Our Lady of the Rosary (OLR) is a co-educational Catholic Parish School situated on the Sunshine Coast, in the picturesque beachside city of Caloundra. OLR is a small school of 355 students in Prep to Year Six (14 classes) and this enables us to be a tightly-knit community where we know every student and their family. OLR shares with students and parents a welcoming family atmosphere, great community spirit and an active parent body. Our school has a caring, progressive staff and offers a dynamic, evolving curriculum, based on academic excellence, gospel values and spiritual awareness.
OLR opened in 1980 by the Sisters of St Joseph and solidly built on the Catholic Christian tradition and the Charism of Mary MacKillop. The quote from Mary Mackillop which states, “Never see a need without doing something about it.” is a firmly established ‘catch-cry’ at our school which often drives our purpose as a Catholic learning community.
These traditions are highly valued and have continued to thrive through the joint efforts of staff, parents, students, parish and the wider community. Through these traditions, OLR school community strives to shape the uniqueness of our individual ‘spirits’ to create a communal spirituality which is characterised by our motto: ‘to pray, to care, to share’.
