I wish you a warm welcome to Our Lady of the Snows School.

We are a small, friendly, family-orientated full primary school in Methven township, sitting at the foot of the spectacular Mt Hutt skifield.

The following pages have been prepared to give you and your family the information we feel you may need to know about Our Lady of the Snows, as you prepare to enrol your children into their new school.

Known affectionately locally as 'OLS', we are committed to providing a modern, enlightened, quality Catholic education for students ranging from New Entrant to Year 8, as we have done for generations, laying down the essential foundations of a great education to last them a lifetime.
