"Women in time to come will do much "
was the prophetic words of Mary ward, an English lady who was the foundress of the institute of the blessed Virgin Mary. Mary Ward had a great faith
in the capacity of women to do much for the welfare of the society. Inspired by the Vision of Mary Ward and according to her charism, Loreto
sisters opened school all over the globe, to educate and empower the girl-children. Loreto Convent , Darjeeling was established in 1846 and
is one of such school which imparts education of the young mind, heart, body and soul, which helps the children to be integrated personalities
by developing in them strong characters of lovers of truth, respect, loyalty, a sense of justice, honesty and hard working. Along with value
based education, we instill in them social and environmental consciousness which enables them to stand with the marginalizes and weaker section
of the society to work together for justice, Peace and integrity of creation.
I gratefully acknowledge, the valuable contribution made by the Loreto sisters, Teachers, Parents, Students, Friends, Benefactors and well-wishers
for the great institution in the past, making us the beneficiaries of such a rich legacy today . Inspired by our foundress Mary Ward, we
focused on our goal, strengthen by the spirit of community among the management, staff and Parents of Loreto Convent Darjeeling, continue
the noble task of educating the young minds, who are entrusted to our care and thus shaping them as a good human being, better citizen and
a better tomorrow for all to live happily in love, Peace and justice.
