History

The Benedictine Congregation of Our Lady of Mount Olivet was founded in 1319 by Blessed Bernard Ptolomei.  He built the first monastery in the mountains near Sienna and called it Monte Oliveto Maggiore and the Archabbey is still on the same site.  The congregation is a branch of the old tree of the Benedictine Order started by Saint Benedict around 500AD.  The monks wear white habit in honour of the purity of Our Lady, to whom they have a special devotion.

School Council

The school aims to allow pupils to contribute to the vision of our school.

Twice yearly from years 3 – 6 pupils put themselves forward to serve on the School Council and are voted for by their peers.

They meet weekly and help organise charity fundraising as well as being the pupil voice to the School Management.
 
“School Council members are elected by their peers and take their responsibilities seriously" ISI June 2011

Term Dates

This advance notification of the term dates is available to enable families to arrange family holidays within School holiday dates. Disruption is caused to the pupil and, more importantly, to others in the class when the dates are not adhered to.
