Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Welcome to Our Lady of the Angels’ Catholic Primary School, Wavell Heights.  

Beginning school or entering a new school is a large step in the life of your children as they learn more about themselves, others, the world and God.

Catholic education is a partnership between school, home and parish. By enrolling your child at OLA you are making a commitment to be involved in the life of the parish and the school. In this way you can fully support the whole development of your child. As you involve yourself in the OLA community, you will have the opportunity to meet new friends and discover new horizons. We hope that you and your family experience a real sense of belonging here!

Inspired by the compassion and service shown by Nano Nagle, and St Francis, Our Lady of the Angels’ Catholic Primary School seeks to foster the growth of each student, in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ, through the traditions of the Catholic Church. We grow together in Hospitality, Justice and Simplicity, as we develop and celebrate an inclusive environment where right relationships and students' intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social and physical well-being is paramount in all we do.

Our school motto " Shine with Life,  Learn with Love, Grow with God” permeates the life of the school. We strive to live out the Gospel values of Jesus each day in a supportive and caring environment that acknowledges and celebrates the gifts and talents of all those in the community - children, teachers and parents so that they can make a difference to the world in which we live.

 St Francis challenges us to "Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words."

Through the learning programs that are offered, we provide a range of educational experiences for all students that will challenge, motivate and encourage them to reach their full potential. The staff at Our Lady of the Angels’ are committed and dedicated, working as a team to provide quality teaching and learning programs that are innovative and in keeping with contemporary educational practice.

At Our Lady of the Angels’ we are immensely proud of our vibrant Catholic school community. I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our school.
