2020-TERM 4 – WEEK 10




Year 6 Graduation

Well done to our graduating class of 2020!

Graduation from primary school evokes different feelings and emotions : excitement in anticipation of beginning a new phase of life; sadness in leaving a place that has nurtured them for many years and some trepidation in what lies ahead. We hope they will forever treasure their time at Our Lady of Good Counsel School, Our Spirit - filled community, where there is sharing and praying, Learning and playing. There is no place like OLGC!


Over the holidays save those cans and bottles!!!

OLGC is involved in the Cash for Containers program through a partnership with the City of Stirling.
What can be recycled: aluminium cans, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard drink containers between 150ml and 3 litres.
What cannot be recycled: containers less than 150ml, and greater than 3 litres, plastic milk bottles, wine bottles, pure spirit bottles, cordial bottles and juice bottles over 1 litre or under 150ml.
We would encourage our students and their families to be involved in this fantastic project that will encourage recycling and also bring funds into the school.

Next year we will be giving families the option to begin a payment plan ahead of the billing of the 2021 school fees.  Set aside a monthly amount on payment plan to the school, so that when school fees are billed in Feb 2021, your account is already in credit.  Consider keeping this payment plan going for the duration of your child’s stay at OLGC and never have to worry about fees again!

This year is a good year to start this system, because there is a 0% fee increase. 

Please find a link below to 2021 fees.
