The OLSS Difference

Courage, Compassion and Creativity

Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Primary school provides a quality and holistic education, where each child is nurtured in the tradition of a Catholic community that is prayerful, accepting and loving. We aspire to ensure everyone experiences success within an inclusive, safe and respectful environment.

We are passionate about creating authentic links to the local and global community and environment.

We promote a sense of independence and self-motivation, encouraging students to take responsibility for their own learning where the person of Jesus and His teachings are central. 


At Our Lady Star of the Sea, we hold the care, safety and wellbeing of children and young people as a central and fundamental responsibility of our school. Our commitment is drawn from, and inherent to, the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ, with love, justice and the sanctity of each human person at the heart of the gospel.

 ‘…the promotion of the human person is the goal of the Catholic school.' The Catholic School on the Threshold of the Third Millennium, par. 9

Protection for children and young people is based upon the belief that each person is made in the image and likeness of God and that the inherent dignity of all should be recognised and fostered.
