Our Lady of Grace School is a Catholic co-educational, primary school catering to 540 children from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6. The school was until recently owned by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, an Order with a focus on love of God and one another, especially in ministry to the family.
The school serves the Parish community of North Beach and surrounding suburbs. The school has a well balanced curriculum with a focus on establishing a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy skills, as one of the keys to successful, lifelong learning.
The school has extension programs as well as intervention and support programs ensuring the needs of every child are met. Music and Visual Arts are a feature of school life and the use of information communication technology is integrated into classroom teaching from Kindergarten through to the upper years. An ICT strategy launched for 2020-2023 sets out the purpose, function and structure of the use of technology in our teaching and learning.
Our Lady of Grace recently completed a new building development, which saw new classrooms being built, as well as refurbishing older classrooms and extending the multi-purpose area. This project has enabled us to continue to grow while serving the educational needs of families in the area.
The new buildings provide a challenging and supportive learning environment for all students. In the Early Years in particular, the children are able to develop and play in a safe, inviting and engaging setting. Our vision for learning allows all families within the School community to use these wonderful facilities to enable our children to live life to the full.
The pastoral care of the students lies at the heart of all that the school does. It is demonstrated through school policies and programs that encourage the development of self discipline and self belief and a close working relationship between school, home and parish.
Our Lady of Grace School empowers all students through knowledge, faith and wisdom to live fulfilling lives in our ever changing world.
