Description

Loreto College was founded in the rural Victorian city of Ballarat by the Catholic Loreto Sisters as a school for girls in 1875. The photograph is of the gate at the entrance to the College grounds. The brick gate is in the Gothic architectural style with pointed arches and crenellation. The Loreto Order was founded in England in 1609 with the aim of establishing schools for girls that would tend to their spiritual and intellectual needs.
