Head Girl's Message

"And I'm out with lanterns, looking for myself." -Emily Dickinson

Each child that enters the gates of St. Agnes’ Loreto Day School is unaware of the capability she holds towards making a mark in this world. St. Agnes’ has guided these children with lanterns into the grand abyss of undiscovered potential and has promoted holistic development towards making the child one with her mind, body and spirit.

I feel humbled to have started my journey here as a little girl, for every opportunity I have had to excel, for every encouraging word to help me stand whenever I stumbled and finally for the opportunity to serve as the Head Girl of St. Agnes’ Loreto Day School for the session 2023-24. Gratitude, confidence, self-discipline, compassion for others and the ability to work hard are some of the precious values a St. Agnes’ girl will always cherish.

In a world gyrating in unrest, torn apart by war, disease and discrimination, we carry a legacy, one started more than four centuries ago by our founder, Mary Ward, which has transcended time and differences in its strife towards justice and integrity for all humankind. The 'Just Soul Values’ of Mary Ward, that is Freedom, Justice and Sincerity form the very foundation and a manifesto for life that all of us are inspired to live by. I am certain that these are the values and ethics which have made us what we are today, confident, capable, compassionate and fair minded women of our society.

As the feelings of responsibility, honour and contentment reside in me and so does the memory of the legends this tradition of excellence has created, my only message to each and every Agnesian is that:

"No matter what anyone tells you, words and ideas can change the world."

Drop the armour that protects you, love the parts of you that nobody claps for and venture out with your ideas.
