Our Community

Our Lady of the Assumption Parish Primary School

We are a welcoming and inclusive community who understand the importance and value of a positive relationship between home and school. At Our Lady of the Assumption Parish Primary School there are many opportunities for parents to partner with the school. Families are strongly encouraged to work with school in the education and faith development of their child. Parents are always very welcome at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish Primary School and you, as parents, make a valuable contribution to the school and parish community. At OLA we are proud of our strong connection between Parish and School. ​

 

Within the school, parents are able to assist in many ways including:

  • OLA School Advisory Council (OSAC)

  • Parents & Friends Association

  • Classroom Helper Program – Literacy, Mathematics PMP, Excursions

  • Attendance at Working Bees 

  • Canteen Volunteer

  • Sacramental Program

  • Social and Fundraising Events

  • Attending Parent/Child workshops

  • Assistance with other programs such as Scholastic Book Club, Commonwealth School Banking, etc.

 

Families have the opportunity to use the Seesaw App. Seesaw is a platform which promotes partnership between family and school. Students are able to share their learning with their families. Families are encouraged to respond to the student's learning. Nothing is shared without teacher approval. It is a wonderful opportunity for families to have a look at what happens in the classroom and to celebrate their child’s learning.

Families are also encouraged to support their children’s learning by attending curriculum evenings such as the Family Maths Night, Art Show and Performing Arts concerts. These evenings are an opportunity for the children to proudly showcase what they have been learning in specific curriculum areas. They are very successful, well attended evenings and they are enjoyed by the children, families and teachers as well.
