Dear Parents,


Welcome to Our Lady Queen of Peace Primary School, a K-6, four-streamed co-educational Catholic school that was established in 1957 to serve the early forming community of the Greystanes district. The school began as St Simon Stock Primary School in a building that doubled as the church and was run by the Sisters of Mercy until 1965, when the Dominican Sisters of Malta took charge. We have now grown to over 820 enrolments.

At OLQP we recognise that Jesus is central to our lives and we are committed to promoting Gospel values in everyday life. As part of our Catholic identity we focus on prayer, liturgical and faith experiences, issues of social justice and the partnership between home, school and parish. We encourage the living out of our school motto, Veritas, or truth, in all aspects of life.

Through the generous and faith-filled support of parents, and the talents of the dedicated staff of teachers, the school provides a teaching environment that is committed to excellence and permeated by Christian Values. We promote and respect the dignity of every individual. We value and nurture the gifts and talents that each child, parent and staff member brings to our school. We consider it a privilege to share with you in the education and development of your child.

We hope that all who come to Our Lady Queen of Peace School see Christ reflected in the people, structures and programs of our school.
