Better Together

This year our theme is "Better Together - one body in Christ" - Romans 12:5. We are called to love and serve God by loving and serving each other in all parts of life. This is a gift from God.

We look forward to journeying with our OLA community through this theme, and together helping to bring it to life.

The 2022-2023 school fees will be added to student accounts in the coming weeks. Please check your PowerSchool account for any outstanding school fees and ensure that all fee payments are up to date as they are due.
