Excellence in the Business of Education

Loreto College was proudly awarded the 2016 Federation Business School e-Commerce and Online Award in the 2016 Federation Business School Commerce Ballarat Business Excellence Awards. This is the third consecutive year that Loreto College has been a finalist in the Awards and the second time that Loreto College has been presented as the winner of the e-Commerce and Online Category. We have also been a proud category sponsor of these important community business awards.

From humble beginnings in 1875, Loreto College now employs over 140 staff and has just aroudn 920 enrolled students. Loreto College proudly recognises and acts on the fact that not only do we need to be great teachers, we need to strive for excellence in our organisational management, business practices, religious values, human resource management, regulatory compliance, community relations, environmental sustainability and marketing and development. Loreto College is proud to adopt and promote sound business practices that support and enhance our core business of education.

Today Loreto Schools are part of an international network. In 1875 Mother Gonzaga Barry brought the Institute (ibvm) to Australia and Loreto College Ballarat was the first of many schools that she established across Australia. Her influence on primary, secondary and tertiary education was profound. Moreover, her initiatives to improve the quality of teacher training and in-service went far beyond Loreto. At Loreto College Ballarat, we will continue our core business of providing a Catholic education for girls – knowing that our values, facilities, education and business practices; as well as our current and future students and staff are highly regarded and well prepared for the world. Educating and empowering young women for their global future is as relevant today as it was in 1875.
