Stage 3 had a great time on Thursday the 10th of November at their excursion to the city. They got to visit St Mary's Cathedral, do some sketching and had a tour of the Australian Museum. See the Gallery for photos of their adventures!
On Tuesday 1st November we celebrated the feast of All Saints at 9:15am in the Church. We honored those men and women who—whether they’ve been canonized or not—have led lives of heroic virtue that sets an example for all Christians. The saints can help us in our spiritual lives. By praying with the saints, we can grow closer to God.
Thank you to all the staff, students and parents who helped support Mission to Busk afternoon at OLOL. We had so many talented performers that contributed to the success of the day. We raised $923 for Mission Australia! Your generosity and support is greatly appreciated. Click here for photos of the day.
On Wednesday night we had a large group of the 2023 Kindergarten Parents come to OLOL for an information night about their child starting school next year. It was so wonderful having this event in person again. Thank you for all who attended and we are looking forward to seeing your children at their orientation days over the next 2 Wednesdays!

Thank you Parents. 🙏🏻 It is an honour for us to teach and guide your children each day at OLOL 🥰
In Week 1 & 2 Stage 2 went on an exciting excursion to Penrith Lakes. They saw how this area is a sustainable environment for many living organisms. They took part in testing different aspects of the water quality, the identification of the bird life and water life and drove around the massive lake system to experience just how huge this natural environment actually is.
Stage 3 enjoyed an amazing experience on Monday 19th October for their unit on Space this Term: Exploration: The Final Frontier, with an incursion with iSkies Cosmodome. Cosmodome is a mobile digital immersive theatre/planetarium, offering an enthralling IMAX style immersive 3D experience. In addition to the movie, Cosmodome offers a study in space and astronomy in an interactive real-time simulation of the night sky in Stellarium. The students loved the experience!
Wow! What an incredible afternoon! Congratulations to all the boys and girls who performed in the Creative Arts Showcase on the last day of Term 3. The School of Rock band rocked the house, The School Choir were just incredible, Leo, Janelle, Darsan and Lucas blew us away with their incredible piano playing, the Dance Fever performers were wonderful and the Percussion finale performance of Sweet Child o Mine brought the house down! I am so proud of all the boys and girls for their hard work and bravery in sharing their talents today. It's an honour and privelidge getting to teach every student Creative Arts at OLOL. Thank you for making me smile today! Happy holidays! Mrs Willemse 🤩 🎼🎸🎤🪘
What an amazing day we had coming together as a school to think about others to celebrate Socktober. The students got to wear their favourite team jerseys and played a game of soccer using a ball made out of socks, material, plastic and ribbon. It was an interesting experience playing with these balls, like children in Ethiopia do. Students shared that it made them realise how lucky they are to have equipment to play soccer. Thank you to Miss Brownlow, Ms Armstrong and the FIA team for putting together a great day for an amazing cause.
