Each year, our Grade 5/6 Leaders participate in an internal leadership program, providing the opportunity for student leaders to shine. 

Our House Captains are;

MacKillop House (Red)


Pangerang House (Yellow)


Delany House (Blue)


Our House Captains function as a Leadership Group. The rest of our students nominate to be part of one of three groups, chosen by our students.

They are:

  • Edusafe
  • Earthcare
  • Social Justice & Wellbeing

Each group has responsibility for organising school events and for giving feedback on whole school plans, providing authentic student voice to our school plans.

FIRE Carriers

In addition to our Leadership Groups, all of our Grade 5/6 students are commissioned as FIRE Carriers. The aim of the FIRE (Friends Igniting Reconciliation through Education) Carrier Project is to promote respect, fairness and inclusion for Aboriginal people. The FIRE Carrier Project promotes enculturation and reconciliation in Sandhurst schools. The FIRE Carrier project Covenant is like a Reconciliation Action Plan.

What is the role of a FIRE Carrier?

To be a FIRE Carrier is to exercise an important leadership role in the school community. FIRE carriers are students and teachers that share a passion for learning about Aboriginal culture and history and are committed to sharing this knowledge and promoting reconciliation within and beyond the school community.

Our School

Our vision for reconciliation is to be a place of learning and teaching that respects Aboriginal protocols, history and culture. We will have strong and mutually beneficial relationships with Aboriginal communities. These relationships will provide for the sharing of knowledge and ideas, and the opportunity to listen and learn from Aboriginal Australians about the past, their current circumstances, and their vision for the future. We will be a place where Aboriginal culture is respected and celebrated.

Our Lady’s  Primary School provides a child-safe environment, where all students have the right to be treated with respect and dignity, and will be protected from harm.

The Sandhurst Catholic Education Office and Schools acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which their Offices and Schools are built. We commit to working in partnership with Aboriginal people for reconciliation and justice.
