Thank you for considering Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic School. We know how important it is to find the school which is right for your child and we feel privileged that you are considering Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic Primary School.


As a Catholic school, we offer our children the opportunity to grow as young people in a supportive, loving and forgiving environment. We encourage them to develop a closer relationship with God and to live saintly lives. We recognise the uniqueness of each child and their God given gifts and talents. We believe that the education of your child has to be a partnership between home and school where there is an established bond of trust and support. This is something that we work hard to achieve and we always encourage parents, staff and children themselves to share their views and to come together to make Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic School the very best it can be.
