The school was opened in 1951 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, and the rich traditions and charism of the sisters continue to underpin school life.
One of the many blessings of our small school is a strong partnership between home and school, which has at its core, the children. They are blessed to be part of a community where the energy and enthusiasm, sense of purpose and commitment of the parents and staff ensure that they reap the benefits of their combined efforts. Through this active involvement in the life of the school, the children come to appreciate and understand by example, the value of community.
We provide authentic learning experiences connected to the curriculum and support each child's academic, social, emotional and physical development each and every day, which all starts with high-quality teaching and learning.
Each class teacher at Our Lady of Dolours Catholic Primary School is an inspired and passionate educator. This comes from a love of children, a love of learning and a philosophy that is supported by focused professional development. In addition to high quality learning and teaching in the classroom. Our Lady of Dolours Catholic Primary School also provides specialist lessons in Japanese, Physical Education, Music, Visual Arts and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Our extensive array of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities develops the various gifts and talents of our students, many of whom have achieved sporting and academic representative honours through these programs.
