We've Gone Cashless

Moving forward into 2023, the School, Care Centres, and Uniform Shop will become cashless from 1st January 2023. School Fees can be paid over the counter via Credit Card or Bank Card, by Direct Debit, or via your online banking through BPAY. Uniform Shop orders will remain online and through the shop, with the shop accepting payment via EFTPOS only. Canteen orders will remain online, and the Canteen will still accept cash orders in the morning and cash sales during the day.

Online Uniform Orders 2023

The Uniform Shop are now taking online orders for 2023. Orders placed before the 25th November, will be packed and ready to send home to families prior to the end of term. We encourage all families to utilise the online ordering system to reduce wait times, as opening days will be limited during the January period.

Out of School Hours Care News

Week 4 of OSHC has been very productive, as we have coach Jerome from the Special Olympics Training Programme coming in to organise sports activities. Children have been signing up and are eager to start participating in the sports sessions. Sessions will run for 30-minute with coach Jerome and will be continuing for another 4 weeks, so if there are any parents who are interested in sending their children along, please feel free to give us a call. Sessions run from 4:00 pm to 4:30 pm on Tuesdays.

The ELC and OSHC enrolments for 2023 and 2024 are currently open. Please visit to enrol online.

Early Learning Centre Care News

Week 4 has arrived, and it has brought with it some amazing weather, which we have all appreciated in the ELC. Children have had the opportunity to explore the outdoors and participate in outdoor learning sessions which have proven to be beneficial for our mental and physical well-being.

Next week our program will be focusing on Community Workers. If there are any ELC parents that fall within this line of work, who would like to present a talk with the class, please speak with one of the educators. We would love for parents to share stories, pictures, or items with the class. We would also like to remind parents that Friday 18th November is ‘Wear it Bright’ for St Vincent De Paul Day. All children are invited to wear bright colours for the day.

Applications are currently open for our 3YO room and 4YO room for 2023 and 2024. Please visit the website to apply online (under the ELC tab).


Hello! Fr. Pier here.

I pray you are well.

Every year we have parents of our Catholic schools students who choose to revive or explore their Catholic journey.

In the past we offered the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), which helps to understand the contents of our faith.

Something was missing: a space where people could deepen their personal relationship with Jesus and our community.

This space is essential: with a living relationship with Jesus, the Catholic journey is a joy. Without it, it is a chore.

People will gauge with their leaders when they are ready to move towards RCIA, which is more like headspace.

This year we started from this space of experience, which we called Gateway.

We have just started.

If you wish to deepen your journey or start it altogether, you are welcome – come with your personal story.

  • What: Gateway. We share a meal, some insight, our experiences, and prayer.
  • When: on Tuesdays at 6.30 pm
  • Where: the presbytery, on the left of the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes.
  • Contact: For catering purposes, it would be great if you let us know.

I hope to see you there!
