Dear Parents & Carers
We don’t usually issue a newsletter in the last week of term but with so many changes of routine occurring, I thought it best to attempt to keep all families up to date with what is happening. First and foremost, I wish to thank you all for your wonderful support through what has proved to be a very hectic time. All school terms are now pretty full-on but Term 3 with the annual cold and flu season adds extra disruption to routine. It's not just the kids who are affected, as they tend to share their illnesses with parents and teachers. Hopefully, with the onset of much warmer weather, we can look forward to a good run throughout term 4.
Before & After School Trial
Parents, your co-operation with the trial of the earlier finish and earlier start for Grades P-3 has allowed for an easier transition in the afternoons with only one stop, drop and go zone. Your abidance of sticking to the direction of travel and altering your approach to the school precinct using the back streets has also made for better traffic flow. Due to the relative success of the trial, we will continue with this routine for the remainder of the year. Just some reminders that greatly assist us in running the new routine efficiently…
- Continue to remind your children (P-3) of what time they are picked up in the afternoons.
- The first bell in the morning is at 8:15 a.m. and is for P-3 only.
- For those who utilize the stop, drop and go zone at 3:00 p.m., please continue to delay your arrival until after 3:05 p.m. as this allows time for the students to walk around to the back of the Church.
- Teachers will continue to dismiss their classes as quickly as possible and remind students to go directly to the pick up area.
- Continue to drive slowly and be ever vigilant of the increased number of students and vehicles using the Goodwood Street.
- And remember, the changes won’t last forever. Everything will go back to normal routine once the building project is completed.
Entry into School Grounds
Due to the demolition and construction work which commences next week, there will be no access to the school via Ascot St. Access for the time being, will be limited to Goodwood and Holberton Street entrances.
New Play Areas
Due to the handball courts at the front of the school being out of action for a while, new before school play and new Morning tea and Lunch eating and play areas have been introduced this week in readiness for next term.
Before School from 8:00 a.m.
- Grade 6 Inside the hall or with Yr.1 buddies at the Yr.1/2 area.
- Grades 4 & 5 Across the road – multipurpose court or oval
- Grade 3 Backyard area & play fort until 8:15 bell
- Grade 2 No change – Yr.1/2 eating area and junior play fort until the 8:15 bell
- Grade 1 “
- Prep Supervised play in Prep area until the 8:15 bell
In the case of wet weather all students to go straight to class from 8:00 a.m.
Morning Tea & Lunch:
- Grades 5 & 6 Play and eat across the road – oval and multipurpose court
- Grades 3 & 4 Eat in the undercover eating area. Play across the road for all ball games, stay school side to play in the play fort area or handball only in the undercover area.
- Grade 2 Eat in the same area. Play areas – junior play forts or backyard/senior play fort
- Grade 1 No change – must remain in the junior eating and play fort area
- Prep No change
The library will also be available at morning tea play time for children in Grades 1-4 and lunch time for 5&6.
No change to our wet weather procedure.
Where to Find Us
Along with the busyness of the last week of term, the process of relocating six classes, music room and the administration block, commenced in preparation for the commencement of the building project. Many thanks to all who helped at last Saturday’s working bee. All planned jobs were completed. Your assistance on the day was greatly appreciated.
You can find us next term at the following places…
- Administration Office - Library
- Principal & A.P. Office - Parish Centre
- Grade 6 - Hall
- Grades 5P & 5M - Music/Drama Room
- Grade 5F -Library
- Music - Classrooms or The Church
Due to the relocation of classes in Term 4, we no longer have the Hall space for assemblies, so with our wonderful Parish’s blessing, we have decided to hold our assemblies in the Church. We have split the school into 2 parts – P-3 and 4-6. So, we will have assemblies for each group on alternate weeks. Our Year 6 leaders will continue to be our assembly coordinators.
Assembly program for next term…
Week 1: No assembly
Week 2: Grades 4-6
Week 3: Prep to 3
Week 4: Grades 4-6
Week 5: Prep to 3
Week 6: Grades 4-6
Week 7: Prep to 3
Week 8: No assembly
Week 9: Grade 6 Farewell Assembly – whole school – Hall
Last week, Detective Steve Denny took time out of his busy schedule to come and talk to the Year 5 and 6 students about the importance of appropriate online behaviour and the pitfalls and serious consequences of misusing social media platforms. It was a very informative presentation and I’m sure everyone in attendance learnt a great deal about appropriate use of technology and maintaining respect for others. Parents, please continue to closely monitor your children’s online communication, especially during the upcoming holidays. Loose boundaries with time on devices, social media apps and content are certain recipes for inappropriate online behaviour. I would like to thank Detective Denny for his time and sharing his knowledge and experience with the students.
School Improvement Survey
Earlier in the term parents, teachers and year 5 & 6 students had the opportunity to rate and provide feedback via the Radii School Improvement Survey. Toowoomba Catholic School have used this mode of gaining feedback for approximately eight years and each year we have received an increase in parent response, which is very helpful. The more responses we receive the better indication we gain on how we are going in all areas of school life. Once again, it was great to receive so many rewarding commendations from the vast majority of parents who completed the survey. However, we know we are not perfect and are always keen to improve in as many ways as practically possible. It is also great to receive feedback from you regarding areas we may have not been at our best or areas we need to provide further information.
Academic reporting, feedback from teachers on student progress and a slight increase in parent responses around behavioural management strategies were the major areas identified from your feedback. As the survey does not provide sufficient space for detailed commentary, it is sometimes difficult to pinpoint the actual problem. Is it a case that clearer communication is needed or more information provided via parent info nights or is a review of policy and procedure required? To gain further clarity around these issues, I invite those who raised concern over these areas or any area for that matter to make an appointment with me so I can at least attempt to provide explanation or put forward a solution to the problem. Gaining accurate feedback is crucial to our continuous effort to improve. Thank you again to all respondents.
Over recent weeks I have had the privilege to receive many positive comments from outside the school community about the excellent behaviour and attitude of our students. Staff from the Glennie Pool, Cobb & Co Museum, Crows Nest Museum, Tech time staff and teachers from other schools at various sporting events have all commented on their exceptional manners and respect the show towards others. These qualities of course reflect the expectations and values of families and school.
Year 6 Camp
Our Year 6 students and teachers along with myself and Mrs Salisbury will be away on camp the first week in Term 4. We are off on our annual pilgrimage to the beautiful Capricorn Coast and Keppel Is. This is very much a highlight of their final year in primary school and this camp has provided all who have attended over the years, with many great memories. Throughout the week, the kids will be having a go at snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, boom netting, rock climbing, caving, holding a baby crocodile and of course lots of water activities. A big thank you to the P&F for their financial support once again and to the teachers for their time and effort in organising the camp.
Thanks again to all our wonderful families for you continued support. We have experienced and achieved a great deal this term. Enjoy the spring weather over the school holidays, travel safe and I look forward to catching up with you all throughout the final term of the year.
Thanks for reading…..Chris
Administration Office - Our New Temporary Home
From Term 4, you will find Hazel and Carla in the Library.
Please ensure you visit us there to either say hello, sign your students in and out of school for appointments and/or late arrivals.
Paying School Fees
When referencing the payment of school fees we have many families who use either their surname, first name, their maiden name, trust account, business name, childs first name or last name. Due to our continued growth here at OLOL, we now find that many families have the same name and as such, can easily cause complications when receipting respective payments as they can be inadvertantly coded to the incorrect family.
To streamline the process of payments and to help ensure your payment goes directly to your account, we would appreciate if you you would please use your new family account number along with the surname of the person making the payment as your reference.
For example: OLO445 Buckley
New codes were issued to existing families when we transitioned to the new account system and you will find your family/household coded located at the top left of your school statement.
Please also note our ADF bank account details on the bottom left of your invoice. We still have a few families paying their fees to our old Heritage Bank account and would be grateful if these families would update their records accordingly to pay into this ADF account.
Clothing Pool Donations
Due to limited storage with our upcoming building project, we request no further donations to the clothing pool at this point in time. If our families would kindly hold on to these items until the construction is completed that would be greatly appreciated. With thanks
End of Term
What a great term of Teaching & Learning here at Lourdes! As a school, we’ve focused on improving our writing emphasising the Sentence High 5 and the different types of sentences to impact the reader. Teachers have worked together to ensure quality teaching and learning.
Importantly, Lourdes teachers joined with teachers from other schools to moderate writing using the same stimulus. It was a fabulous opportunity for teams to share best practice and evaluate student learning. We’ve had a great term showcasing other talents and hard work across the school and all students from all classes are to be commended for being Lourdes Learners.
Year 3 and 5 students would by now have their NAPLAN (National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy) results. These national tests assess students on Reading, Language Conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and Numeracy.
How to Interpret NAPLAN Results
There are two important elements to how these results are reported: the scale and the performance standard that are used.
Scales: NAPLAN results are measured against an assessment scale in each of the areas tested. The scales are divided into ten bands with appropriate bands reported for the appropriate year level.
Standards: For NAPLAN results, a national minimum standard is defined and located on the assessment scale for each year level. Band 2 is the minimum standard for Year 3, band 4 is the minimum standard for Year 5, band 5 is the minimum standard for Year 7 and band 6 is the minimum standard for Year 9. These standards represent increasingly challenging skills and require increasingly higher scores on the NAPLAN scale.
Please remember these results provide one snapshot of what students know and can do. Please also remember there are many skills, values and attributes we are trying to instil in all our students that are not easily tested. These are the traits of a learner and a global citizen – learners who have the competencies that help them navigate and thrive in a globalised world, such as empathy, persistence, respecting and valuing diversity, considering other viewpoints and different perspectives, and knowing how to learn.
Thank you for the support during the term when I stepped into a different role while Chris was away. I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday and look forward to seeing everyone next term.
Last Wednesday night, we celebrated the Sacrament of First Reconciliation with our 40 Candidates and their chosen adults. Father Quinlan and Father McClure heard our First Reconciliation. Thank you to our group leaders and support parents for helping the children prepare so well. We also thank the Miss Gilbert and Mrs Goldthorpe who are able to come along to support us.
Our End of Term 3 Assembly is at 12 noon tomorrow 16th September 2021
We have a Pupil Free Day on Friday 17th September.
Due to the relocation of classes in Term 4, we no longer have the Hall space for assemblies, so with our beautiful parish’s blessing, we have decided to hold our assemblies in the church. We have split the school into 2 parts – P-3 and 4-6. So, we will have assemblies for each group on alternate weeks. Our Year 6 leaders will continue to be our assembly co-ordinators.
The 4-6 assemblies will be information assemblies. The P-3 weeks will have a prayer led by one of the lower school class groups.
Assembly will start at 2.00pm – Song shared, Chris will speak, awards will be given, then school bell will go at 2:40pm for dismissal of lower classes, children with older siblings will return to their classrooms for their new usual end of day routine.

Learning Support Teachers
What a fantastic term we have had together and as you saw at our parent interviews, what great progress the children continue to make! It was lovely to catch up with everyone and show you some writing and work samples – we are very proud of the achievements of each child and it’s often during term 3 that it all clicks into place and our youngest Lourdes Learners have become readers and writers. If you missed your interview, please contact us to make a suitable time to get together.
This week we have enjoyed the Speaking Festival, Early Years Celebration (thank you to our wonderful helpers) and a gymnastics excursion.
Thank you for your support this term. We hope you have a great Spring holiday and we look forward to seeing you in Term 4 when we jump straight into our Fairy Tale unit – watch out for the big bad wolf!!
Liz and Melita
Welcome to week 10. It has been lovely meeting with our year one parents to discuss the progress being made by their children. The children have all been CALLed to Think and many are demonstrating what it means to Communicate, Act, Look, Listen to be a Lourdes Learner.
As students have completed their assessment requirements for this term, we are all enjoying a more relaxed final week and having some well-deserved fun at the Early Years Celebration. We look forward to going to Gymnastics on Thursday and learning new skills using our strength, balance, and coordination.
We have had a wonderful term together and are looking forward to learning more, consolidating our skills, and understanding next term.
Jen and Ange
The end of term is here and what a great term it has been. We have all worked so hard and have come along way since the beginning of the year. This week we all enjoyed the Speaking Festival. Congratulations to the finalists and the overall winners. You all did such an amazing job!
This Thursday is Crazy Sock Day, so please remember to come in free dress and to bring a gold coin donation. Please remember that assembly is at 12 noon. Don’t forget that Friday is a pupil free day. Thanks for your wonderful support throughout the term. Have a wonderful break and we will see you all after the holidays.
Dennielle, Allyson, Sarah, Aleisha and Megan
Thank you to everybody for another great term – it has certainly flown! Congratulations to all of the students who competed in the Speaking Festival – the students did an amazing job.
Last week, we had some students receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time and we celebrated the end of term with our dance liturgy. It was wonderful to see the growth in the students’ dance skills over the term and they had a lot of fun sharing their dance skills with you.
This Thursday is Crazy Sock free dress day – remember to wear sun safe clothes and bring a gold coin to donate to Catholic Mission. Our end-of-term assembly will be held at 12noon on Thursday, as Friday is a pupil-free day.
Have a fun, safe break and we look forward to seeing everybody back in Term 4!
Regards the Year 3 team.
Angela, Sarah, Michelle and Janice
The final newsletter for the term. Thank you all for another wonderful term; great to see so many of the parents and grandparents attend the dance liturgy. Mrs Lasserre has some outstanding photos of some amazing dancers. Thanks again to Mrs Fisher for her efforts in making us all look so good!
The Gala T-ball Day was enjoyed by all. This is a great way for our Year Fours to be introduced into competitive school sport. Mrs Gilmore, aided in the background by Mrs Salisbury, capably organised this event. Next term, information will be sent regarding the Bike Safety Program which our classes attend in late October.
This Thursday is Crazy Sock free dress day – remember to wear sun safe clothes and bring a gold coin to donate to Catholic Mission. Our end-of-term assembly will be held at 12noon on Thursday, as Friday is a pupil-free day.
Well done to all the finalists – Riley, Mikayla, Hamish and Harry in the Speaking Festival on Monday. Amazing talent on display and a big congratulations to Harry for being our winner today and Mrs Neale paid Mikayla a huge compliment for being technically beautiful! We are so proud of all our finalists and semi-finalists.
Have a great holiday all.
Suzanne, Toni and Garry
The end of term 3 is here and with it a few changes. As you are aware we are relocating with the impending building project. 5F will be based in the Library, with 5M and 5P combining in the Music room. The students are excited about the changes and the opportunity to work in close collaboration with their peers. Due to the nature of our Year 5 teaching team this change will not drastically impact on our teaching, and we will continue to run our program with required adaptions.
Congratulations to our speaking grand finalists Jono & Jay, Lexie & Ivy, Darius & Rebecca, and Bowie & Majella. There was such a high caliber of talent on display and it was tough competition.
Week 3 next term will see us journey on our Year 5 camp. Holidays would be a great opportunity to source camp items such as collared shirts (polo shirts) for sun safety while on camp (these can be used on Year 6 camp also). We are so grateful that we are still able to have this opportunity, and perhaps a blessing in disguise that we will have warmer weather. For those a little worried about staying somewhere new, a holiday sleepover would be a wonderful option before camp.
Tim, Jess and Emily
We had a fantastic week at swimming. It was great to have so lessons in preparation for Y6 camp.
Y6 Science/Technology Expo
Thank you to the everyone who supported the Monday’s Y6 Science/Technology Expo. There were many great examples of renewable energy resources that are used to produce electricity. Congratulations to the Y6 students for the effort that they put into their models and their impressive PowerPoints.
Well done to all Grand-finalists. Super performances by all involved. Congratulations to Zeke who was crowned the Y6 Champion.
Pupil Free Day
A reminder that the last day of term will be Thursday 17th September. The final assembly for the term will be at 12 noon in the Hall. Students are welcome to go home with parents at the conclusion of assembly.
Crazy Sock Day
Tomorrow is Crazy sock/Free Dress Day. A gold coin donation is asked for this privilege. Money raised will be donated to one of our school’s nominated charities.
Relocation of Classrooms
A reminder that Y6 classrooms will relocate to the hall for Term 4. We’re very excited at the prospect of working more closely together!
We attempt to post most instructions for large assessment pieces onto Teams as well as OneNote (can be accessed through Teams. Notebook is titled Year 6 2021). This allows instructions to be in one central place and allows for students to work from home when needed, due to illness or extended periods of absence. Students are reminded that they are not to like or comment on any work posted on Teams – if needed, approach teachers in person to ask questions – we are not in online learning…yet!
Parent Teacher Interviews
Thank you to all parents and guardians for your attendance at the recent Parent Teacher interviews. A reminder that our best form of contact is via email. We will do our best to respond asap.
- Thank you to parents who have completed and submitted both online camp forms. If you haven’t completed or submitted all forms, please endeavour to do so ASAP.
- Please refer to Notices on Teams for all the camp information eg ‘What to Bring’ just in case you’ve misplaced your hard copies.
Happy holidays to one and all! Camp and then a lightning-fast Term 4 ahead of us.
Larry, Kylie and Shauna
This week we will be finishing any work we have not completed this term. Year 6 will be gluing in their sheets for next term. Years 3, 4 and 5 will do this in week one next term. Have a wonderful break.

Spring has arrived, and just how beautiful does the school garden look, even if I do say so myself. Our 'Garden Crew' continue to live the dream, this fortnight entering the Cobb and Co's Hanging Basket Competition, for the Carnival of Flowers, with a very creative design. The theme this year is 'The meaning of colour'. You can view the hanging baskets anytime throughout the carnival.
The boys also had a visit from Clint Kenny, who came to judge their garden, for the 'Student's Own Garden' category of the carnival garden competition. Clint was very impressed with the boy's efforts and enthusiasm.
During weeks 2, 3 and 4 the Life Education and 'Healthy Harold' will visit our school. During this time students will participate in a fun and interactive program suited to the curriculum. The programs relate to Health and Wellbeing and will teach and encourage students how to live a safer, smarter life. The usual cost for this visit is $10. The school has subsidised 50% of the cost, resulting in a charge of $5 to your Term 4 school fee account.
