Thank you to the wonderful OLOL Parent Group for organising the Mother's Day Stall and raffle on Wednesday 4th May. The children were very excited to buy gifts to give to their lovely Mum's and loved ones this Sunday!
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!
On Friday the 18th March, Our Lady of Lourdes had a mufti day and raised money to support those affected by the recent floods. The students learnt about the impact of the floods and completed a variety of activities to show their support. Our Lady of Lourdes would like to say a special thank you to everyone who donated. This has been our biggest fundraising event raising a HUGE total of $1845.85!!! All proceeds go to the St Vincent de Paul flood appeal.
Thank you to all the families and community members who celebrated the whole school family mass and farewell to our Assistant Principal Mrs Cividin, last Sunday 16th May. We are very grateful for your support. Below are a few photos of the mass and student work samples that were displayed in the hall for you to view. The teachers and students worked very hard to ensure all students had a work sample up to share with you.
Today there was a special welcome back for students as they walked through the gate with a large sign, balloons and bubbles! It is wonderful to have the whole school community back together again after a long time at home. We also had our first whole school Assembly via Zoom and watched a special thank you movie from the Staff to the wonderful Parents and Students for their support during this time. You can see the video on our Parent Portal Page. Click on this story to get the link. Please visit our gallery by clicking here to see the photos of the children's happy faces as they begin their official return back to school.
We continue Term 2 with our new normal. It has been great to see so many of our students gradually returning to school and parents and students alike following the new guidelines. We are now looking forward to having all our students return next Monday.
This morning Mrs Cividin, along with the other members of the Leadership Team, had the pleasure of serving many of our students at the Principal’s Morning Tea. These students achieved a commendable effort grade for all Key Learning Areas in their Semester 2 report. The students enjoyed the experience of being served by the leadership team and they certainly enjoyed serving them!
Faith in Action Presentation: This term, as a part of our school Mission Goal, each grade has had the opportunity to unpack the scripture passage John 13:34-35. Not only have the students been able to identify the key message of the passage but they have also been able to reflect the message through their actions. After Recess on Friday June 28, each grade will be presenting their response to the whole school. The children who are a part of our Faith In Action team (FIAT) will be leading this presentation with Miss Sharleen Espiritu (our FIAT leader). Everyone is warmly invited to this presentation to witness how each grade has responded to this Scripture.
