What We Offer

Give your child the best opportunity to develop academically, spiritually and socially.


All members at Our Lady of Lourdes Primary aim to work collaboratively to ensure that we are an authentic Catholic school, committed to quality teaching and learning. All individuals are valued and the development and dignity of every child is nurtured and encouraged.

Our school proclaims Jesus and his good news by example, and through celebration and our mission statement. We are an active faith community and are part of our local parish church community. Our school is a place where we aim to live out our school motto, To Know, To Love and To Serve, daily.

Excellent opportunities are provided for our students to develop academically and spiritually within a caring community. We are proud of the quality relationships that exist between students, parents, staff and parish.


Staff

Excellent educators

Students at Our Lady of Lourdes benefit from a team of professional and committed educators.

Their teachers are lifelong learners themselves, and therefore know what it takes to develop a love of learning in your child. They meet each child where they are on their learning journey, and challenge and support them to become the best learner they can be. OLOL students are taught to think critically, solve real-world problems and take responsibility for their own learning.

Our students are at the centre of all we do at OLOL, shown through our commitment to:

  • fostering quality relationships
  • treating students with respect and understanding
  • encouraging independence, responsibility and self-discipline
  • providing a safe and caring environment

Relevant and personalised learning

Our Lady of Lourdes Primary is committed to providing the widest possible education and the children are exposed to a wide range of experiences as they explore the six key learning areas of Religious Education, Mathematics, English, Science and Technology, Human Society and Its Environment and Creative and Practical Arts.

We see the importance of developing the whole person and providing quality teaching and learning to enable students to become lifelong learners. Learning at Our Lady of Lourdes Primary uses flexible, innovative and creative teaching practices, coupled with modern technology to motivate our students to become the best learners they can be.
