Why choose Our Lady of Good Counsel?
Our school provides a welcoming faith environment and a variety of experiences for each and every student. We develop a collaborative working partnership with parents, children, our parish and other agencies of the church. It is through these strong partnerships that students develop as capable learners and well-adjusted people of faith and values.
It’s not surprising when your child feels valued as an individual and enjoys attending school each day, greater engagement with their learning occurs. We are committed to providing the best care possible for your child. Catholic schools such as OLGC are renowned for fostering resilience, compassion, and forgiveness among our students, parents and staff.
We teach your child about the Catholic religion and its traditions; and teach people to share our religious identity and culture. Students study the Catholic faith, are involved in regular prayer and celebrate God’s presence sacramentally through mass. They are taught to ‘Make Jesus Real’ by building positive relationships with their peers and improving the lives of others through acts of social justice.
Do I or does my child need to be Catholic? You do not need to be Catholic for your child to attend OLGC. If like us, you are committed to holistic education and support the ideal of an inclusive community, you are warmly welcomed.
Our specialist teachers offer a range of subjects. All children from Prep to Year 6 are taught in the areas of Music, Physical Education, Drama (Prep – Year 3) and German (Year 4-6).
We are blessed with a well-resourced school. Fully air-conditioned, with spacious grounds and a newly built Administration and Learning Support Centre, we also offer a networked computer lab, laptops and iPads.
