Dear Parents, Friends and Students of Our Lady of Lourdes

Sacrament of Holy Communion: Last Sunday, we came together as a parish community to celebrate students from our school and the parish receiving the Sacrament of First Holy Communion. Each year when I attend this beautiful Sacrament, it brings back memories of my own, receiving Jesus in the consecrated bread and wine in front of my family, friends, teachers and parish community. Thank you to our entire catechist team, especially Mrs Cruttenden, for preparing the students and the Mass. Making the occasion extra special was it being Fr Stan’s final Mass at OLOL. We wish him all the best for his move to St Luke’s. Fr George will be administrator for the parish until a new Parish Priest is appointed. Congratulations to the First Holy Communicants.   


Sacrament of Confirmation Family Workshop: A reminder to all parents who have a child receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation this year, the Family Workshop is on Tuesday 20 June at 5:45pm in the School Hall.  


School Compliance Review (Audit): Last Wednesday 7 June, our school was audited as part of what is known as a ‘School Compliance Review’. This process occurs every five years where the school must demonstrate it meets all educational standards to remain open as an educational institution. I am very pleased to say that we received very affirming feedback from the external auditor and she was very impressed with our school operations. I would like to personally thank everyone who was involved in the process as it was a very large job, however, our MJR TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More) philosophy really came to the fore in achieving a very successful outcome.    


Staffing Update: Please see below an update on staffing at OLOL: 

  • Charlotte Robinson is our new Social Worker and will commence her time at OLOL on Thursday 22 June 
  • Brian Dobbie will be our new Science Specialist Teacher for PP-6. He will commence this role at the beginning of Term Three 
  • Mr Dobbie will also be teaching our Year Six class on Mon-Tues during Term Three while Mr Gray is on leave 
  • Jessica Giorgio will be picking up an extra day teaching Year 6 Wednesday – Friday next term while Mr Gray is on leave    
  • Louise Baldock will be Acting Assistant Principal from Week 3 – 10 (Term Three) while Mr Gray is on leave 


Reports: As class teachers are busy preparing reports, I thought it would be beneficial to supply some key points about reporting from the School Curriculum & Standards Authority WA. Please see the information below and I will provide further information in the Week 10 newsletter. 



Parents will receive 2 formal academic reports this year: 

July – Mid-year Report 

December – End of Year Report 



This report provides parents with a ‘snapshot in time’ of how their child is progressing in relation to the end of year achievement standard for each learning area for their year level. The grade provided is taking into account the curriculum which has been taught and assessed to that point in time. 



This report provides parents with an overview of how their child has progressed, across the entire year, in relation to the end of year Achievement Standard for each learning area for their year level. The grade provided is taking into account the curriculum which has been taught and assessed across the entire year, not just Semester 2. 



Congratulations Miss Geiles: Over the long weekend, we received the very exciting news that Miss Jess Geiles (Year 5 Teacher) got engaged! On behalf of the entire community, I would like to congratulate Jess and her now fiancée Danny. 


Sacred Saints Carnival: On Thursday 22 June, students from our Year 5 & 6 classes will be participating in a fun sporting carnival against other schools in our region. The annual Sacred Saints Carnival sees students participate in AFL, Soccer and Netball at Noranda Sporting Complex. We are hoping for a clear day to showcase some wonderful supporting talent across our schools. 


MJR – Spirit of Jesus ‘Shout Outs’: Here are a few ‘SOJ Shouts Outs’ from around the community this past fortnight: 

  • Fr George celebrating Fr Stan’s farewell and final whole school Mass at OLOL 
  • Year 6 boys ensuring a fellow student was included in their soccer game and ‘bending’ the rules a little to make sure he felt success 
  • Joao Pedro (Year 6) making sure a teacher knew that a younger student had hurt themself while playing, even with a language barrier  
  • Deb Bennett (mother of Havana & Brax) from XTEND Barre Osborne Park, for leading our school in a morning fitness session during Wellness Week 

God Bless and stay classy OLOL

Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD)

Every year, all schools in Australia participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD). The NCCD process requires schools to identify information already available in the school about supports provided to students with disability. These relate to legislative requirements under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005, in line with the NCCD guidelines (2019).

The NCCD will have no direct impact on your child and your child will not be involved in any testing process. The school will provide data to the Australian Government in such a way that no individual student will be able to be identified – the privacy and confidentiality of all students is ensured. All information is protected by privacy laws that regulate the collection, storage and disclosure of personal information. To find out more about these matters, please refer to the Australian Government’s Privacy Policy (

If you have met with your child’s teacher and signed an Individual Education Plan, your child is included in the OLOL NCCD data. If you have any further questions about NCCD, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Vivante

ICAS Assessments Years 5-6 (optional)

This year, OLOL will be offering students in Years 5 and 6 the opportunity to participate in the annual ICAS Assessments. Assessments will be offered in Mathematics and English. If you would like your child to be involved in ICAS Assessments in 2023, please collect a letter from their classroom teacher explaining the process involved with purchasing the assessments, how you can make payment, how the tests will be administered and the permission slip.  If you have any further questions about ICAS Assessments, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Vivante at 

Father Stan's Farewell and First Holy Communion

Farewell Father Stan, we wish you all the very best!

Congratulations to our Year 4 Holy Communicants, we hope you enjoyed your very special day!

Italian Festival 2023 Primary School Student Competition

Our students took part in the 2023 Italian Festival Primary School Student Competition. They had to research and design a ‘Carnevale’ costume for a figurine, describe their costume in Italian and give their character a name.

Ashley (Yr 5) was the WA winner for her year group and Jayden, also in Year 5,  received a “Highly Commended” for his entry.

They attended a ceremony at the Italo-Australian Welfare and  Cultural Centre Inc, where they were acknowledged for their achievements.

Congratulations to both students.

Kiss and Ride and Parking - Parents Please Read!

‘Kiss & Ride’ drive through operates from 8.30 to 8.45am every morning and every afternoon from 3.00 to 3.15pm.


  • There is a one-way direction for entry and exit at all times.
  • All cars to drive up the side lane of the church at no more than 5kmph.
  • Proceed through the basketball courts in single line.
  • Stop in single line in front of Year 2, 3, & 1 classrooms to drop off or pick up your child.
  • This is a continuous moving single lane of cars and you are NOT TO PARK OR GET OUT OF YOUR CAR. This is necessary to ensure safety of all and to maintain the flow of traffic.
  • In the afternoons staff will direct the children to the appropriate car.
  • After dropping off or picking up your child proceed in single file to the double gates, turning LEFT ONLY onto Flinders Street.
  • No parking or pick-up at the front of church
  • No exit at any time via the church laneway.
  • Delaying your arrival in the afternoons by 5 minutes or so may help to reduce your waiting time and ease congestion. Children are supervised by staff until 3.15pm.


Kindergarten & Pre-Primary parents are allowed to park on the basketball courts to drop off and pick up your child from Kindy/Pre-Primary. However, you must use the Kiss and Drive route and adhere to the ONE WAY SYSTEM and NO OVERTAKING. You must join the single lane of cars and TURN LEFT onto Flinders Street.

  • We ask all people to be patient and that inevitably, as with all schools, drop off and pick up time is extremely busy and one would expect to have to wait.


Happy Birthday

A very Happy Birthday to all our students. We hope you all have a wonderful day!

Brian Njoku, Samuel Mumba, Samyar Ghorbanpour, Inuka Bandara, Elsa Lai, Miranda Palma, Charlotte Menchetti, Theo Krstic, Faith Sino, Sofia Piccininni and Eason Li.

Ring Pulls

We are still collecting the ring pulls from soft drink cans. These are donated to Brother Ollie, who uses them to assist in making wheelchairs for children around the world affected by disease and landmines.

Please bring them to your class teacher.

Thank you

St Vincent de Paul Clothing Bin

We have a St Vincent de Paul clothing bin which is located near the Flinders St gate on the oval side of the school. You are able to donate all your unwanted good quality clothing, manchester, books, kitchenware (no glass items) and childrens’ toys that you no longer needed. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the front office.

Battery Recycling

Recycling batteries is good for the environment. It keeps them out of landfill, where heavy metals may leak into the ground when the battery casing corrodes, causing soil and water pollution. If batteries are incinerated with household waste, the heavy metals in them may cause air pollution.
Remember that you can recycle your household batteries at school. Please deposit batteries in the specially provided container in the front office.

We can all play our part to reduce landfill and help save the planet.
