Situated in the suburb of Glengowrie, Our Lady of Grace is one of two Reception to Year 5 primary schools in the Glenelg Parish within the South West region of Adelaide.
Established in 1953, the school opened its doors at the start of the school year in February 1954. Originally it served the local community as both a church and a school, being converted from one to the other each weekend for Sunday Mass, with three classrooms housed within the church walls.
Since then it has grown in size and reputation, now comprising eight classrooms, a library resource suite, Reading Recovery and Adaptive Education tutorial spaces and a well used hall.
Our school has approximately 200 students and operates within the Dominican Tradition. A particular focus is placed on Literacy and Numeracy, but we have developed an integrated Information and Communication Technology programme, offer specialisation in Music, Drama and Physical Education and run a comprehensive sports programme.
Being a member of the South West Region of Catholic Schools, children enrolled from Reception are assured a pathway into Cabra Dominican College, Marymount or Sacred Heart Colleges for their Middle and Secondary schooling. It is important to note that parents are responsible for making an enrolment application to their preferred Secondary or Middle school.
