Student Life

Prefects and leadership

Loreto Girls Rumbek has a formidable student council headed by a head girl – Martha. It is the prefect body in the school.

The student council acts as a link between the students and teachers as well as the administration. They are vital in ensuring the participation of students in the learning activities within the school.

Participation of the selected students as prefects in the student council is part of the mission of the school which includes leadership training and empowering our girls. Our girls are given opportunity to demonstrate their leadership skills and confidence as they guide others.

The student council also acts as a role model to the student body whereby other students learn from them.

The student council are under the guidance of Mr. Joseph Omondi in collaboration with the entire staff for the betterment of nurturing leadership skills and qualities in our girls so as they realize their full potential as leaders of tomorrow.


Loreto secondary school is committed to creating an all-round student who not only excel in academics but also in sports.

The school provides a variety of games including: Basketball, Football, Volleyball, Netball and also indoor games such as badminton and table tennis among others.

We have highly motivated students who also participate in athletics

Given the nature of sports it is not surprising that our students have inspiring and motivational things to say about hard work, leadership, perseverance, winning and much more.

For Loreto Girls, sports is the epitome hard work and dedication.

"It's not the will to win that matters-everyone has that. It is the will to prepare to win that matters".

School Families

The students are grouped into ten families.

The number ten originated from number of the pioneer students in Loreto Secondary School who were ten in number.

The senior 4 become mothers of senior 3. Senior 3 mothers of senior 2, and senior 2 mothers of senior 1.

This family allocation has helped a lot in maintaining discipline in school, making work easier for teachers and building strong ties among the students who happen to come from different tribes in South Sudan.

These family ties continue even after school. The students learn how to be responsible and mature since they are able to care for one another and solve many issues among themselves.
