We would love to welcome you to Our Lady of Lourdes School.
Every day is Open Day at Our Lady of Lourdes. Please contact the office on 9729 3411 to arrange an appointment to meet with the Principal and for a personal tour of the school. All families are welcome at Our Lady’s School.
Application forms must be submitted in the year prior to starting school for all children seeking enrolment. These forms are available from the office if you wish to drop in, or contact us and we will post one out. Enrolment forms may also be downloaded from this website.
Letters of acceptance are sent out by the end of June.
Following confirmation of enrolment, parents will be notified of an appointment time to bring their child to school for an informal interview with the Principal and Prep teacher.
This interview is a time for the Prep teacher to chat to the child on a one to one basis in order to help them feel comfortable in their new environment. It also provides an opportunity for parents to inform the school of any issues which may impact on their child’s experience at school.
The Our Lady of Lourdes transition program takes place during Term 4. Children who have been accepted for entry into Prep participate in 2 x 90 minute sessions with the Prep teachers. These sessions provide opportunities for children to engage in activities which familiarise them with each other and with the school environment.
On the final Orientation Day, Preps are paired with a student who will be their Year 6 buddy when they start school. Preps and their Year 6 Buddies meet each week for informal activities. Our Buddy program is designed to help Preps feel secure and welcome, and to orient them to their new environment. It also assists our Year 6 students to develop skills of empathy and responsibility.
Prep Information Night
Parents of children accepted into Prep at Our Lady of Lourdes are invited to attend a Prep Information Night held in November. This is a night where parents have the opportunity to meet each other and where they are presented with practical information which will assist in the smooth transition of their child into the life of the school.
Enrolments for Other Year Levels
Parents of children wishing to enrol in levels other than Prep are welcome to call and make an appointment with the Principal for a tour of the school at any time throughout the year.
