Welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School, Prahran East


Principal's Message

It is a privilege to be part of this community and as Principal, each day I witness the love, commitment and hopes that each parent carries for their child. Parents are the first educators of their children and it is they who are the consistent influence in their lives. Our teachers journey with you in supporting your child’s development by providing a safe and happy learning environment. We aim to work in partnership with you by nurturing the children’s development, by taking a genuine interest in their welfare, and by guiding, supporting and assisting their holistic development. The teachers at Our Lady of Lourdes School are professional, dedicated and resolute in ensuring that each child attains their full potential.

At Our Lady of Lourdes, we prioritise not only academic excellence but also the holistic development of every child. Our dedicated staff ensures that each student receives personalised attention and encouragement to reach their full potential. We instill virtues such as compassion, respect, and integrity, preparing our students not only for academic success but also for a meaningful life beyond the classroom.

This website aims to share with current and prospective families our vision and provide a small window into the life of our school. We outline the school curriculum, key administrative procedures and how our community work as one to nurture each child’s growth and development. Our site also provides school information and access to forms, resources and reports. Information is also presented to meet our registration and public reporting requirements.
