OLA Catholic School Review
Thank you to the many parents and students who took the time to complete the survey this past week and participate in interviews with our Catholic School Reviewers Paul Corrigan, Jim Salsbury and Don Marceau. We are very pleased to share the report presented to staff last Thursday. Thank you to our OLA families for their part in making our school a place of faith and family and for how far we have come together in a very short time!
Yours In Catholic Education,

Independence, initiative, decision making, creativity, the ability to learn, relationships and feelings of self-worth - all have their beginnings in early childhood.We believe that each child is unique and, together with parents as our partners, we build upon children's natural curiosity and spontaneity, encouraging and supporting them as they take their first step into school.
