Our Lady of Good Counsel Primary School is a welcoming and active community. We aim to build strong relationships between school, families, our parish, our local community and the wider community. All members of this school and parish are called to contribute to this vibrant school community.
OLGC Parish School Education Board acts as an advisory body to the parish priest and principal on matters concerning the development of the school and the education and wellbeing of the students. The Board meets once every month.
OLGC Parents' Association is an energetic and visible part of the school community and offers many opportunities for parents to gather and become involved in the life of the school.
Communication between parents and the school has many benefits whether it is formal or informal. When parents and teachers share information, children feel more supported. Good communication can help create positive feelings between parents and the school.
At OLGC we warmly welcome parents into the classrooms to assist with a variety of activities. From assisting in literacy, to helping with cooking, maths tasks, art and craft activities, we also encourage parents to come in and share their expertise as guest speakers. Parents may volunteer at excursions and at school camps.
OLGC has in place a Student Referral Program.
Your positive feedback is our most powerful marketing tool and we need your help to increase our enrolments. We know our students and parents are the best advocates for OLGC and we want to encourage and reward you for showcasing our great school within the community.
It is a way for OLGC Deepdene to say thank you for your trust and confidence.
Every student who attends OLGC will have a life long connection with our school. Since 1924 hundreds of students have been educated and formed friendships that have lasted many years. We invite all past students to share their contact details with us, to ensure you stay connected as we build our Alumni network. Contact us here.
