OLD children talk about ANZAC Day
Hear what they say.

I Can be me at O.L.D.

Harmony Day

In its usual spirit, the OLD community engaged its energy wholeheartedly in acknowledging the diverse cultures of the families we walk beside every day during our Harmony Day celebration. We wore as much orange as we could.It was a sight to behold!. The National Anthems of the countries of origin of so many of our families were a highlight of the morning along with the tasty bits and pieces students shared.

Leadership Shirts Arrive

There was great excitement among our Year 6 leaders when they were presented with their Leadership shirts at assembly on 6 March. The shirts are a symbol of their seniority in the school and their developing leadership skills. We are very proud of you Year 6. Wear your shirts well.

Swimming Carnival

On 27 March we held our Swimming Carnival, successfully avoiding the rain which did not fall. So many races, so much fun and so much effort from everyone! Congratulations to Nugent House who took out the trophy and well done everyone!

Active Travel Breakfast Launch

Active Trave 2017 was launched on 14 February with a very fitting theme of Valentine’s Day – Wear a Splash of Red. We shared breakfast before we taking the walking school bus back to school. Each Tuesday, families are welcome to come to the park for a run around, and then walk back to school together.

Getting to Know our Preps

Year 5 is proudly introducing their Prep buddies to the school. This is a wonderful tradition and the Year 5 students have done a great job uncovering the aspirations of our youngest students.

Stairway to Heaven

A sight to behold! A stairway to heaven arches over the Old Good Sams' convent after a shower of rain on a hot summer's day.

Welcome Morning Tea

Our mums, dads and other friends enjoyed a welcome morning tea on the deck. There was just as much happy chatter there as there was in the playground as friendships were renewed and holiday stories shared.

First Day of 2017 at OLD

On 24 January there was much excitement as the Kids in the Crest came flooding back full of holiday stories and anticipation about their new year. All were ready to show that We Can Do IT. They were met by happy teachers, old and new friends and, for Years 3 to 6, brand new furniture - very futuristic! Check it out.
