A Warm Welcome

Our Lady of the Assumption Parish Primary School

Welcome to Our Lady of the Assumption (OLA) Parish Primary School, Cheltenham. We are a Child Safe school promoting the safety, wellbeing and inclusion of all children.  We are located 20km south of the centre of Melbourne. We are proud of our Catholic faith and tradition and this underpins all areas of school life as evidenced by relationships, language and rituals.  The connection with our parish is strong and this reputation is highly valued in the wider community. 


We enjoy a strong sense of community, with this being one of our greatest strengths at OLA.  The teachers have a deep understanding of their students as individuals and of their personalities and this knowledge is used to engage the students to thrive and to be their best.


At OLA Parish Primary School we are a community dedicated to creating a collaborative culture of learning where children learn to problem solve and think critically and creatively.  Our teachers are passionate about children, learning and life and we know that good relationships are at the heart of good teaching. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards in Literacy and Numeracy whilst nurturing the wellbeing of each student.


At OLA we enjoy a positive and welcoming culture where we celebrate strengths and promote a growth mindset.  We are about modelling and forming positive habits of thought, speech and behaviour. Celebration, rhythm and structure are at the heart of school life at OLA.  We believe in creating happy memories and we do this through providing exciting and enjoyable class, year level and whole school events. 


We aim to nurture gratitude, empathy, mindfulness and strong connections within our community.  From day to day we reflect on what has worked well which allows us to build on successes and continue to improve.  We want our students to flourish and reach their potential by knowing and using their strengths and building on them.  We want our students to identify and follow their passions and learn how to make a difference in the world. We aim to bring about the best in each student, enabling all to achieve the highest goals possible. 


I am excited to have joined the OLA community in Cheltenham. You are very welcome to visit OLA - please make a time to meet with me and have a school tour of our great school.

Mr Richard Jacques
