Principal's Welcome

Welcome to our school website. I hope that our website allows you to get a sense of some of the wonderful things that happen at our school. Of course, if you are a prospective parent looking for a school for your child, I highly recommend you come along for a tour so that you can see the school in action – the great learning happening in classrooms, the interactions between staff and students, the confidence and respect that our students demonstrate. We are happy for you to come for a tour at any time – please ring the office to make sure we have someone available to lead you.

At Our Lady’s we take great pride in our welcoming community. Our current school theme of ‘It Takes A Village To Raise A Child’ reflects this. We also take great pride in our fantastic children who are motivated to learn and treat all others as they would like to be treated.

Over the last 6 years, we have had substantial refurbishment works carried out so that we now have very inviting learning spaces across the whole school. Our school is 86 years old, but it has modern facilities conducive to 21st century learning. 

ICT is used to enhance learning throughout the school. We are constantly upgrading the ICT equipment available to students and staff, with an emphasis on using equipment, tools and software to build learning capacity, not to use for its own sake.

Wellbeing is critical to how we operate. We know that happy, healthy children are better able to learn and relate to each other, so a great deal of time and energy is put into the wellbeing of each child.

I look forward to meeting with you and helping you with any queries you may have about our school.
