Principal’s Message – Issue Twenty Three

Prayer for Feast of the Assumption

Father in heaven,
all creation rightly gives you praise
for all life and all holiness come from you.
In the plan of Your wisdom,

Mary was raised body and soul in glory
to be with Him in heaven.
May we follow her example
in reflecting your holiness
and join in her hymn of endless life and praise.



Principal’s Message – Issue Twenty Three

Feast of the Assumption

What a wonderful day we had on Thursday, celebrating Mother Mary on our Feast Day. We started our day with Mass then enjoyed the generous donations from OLA families with our cake stall. Mrs Stewart and the Year 6 students, organised tabloid sports for students in PP-Year 5, it was a fantastic way for OLA to demonstrate the RICE values in action. To finish the day, everyone was given a lolly bag and commemorative bookmark for this special occasion.

A big thank you to all of the OLA families for their generous donations and to the staff who made the day possible.

Book Week

Next week is Book Week! In case you haven’t seen the posters around the school, below is some information about the key events:

Kindergarten Enrolments 2020

We’re currently in the process of finalising our Kindergarten enrolments for 2020 and we want to ensure all our siblings have been included. If you haven’t enrolled your child for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten 2020, please liaise with Chris Balen in the office and complete an enrolment form. We certainly don’t want any of our children to miss out on placements!

Bubs Play at OLA

Over the coming weeks, Bubs Play at OLA will be rapidly developing. The Leadership Team are in the process of finalising the requirements of the program. Contact will be made with those families who expressed their interest in the survey earlier this year, as more information becomes available. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact Assistant Principal, Vel Erskine, directly via email

OLA Open Night

In Week 6, we will be opening all classrooms for families to visit and see the wonderful work that our students are doing. Families are invited to join us on Wednesday 28 August from 6pm. You may like to join us for a warm cup of milo after your walk through, it will be on sale in the Canteen for $1 a cup.

Before School Drop Off

As mentioned in my previous communications, there are no supervising staff members on duty until 8.10am each morning. With the Out of School Hours Care now open, and the area being licensed, we are unable to leave the front gates unlocked whilst there is no supervision, therefore the main gates to the school will be locked until 8.00am each day – students will not be able to be dropped off at school until this time. If you require your child to be dropped to school before this time, please enrol them in the Out of School Hours Care service that operates out of the Fr. O’Mara Centre. An enrolment package is attached for you and more information is available via the school website and office. Thank you for your support with this matter.

Vacation Care at OLA OSHC

Nicole Leach, the Nominated Supervisor at OLA OSHC, has invited all families to complete a Vacation Care Survey for the upcoming holiday break. The survey is attached for you. If your child will be attending Vacation Care in the September/October holiday break, you are encouraged to complete the survey and email it directly to Nicole via the OSHC email


Old OLA School Uniforms

Thank you to Mr Peter Sigle from the OLA School Board, who has arranged for our old school uniforms to be donated to a Christian School in Uganda, East Africa. Mr Sigle liaised with Swan View charity, The Medjugorje Centre Inc. to facilitate the donation on our behalf. It is wonderful to know that these quality uniforms will be put to good use in the future.

In 2020, once the new uniforms are in rotation, a drop off day will be organised so that OLA families can donate old school uniforms to the charity as well.

Save the Date – Father’s Day Celebrations

Our annual Father’s Day event is almost here. Mark your diaries – Friday 30 August from 7.30am. More details will follow in the coming weeks.

Have a great weekend
