The children are to go to the top courtyard area or the Penola Centre ONLY as they arrive at school. The remainder of the school grounds is out of bounds at all times before school.


Teacher supervision is available in the top courtyard area and the Penola Centre from 8.10 a.m. Early arrival is discouraged (unless children go to Before School Care). This is for the safety of your children.

Teachers supervise the bus stop until 3.20 p.m. and the car pick-up areas until 3.20 p.m. All children should have left the school premises by 3.30 p.m. No responsibility can be taken for any child on the premises outside of these times, apart from those participating in Our Lady of Lourdes After School Care Program.

The school provides Before and After School Care for those who have need of this facility. For further information, please contact 3344 3064. The facility is also operated during vacation periods. ​
