Foundation Information Evening
Now that the foundation students have settled into school life and our mums and dads are becoming more familiar with school routines, we thought it more valuable to have the Foundation Information Evening. This opportunity will allow our Prep parents to understand and experience how learning and teaching is presented at this level. The evening will be held in the Foundation Classroom on April 3rd at 7.00pm
Parish Education Board Meeting
Members of the PEB are advised that our next meeting will be held on Wednesday 27th March at 7.30pm
School Vision and Logo
During the 2017 School Review, one of the strong recommendations was to revisit the school’s Vision statement as a school community and rewrite it “in more accessible language” which the school reviewer “deemed vital to renewing a shared sense of purpose and direction”.
The Vision for Our Lady’s school has served us well over many years but taking up the recommendation, much dialogue and consultation was undertaken through the course of 2018. We are very proud to present our new School Vision Statement…..
Our Lady's Primary School, Surrey Hills
Guided by the life of Jesus Christ
Inspired by the Spirit of Mary
Our Lady’s is a community that ignites imagination and promotes a lifelong passion for God and learning.
Our Lady's Primary School is a place of acceptance, optimism, success, growth and challenge.
Learning together in 'Faith, Hope and Love'
School Logo and Consistent Branding
The next step on our journey is to get consistency in our school branding. Our School appears to have numerous labels; Our Lady’s Wattle Park, Our Lady’s School Wattle Park/ Surrey Hills, Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Surrey Hills, Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Wattle Park. Consistency is important and is vital if we are to ensure the continued success of our school in regards to future enrolments. Marketing our school in a contemporary way and with a logo that clearly reflects our catholic identity is also essential.
Once again there is a process of consultation and next week you will receive an email inviting you to participate in a google survey for the selection of the new school logo.
This is a very exciting time for our school as we look forward with optimism and a clear strategic focus. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Parish Education Board and Mr. Pat Torpey who began this process several years ago.
We look forward to launching our New Vision and School Logo in the coming weeks.
