To develop in each child their unique qualities equipping them to enjoy a successful Christ-centred life.
Our mission is to develop and strengthen students’ academic skills social abilities spiritual awareness and personal character in a nurturing and inspiring Christian environment.
In our Junior School experienced caring and committed teachers work to help each child reach their full potential. For the little ones starting school we ensure a smooth transition from Preschool to “big” school through our wonderful “Buddy” system. Our Year 6 students develop mentoring and leadership skills by nurturing trusting relationships with their Kindy “buddies”. Our Year 5 intake and programme prepares the upper Junior School students for Senior School.
In our Senior School we encourage students in and beyond academic pursuits so they mature as well-balanced adults. Our integrated pastoral care programme and personal development seminars equip senior students to graduate from school as competent individuals willing to assume active roles in their local communities and wider society. This is well summed up by our 2009 Year 12 School Captain jonathon Shannon who said
“OFGS has equipped us with a belief in our own self worth abelief in the worth of others and a belief in Christ. These values are built up through an environment where every student has the opportunity to shine the opportunity to be generous and the opportunity to love God. For this I am extremely grateful. ”
In our seventh HSC year we continue to achieve exceptional results. We congratulate our 2010 Year 12 graduates. Some of the 2010 HSC highlights include: * 17% of students achieved an ATAR above 90* 29% of students made the Distinguished Achiever’s list (Band 6 in one or more subjects)* 71% of students obtained a Band 5 or higher in one or more subjects
