2022 – TERM 2- WEEK 8- 2022



God, it’s hard to let go of our kids, and send them out
into a world that is so unstable and so volatile.

But You are bigger than all of our worries.

You are bigger than our worst fears.

Send Your Holy Spirit to quicken in our hearts as we seek

You in Your Word and pray to You for comfort.

Remind us that our children are Your children,
and that You love them infinitely more than we do.

May we always cling to the cross for our hope, and light the
path for our children to, as well.

Message from the Principal


The LifeLink organisation was established by the Archdiocese of Perth in 1994 to provide for the ongoing financial and promotional support of agencies established or assisted by the Church. LifeLink Day was officially launched last Wednesday. The Year 6 Spiritual ministry and I took part in the online launch. LifeLink’s agencies deliver professional services & caring support to thousands of people in need throughout Western Australia each year. The work of LifeLink is indeed a positive demonstration of Faith in Action.


Interschool Sports

Next Thursday students in Year Five and Six will be competing in an interschool event where they will participate in football, soccer and netball against other Catholic schools from our region. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to engage competitively with others while demonstrating respectful behaviours. I wish them all luck and hope the sun is shining.


Student Reports

Student reports will be released in week Ten via SEQTA, please ensure your login details are working. The report is an overview of your child’s achievement against the curriculum that was taught in Semester One. For the Semester One report there will be a change, all areas will be graded and there will be a general comment. I encourage you to read the report with your child and celebrate successes and select goals for Semester Two. It is important that students are aware of their achievements and that as parents we encourage them to strive for their best.


OLGC Feast Day

On Thursday students will attend a special mass at 9am which parents are invited to attend. Kindy to Year 6 students will then be split into their faction groups and will spend the day engaged in a variety of activities. The P&F have kindly offered to supply a sausage sizzle for lunch.

God Bless

Dear parents, guardians and carers

Re: Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) 

Every year, all schools in Australia participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD). The NCCD process requires schools to identify information already available in the school about supports provided to students with disability. These relate to legislative requirements under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005, in line with the NCCD guidelines (2019).

Information provided about students to the Australian Government for the NCCD includes:

  • year of schooling
  • category of disability: physical, cognitive, sensory or social/emotional
  • level of adjustment provided: support provided within quality differentiated teaching practice, supplementary, substantial or extensive.

This information assists schools to:

  • formally recognise the supports and adjustments provided to students with disability in schools
  • consider how they can strengthen the support of students with disability in schools
  • develop shared practices so that they can review their learning programs in order to improve educational outcomes for students with disability.

The NCCD provides state and federal governments with the information they need to plan more broadly for the support of students with disability.

The NCCD will have no direct impact on your child and your child will not be involved in any testing process. The school will provide data to the Australian Government in such a way that no individual student will be able to be identified – the privacy and confidentiality of all students is ensured. All information is protected by privacy laws that regulate the collection, storage and disclosure of personal information. To find out more about these matters, please refer to the Australian Government’s Privacy Policy (https://www.dese.gov.au/about-us/resources/department-education-skills-and-employment-complete-privacy-policy-0).

Further information about the NCCD can be found on the NCCD Portal (https://www.nccd.edu.au).

If you have any questions about the NCCD, please contact the school.

Kind regards


Nic Gaglia

The ENVIRONMENTAL MINISTRY would like to announce a new initiative. We are collecting plastic bread tags.

The tags are recycled locally, raising funds to buy wheelchairs for disadvantaged people, mainly in South Africa.


Please start collecting at home and even ask friends and family to collect as well.

Special collection boxes have been placed in every classroom.


Incentive for collecting fifty bread tags earns your class 15 extra minutes free play.

Keep counting your tags and let us know as soon as you get there.


The winning class at the end of term wins an icy pole and the extra 15 minutes as well!
