Our Lady of Lourdes is a year 1-6 Catholic integrated primary school with a roll of around 150 students by the end of each year. It is located on the western side of Palmerston North.
As a learning community, our aim is for all our students to develop the values, knowledge and competencies that will enable them to live full and satisfying lives.
To do this we believe it is essential to:
affirm our special catholic character and live by the gospel values
provide a curriculum that supports and empowers all students to learn and achieve personal excellence, regardless of their individual circumstances
encourage all students to reflect on their own learning processes and to learn ‘how to learn’
centre learning in meaningful experiences with a wide range of challenging content
value learning as a partnership between home, school and the wider community
celebrate and embrace our cultural diversity
