with ladder and a couple of 2 and 4 way see-saws. There is also a half court basketball court with backboard and hoop, 2 free use gas BBQs and a water bubbler. There are numerous seating options, but only 3 with tables.
