At OLPS we offer a rich and diverse range of educational experiences. Our highest priority is addressing the needs of each child in an atmosphere of collaboration.

Our vision is that OLPS will be recognised as a welcoming and contemporary Catholic school where our innovative learning environment prepares students to be future ready for secondary school and life beyond.

Comments from some OLPS parents ...
"Choosing the school for not only where your children will belong but your whole family unit can seem overwhelming at the time. When we were making this decision for our daughter to start Kindy in 2015 we were looking at both OLPS and the local public schools – so why did we choose OLPS? The sense of belonging and community we felt was overwhelming. Since the beginning of that journey not only our daughter, but now our two sons have enjoyed a learning environment where they feel safe, their achievements rewarded and they are stretched to challenge themselves. The children are learning in an environment where they have access to great technology, they have teachers who are dedicated and passionate which flows through to great academic successes. The school also has a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. Everything the children do at school links back to their Positive Behaviour Learning (PBL). As a family we have found like-minded families and have formed ever-lasting friendships. (2020)"
"We are extremely happy with the teaching at OLPS (our child's NAPLAN results are evidence of the quality of teaching at OLPS), and she continues to flourish with the warmth and support consistently offered by teachers and peers in all grades. Thank you for all the care and support you have shown both our children over the years".
"It is a very inclusive school where all the students are known by the teachers and the Principal. There is a very strong sense of community within the school and this promoted throughout. The teachers and principal are very dedicated to providing the children with a great education that covers a broad range of curriculum area and challenges children to reach their potential."
"Sense of belonging is amazing by families, teachers and Parish Community. My son had a great start to school ever since he started Kindergarten."
"I like the sense of community
I like that the teachers are warm, friendly and accessible
I like the deep learning projects they do."
"I would also like to acknowledge the new look school newsletter - it's great to see this evolve and include pictures and videos, particularly given that parents have restricted access to the site."
