Origin

Loreto Convent Entally was founded in 1847 under the management of the Sisters of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Loreto Sisters) which was founded by Mary Ward in the 17th Century. She recognized the significance of the education for women and the important role they play in society.

Although the primary purpose is the education of Catholic girls, students of other religious denominations, irrespective of caste, creed and community, are also accepted. The aim of the School is to give its pupils a sound moral education while devoting special attention to their intellectual, social and physical development.

In our school, education is for the wholeness and dignity of each child. The dignity of each student comes from being a person-

  • - Created in God's image
  • - free to respond
  • - striving for excellence achieved at the level of her own potential.

We value the student as a unique person who is already gifted, who has a Past, Present and Future. Whom God has called by a name of her own.

This school sees the values of Integrity, Justice, Freedom and Love as essential in the educational thrust. Therefore, parents who intend to have their children educated here would need to be convinced of the importance of these values and be prepared to make the necessary sacrifices to live by them.

The special thrust of our school is to cherish the most deprived of God's people and to enable them to take their place with dignity among others.
