A huge congratulations to all the boys and girls in Years 3-6 who took part in the Dance Fever Interschool Challenge in Homebush last night. It was an amazing experience! We won the Year 3 overall trophy for their Partner Dancing and many 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons for the Foxtrot and Cha-Cha. Our "Under the Sea" Showdance was fantastic. So proud of all your efforts with extra practices in the past week- it really paid off. Such an awesome night! Go OLOL!
Last Tuesday the 21st of June the students enjoyed a performance called "Music in My Suitcase" from the Mara! Band from the company Musica Viva. It was an amazing performance and experience for the students to see live music, learn about other cultures and languages and learn about different instruments, all while singing catchy songs! Special congratulations to Ariana in Year 2 and Natasha in Year 5 for being brave enough to teach Mara how to count to 5 in their cultural languages of Nepalese and Hindi, which she then performed as part of their song, "Bir Mumdur" which the students learnt in Creative Arts lessons before the performance. The students all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and lots of fun was had by all!
At OLOL we celebrated Catholic Schools Week in Week 7 of Term 1. Each grade had turns sharing the learning from their classes during Zoom Assemblies. We also gathered as a school for a Liturgy via Zoom with Father Henry. It was lovely to gather to remember how fortunate we are to be at such a wonderful Catholic School.
Today we commemorated a very special occasion for our very special Principal- Ms Keiran Byrnes. She is celebrating an amazing milestone which we think would be a diocese record. Ms Byrnes is celebrating her 40th school camp she has attended in all her years of teaching! We gifted Ms Byrnes with a special teddy bear from the Royal Australian Mint for her to keep always in her office. Congratulations Ms Byrnes! You are amazing!
