Our Lady Star of the Sea has been wonderful for our son. Not only is he much happier and more settled, his self confidence has improved enormously. He’s made wonderful friends of all ages and the staff go above and beyond to support all their students. OLSS feels like a family where everyone is welcomed and celebrated for their own abilities.

Our Lady Star of the Sea is a school that is big enough to excel but small enough to care. The school promotes being safe, respectful, responsible, resilient and ready to its pupil’s, but this ethos is also extended to the families of the children. The school with its leadership from its principal, instil positive beliefs and highlight the enormous gains from religion and prayer. Being a parent to a child with additional needs the school has gone above and beyond what is required. They have provided my child and our family with enormous support and guidance. The acceptance and inclusion provided by all the staff, pupils and parents of the school has made a positive environment for my child to thrive in. Our Lady Star of the Sea may be a small school but has certainly made a big impact. Nicole Payne

 

We have been extremely happy with the education and care our children are receiving at OLSS.  We commenced in January 2019 and our family was warmly welcomed into the school community.  I have always found the staff to be approachable and quick to respond to any queries we have had.  We have a partnered approach to our children’s education with their class teachers, who show a real knowledge of who our children are, not just academically but as individuals.  Cathy is also acutely aware of how the children are learning and developing, with students’ well-being being paramount.  The specialist’s classes offered and the opportunities to attend excursions, sporting events and camp has helped my children become engaged learners, increase their independence and have a greater understanding of the world we live in.  Their religious education teaches them about Jesus, the events that happened in his life, his teachings and how they can be applied in their lives today.  Our children love their school and the opportunities it provides.
