Dear Parents, Friends and Students of Our Lady of Lourdes


Year 6 Faction Captain Speeches: I had the pleasure of being in attendance to watch our Year 6 students present their Faction Captain leadership speeches on Friday 17 February. I can honestly say that we are extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful cohort of aspiring leaders at OLOL. The Faction Captains will be announced at Prayer Assembly (note time below) with a badge presentation on Friday 24 February.  


Ash Wednesday: We commence the season of Lent today with Ash Wednesday. At Mass, students received ashes on their heads as a sign of their desire to change their lives to become more like Jesus. This cross of ashes tells friends and neighbours that we are not perfect, and that we know we are not perfect, but that we are trying to grow more into the people God destined us to be, by loving and serving others as Jesus did.  


Prayer Assemblies: After COVID put a stop to our Prayer Assemblies in 2022, I am pleased that they will be making a return in 2023. At this event, classes will be facilitating prayer for the community and awards will be handed out. We have also decided to trial Prayer Assemblies in the afternoon so Fr Stan will be able to attend. The first Prayer Assembly is on Friday commencing at 2:15pm in the Hall. The Year 6 students will also be presented with their leadership badges at this event. All parents and friends are welcome to attend.     


School Advisory Council Commissioning & Sacrament Enrolment Mass: Last Sunday, members of the School Advisory Council and office bearers from OLOL P&F were commissioned by Fr Stan at the 9am Mass. On behalf of the entire school community, I would like to thank these parents who volunteer to take on roles in support of our school. Students planning on making a Sacrament in 2023 were also in attendance with their families to begin this very special journey.  


OLOL P&F: We had our largest ever attendance (in my time as Principal) at our first OLOL P&F meeting for 2023. The buzz in the room was hopefully a sign of things to come, with all attendees eager to assist in building parent relationships within the school. The minutes from the meeting can be accessed on the website under the ‘Parents & Friends’ tab. The next meeting will be held in Week 3 next term and remember that all parents are part of the P&F and are welcome to attend. 


Staffing News: I am very pleased to announce that Mrs Fiona McDonald, who is currently teaching Science in Mrs Jenaway’s absence, will be continuing in the role until the end of Semester One.  


COVID Reporting: In 2023, COVID-19 community case numbers have remained manageable with no indication of a requirement to return to a Temporary COVID-19 Declaration. For this reason, the Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form and CEWA COVID-19 Portal will be decommissioned on Monday 13 February 2013. Student absences due to COVID-19 must be reported to school via normal attendance procedures. 


Flinders Street Crosswalk: You may have noticed that there is no one manning the crosswalk on Flinders Street. I want to clarify that this is not controlled by the school and is under the jurisdiction of WA Police. In previous discussions with them, I know that they are very short staffed. Fingers crossed they can find a replacement soon. In the meantime, please drive or cross with caution at the crosswalk. If you know of anyone that may be interested in the role, please pass on the following link 


Pupil Free & Revised Term Dates: A reminder that next Friday 3 March is a pupil free day for all students. Staff will be taking part in further professional development on the Talk for Writing program. Students will return to school on Tuesday 7 March after the Labour Day public holiday, which is also Wellness Week. 

As previously mentioned in communication, there have been revised term dates for 2023. Please see revised dates below:     

Term One: Wednesday 1 February – Thursday 6 April 

Term Two: Wednesday 26 April – Friday 30 June 

Term Three: Tuesday 18 July – Thursday 21 September 

Term Four: Tuesday 10 October – Friday 8 December 


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

  • Our awesome P&F for organising the Tears & Tissues for our new Kindy parents on the first day of school and our community Welcome Picnic 
  • Mrs Fusco for stocking up emergency meals for students without lunch 
  • Barry Wood (Class Contact Rep for Year 3) introducing himself to new families on the first day of school making everyone feel welcomed

Kiss and Ride - 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 car park in single line.
  • Stop in single line in front of Year 1, 2, & 3 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.
