|Our family joined the community at OHR this year with our son starting Prep. We are extremely happy with the way the school is run, the dedicated teachers and the caring transition process including the buddy program.|
Results in literacy and maths are very good and student/teacher ratios are excellent. Public speaking opportunities for all students are fantastic with students including Preps often speaking at assemblies. Mandarin is taught and is a very useful modern language.
Students are very well mannered and the uniform is worn with pride. Our young daughter who tags along for school pickup is looking forward to the day she joins her brother at school and the new friends she has already met after school in the playground.
Take a school tour and you will be impressed.

|Being the parent of 4 kids at 3 different schools I am very aware of the differences between OHR and others. We have just finished CV19 isolation and we have just seen OHR adopt video conferences(Google class room), not daily, but just 1-2 times a week.. huh...|
Similarly our younger and older children have daily checkins and homework to keep them busy throughout the day..
Also we have found that you need to get involved about the most trivial things, in fact matters that should be within the school or holding our kids accountable.
Looks like Xmas this year we'll remove another child.. So sad, but inline with other comments here.

|It has been a long journey but finally got my 3 catholic kids out of here. I do acknowledge there is much rhetoric around wellbeing at the school but there is not much follow-through with the school management. It is interesting to note how some parents say it prepares their kids for high school, yet I am also aware of many kids leaving because of concern for their children’s ability to spell and math’s capability. Furthermore, we know boys don't mature as fast as girls and may need a little more help. Look around the classroom and try and find boys in year 3 onwards, they are a rarity. Furthermore, I cannot believe that my children don't come home with spelling words to learn, really. I mentioned this fact to a educational expert and their look of horror and lack of comment was clearly noted… So if you want a great community, without the academia for your kids then this is the school for you. |
