Parents as Partners
Learn how you can help support your child’s learning.
Our Lady of the Way acknowledges parents and carers as each student’s most influential, primary and essential educators.
We encourage parents to be actively involved in school life and work with us to ensure the best educational outcomes for your child.
Parents are also actively encouraged to attend school events such as sports carnivals, exhibitions and performance evenings.

Parents & Friends Association
Our school is blessed to have an extremely generous and dynamic parent group. The parents play a crucial role in the ongoing support of teachers and children.
The Parents & Friends Association provides a wide range of teaching resources and their ministry of service is focused on the children’s welfare and learning. Every parent is urged to be fully involved in our P & F activities and to contribute their talents, time, energy and resources for the benefit of our children. The P&F meet twice a term in the school library.
Volunteer and contractor training
We welcome the contribution volunteers make to the life of our school.
As part of our commitment to keeping students safe, all volunteers in schools are required to complete the building child safe communities undertaking form and child protection training module before volunteering. These checks reduce potential risk and forms part of our strategy to build child safe communities.
OLOW Primary has a supportive and welcoming community
We look forward to you joining us!
