OLD children talk about ANZAC Day
Hear what they say.

I Can be me at O.L.D.

Festival of Arts

Thank you to the P&F for organising such a great night on 8 September for our Festival of the Arts. Once again, it was a tremendous display of community. The display of artistic ability of our students was just spectacular. It ranged from magnificent art works through song, recitation and dance. The evening culminated in a very productive auction and was characterised by fellowship and fun.

Students Take the Lead

On 5 September our students took the lead in their Student Led Conferences, informing their parents about how they're doing, what their goals are going forward, and what kind of learners they are. They were able to talk confidently and constructively to their parents about their learning.

OLD's Fantastic Fathers

We were very busy preparing for Father's Day. We love our dads so much that on 1 September we brought them along to school! Their first treat was a Coffee Morning on the deck where they were minded while we did secret shopping at the Father's Day stall. Next the Prep students were very excited to present their Prayer Assembly for the whole school, in honour of their dads. Finally all dads were invited to join their children’s class for some activities.

Book Week Bonanza

Book Week is a time when we bring our favourite characters to life and 2017 was no exception! We held our Book Character Parade on 28 August and many famous faces made an appearance. We followed up with our I Love Books photo competition, where we set up a scene that showcased our love of books and a photo was taken and submitted for whole school voting. Heaps of fun!

Social Justice Evening

On 28 July our Year 6 students participated in a social justice evening at St Andrew’s school with our sister schools St Andrew’s and St William’s. The students participated in three workshops learning about Orange Sky Laundry, St Vincent De Paul and a presentation about schools in Timor Leste. While the other students ventured home, our Year 6 students journeyed back to school for a sleep out to further develop an understanding of how homeless people spend their nights.

Catholic Education Week in Action

Our students were involved in some wonderful projects during Catholic Education Week. They made books for our sister school in Timore Leste, combining English with Tetum. Postcards were sent to our Defence Forces to express our appreciation of what they do for us. Each student made a paper plane, noting how they varied in design and in responding to external factors - just like us in our learning! Finally we carried out random acts of kindness with a letterbox drop of good wishes to our neighbours in the streets around us.

Thank You Staff Breakfast

Our fabulous staff makes OLD what it is and we acknowledged all their hard work, thoughtfulness and dedication to teaching and caring for our students with a shared breakfast during Catholic Education Week.

Catholic Education Week: Sharing the Journey

On Monday 24 July the OLD Community was found Sharing the Journey around the coffee van that provided a warm start to our week on a cold morning. Parents and staff enjoyed a chance to chat with others as we launched our Catholic Education Week celebrations.

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.
