Our Lady of Lourdes School seeks to provide educational excellence through the integration of Faith, Life and Culture.
Our Mission as a Catholic school founded under the traditions of the Mercy Sisters is to empower all members of our community, especially the students entrusted to our care, to be active and fully informed citizens recognising the integration of our faith beliefs in an evolving and enriched multi-cultural society.
School Crest & Motto
The symbols of Mary, Jesus and the Holy Spirit encourage us to reflect on the strength of the Holy Family and recognise our need to be compassionate, caring and respectful community members. Close links are also drawn with the special relationship between Mary and Jesus recalling especially the devotion to Mary in our school and parish. Representation of Jesus and the Holy Spirit relates to the Trinity and reminds us that God is with and within us each and every day.
The Mercy Cross is deeply rooted in the traditions of our school as the Sisters of Mercy founded the school. The values of the Mercy Sisters continue to enlighten and guide our school community.
‘Honor Pretiosior Auro’ – ‘Honour is more Precious than Gold’
Our motto reminds us to look to Jesus Christ, whose life and teaching inspire us to live with honour, seeking justice for all.
