OLV is a learning centered school where children are taught to respect God, others and the environment each and every day. Our children are actively involved learners, thinkers, communicators and self-managers who strive for excellence!

Our school is a Catholic Full Primary School with a roll of 255 and growing.

Our primary aim is to provide a caring Catholic learning environment which invites children to have a personal faith in Christ. We work closely with our local parish, Our Lady of Victories and the Catholic Education Office.

Our Lady of Victories is a Canterbury Mercy School.


OLV school newsletters are emailed home every fortnight on a Thursday. They are also available for download in the news centre. Hard copies of the newsletter are also available at reception.


We are a Catholic School that is Christ centered and lives Mercy Values. Our mission is to nurture faith, to grow community, and to achieve excellence.


When our school was opened in 1956, the Bishop invited the Sisters of Mercy to staff it. Our children are taught one Mercy value per term which come from Venerable Mother Catherine McAuley. Our OLV Mercy values are: Respect, Service, Social Justice, Excellence and Sustainability.

We welcome parent helpers. Please see your child’s teacher if you are available to help
