Principal’s Message

Welcome to Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Primary School Forestville.

We are an innovative and inclusive Catholic school, welcoming children of all abilities, backgrounds, cultures, and faiths. Our skilled and committed staff nurture the social, emotional, physical and spiritual development of all students in our care. We are committed to our vision to provide authentic, professional Catholic education, delivered with care and compassion. Every child is supported and provided with opportunities to love learning and to use their talents to be the very best they can be.

Our school offers a vibrant learning environment supported by quality teaching and innovative technology, an integrated pastoral care program, offering excellent sporting and creative opportunities.

Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Primary School is situated in beautiful tree studded surroundings with play equipment, an oval providing ample playing space and outdoor education facilities. We are a co-educational school meeting the needs of children from Kindergarten to Year Six. Our motto “Let your Light Shine” underpins everything we do at OLGC.

Learning is promoted as a lifelong process, and staff, parents, and the community work to encourage children to develop initiative, become self-motivated learners who can work co-operatively, play enthusiastically and behave with consideration and mutual respect for everyone.

Parents are partners at OLGC. We see you as the primary educators of your child and we encourage you to be actively involved in the school and parish.  I look forward to welcoming you to OLGC and invite you to take a school tour at a mutually convenient time by contacting us on 02 9972 7311 or
