Embracing a compassionate and dynamic community through strong Gospel values, quality education and promoting respect for all


How to be Involved

There are many ways to be involved with Our Lady's.

There is a very active Parents and Friends committee who support the school board with planning and running social and fundraising events. They also support the school directly with time and talent directed toward running events and activities that directly support the students.

Opportunities exist for classroom support from art room activities to working with students in literacy and numeracy.

Open invitations are extended to family and friends for all school functions, assemblies, masses, liturgies and gatherings.

You might also just like to drop in and see what is happening in classrooms or just be in the school.
