"Parents have the first responsibility for the education of their children. They bare witness to this responsibility, first by creating a home where tenderness, forgiveness, respect, fidelity and service are the rule. The home is well suited for education in these virtues." (CCC 2223)
At OLOL we are happy to support parents in this overwhelming responsibility. The beauty of belonging to a community such as OLOL is that the relationship between parents and teachers is mutually supportive.
This website gives a window into what our school and it's community provide families by way of sharing the responsibility of educating children to reach their potential. There are also multiple opportunities for parents and families to support the school. At the centre of these two powerful and loving forces is the child.
Some ways parents can support the school are listed below:
- Parents and Friends associations
- Parent Classroom Reps
- Classroom Helpers
- Sporting events - marshalling and training
- School Education Board
- Work at Fundraising Activities.
