2022 Kindergarten and Year 1 Welcome BBQ

Last Thursday Our Lady of Lourdes hosted a barbeque to welcome the newest additions to our OLOL Community - our Kindergarten and Year One students and their families. It was wonderful to see so many happy faces. Parents had a chance to meet one another and our Kindergarten and Year 1 students played with new found friends, teachers, and Year 6 student leaders. The outdoor games, dress ups and colouring corner proved popular with all students and a delicious sausage sizzle was catered for by our Parent Group. A big thank you to our Parent Group for organising the barbeque and to our Student Leaders for helping to make the night such a fun and memorable one. Thank you to the parents of the student leaders who enabled their children to attend. Finally, a big thank you to Ms Byrnes, Mrs Ferguson, Mrs Messina, Mrs Demeterio, Miss Douglas, Miss Lee, Miss Mortimer, Mrs Willemse and Miss Schrader for their hard work in preparing the games and activities. It was a wonderful night!

2022 Easter Mass

In the 1st week back at school in Term 2, we will be celebrating the Easter Mass in the Church with the students in our parish of Our Lady of Lourdes at 9:15am. This Mass has a long and lively tradition and due to COVID, we have been unable to celebrate as a community in the church over the last two years up until now. We are very excited to begin this tradition again and we are looking forward to celebrating with families who are able to attend.

2022 Holy Week

This year as Easter is on 17th April, we celebrate Holy Week the week after school finishes. However, at OLOL, the students will be reflecting on Holy Week events in school Week 11. From Tuesday- Friday, all grades will help prepare an aspect of the key events of Holy Week in a Liturgy for the school. These Liturgies will be live streamed for parents who cannot attend. Please go to our Gallery to see the wonderful photos of the events of Holy Week.

2022 Project Compassion A Shoe In Parade

On Friday 11th March OLOL had our Project Compassion Fundraising Event, "A Shoe In". The students learnt about children their age who do not own shoes, and need to walk over 10 kilometres each day to collect water for their families. The students then found the oldest shoe in their household, they wrote about the history of their shoes and drew an amazing picture of them. These artworks were paraded around the school to help raise awarenessand funds for these people in need. It was great to see all students getting involved and having parents back at school again for the first time in a long time, to watch the event. So far we have raised a massive $460! Thank you to everyone who participated in the event and a huge thanks to those who have donated. You can still donate here:
