Your daughter’s happiness and wellbeing is of paramount importance to us here at Our Lady of Lourdes. From the moment she steps in the door, our family friendly atmosphere will quickly put her at ease and make for a smooth transition from primary to secondary education.
We firmly believe a happy child will flourish and we work hard to ensure the individuals’ needs are met at all times, and that the girls feel they are valued and respected members of our community.
We have a positive and practical approach to care through our Pastoral Care Team which works hard with all students, parents and staff to promote a healthy and happy environment where kindness, respect and consideration for others is expected. Support comes from the Principal, Deputy Principal, Guidance Counsellor, Year Heads, Class Tutors and subject teachers. Each person strives to form positive relationships to nurture the girls’ social confidence, ensuring they are happy learners and are making good progress in all areas of their development. Our Meitheal Leaders, Student Council and Prefects work closely with staff in providing support and encouragement.
Beyond our high expectation of academic achievement, our girls are encouraged to take part in a wide range of extra and co-curricular activities, as we believe holistic education is the key to enabling your daughter to be the best she can be – prepared for the world with healthy emotional and social skills, critical thinking ability and a strong sense of self -worth and identity.
As enthusiastic and committed staff, we continuously re-invest our efforts with and for the students – not just academically but in everything we do. The girls are given opportunities where they can excel, and we encourage them to learn new skills and form lasting friendships.
