Vision & Mission

St Oliver’s School endeavours to educate and develop the whole child within a Catholic environment, centred on Christ’s values of truth, love and service.

It envisions a future for each student that encourages respect, compassion, tolerance, justice, and true celebration of the sacredness of life.

It seeks an ongoing pursuit of excellence and holds high expectations for all learning. As a thriving educational entity, St Oliver’s strives to build depth, endurance and resourcefulness whilst conserving and acknowledging the deep richness and diversity of its community.

It is our mission, based on our beliefs and underpinned by our Catholic Values, to promote and provide a quality educational environment where all can learn and reach their full potential.

In our community the elements of inclusivity, deep knowledge, deep understanding, intellectual quality, and significance are embedded in the curriculum, to provide equal opportunities for all learners in a framework of quality education.

Paramount to all learning and actions at St Oliver’s school is a dedication to seeding the wonder of lifelong learning.


The school opened its doors in 1930 under the care of the Sisters of Mercy. The school was originally known as Blessed Oliver Plunkett. At first, the single storey building served as both church and school. Later in the 1930’s the second storey was built.

When Oliver Plunkett was canonised in 1975 the name of the school and parish changed to St Oliver Plunkett.

In 1977, the new wing was opened and the older building was upgraded. In 2000, the school was refurbished and the Library relocated to the middle floor.

The distinctive charism of the Sisters of Mercy, that is mercy, compassion and justice, was always a driving force in the school and remained so when the sisters ended their association with the school at the end of 1975.

The first lay Principal began at the school in 1976 and strong Catholic education continued with lay staff.

Today the school continues to provide quality education. Our aim is to develop the whole person with an emphasis on the Catholic faith and our strong religious traditions, while providing quality teaching and learning in all Key Learning areas.
