Welcome to Our Lady of Wisdom School Website
Our Lady of Wisdom School serves all of the K-6 Catholic students in Chestermere. Our school motto is “Accept, Achieve, Aspire”.
We are part of the Calgary Catholic School District. Our district mission is Living and Learning in our Catholic Faith.
Our next school spirit day is coming up on Wednesday, December 17. It is PJ Day! For this day, please wear your favourite, warm, cozy (and appropriate for school) pajamas. You may want to wear them over your clothes to keep yourself warm in our winter weather. It is going to be an awesome, fun day for all of our students and staff. Also, parents, if you are volunteering on this day, please feel free to show your school spirit and join in as well!
Students at Our Lady of Wisdom have been practicing hard on their performances for the upcoming Christmas Concerts. This year, the Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 students will be performing on Dec. 16 and the Grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 students will be performing on Dec. 18th. Both concerts will have an afternoon viewing at the dress rehearsal for anyone wishing to attend rather than the evening performances. Doors will open at 6:00pm for both of the evening performances with the concert starting at 6:30pm. The afternoon, dress rehearsal, viewing of the performances will commence at 1:00pm. We hope to see you there!
Thank you to our neighbours at the New Apostolic Church across the street for allowing us to use their parking lot for our overflow parking!
We will be continuing our tradition of collecting items for the mustard seed to be shared with those less fortunate this Christmas season. We will be collecting items up until Monday, December 15. If you are unsure of the items that we are asking for, please click HERE to go read the letter that was sent home about this project.
Thank you so much for your contributions and support!
Our next school spirit day on Wednesday, November 26 is celebrating MOvember. It is our one day mustache extravaganza! Students, staff, and visitors are encouraged to wear a mustache this day. You can buy one, make one, or draw one. We will also be selling some at the school for a loonie or twonie donation. All proceeds will be given to the Alberta Cancer Foundation to help work toward finding a cure for cancer.
So be sure to break out your best ‘stache for on November 26!
This year at Our Lady of Wisdom School we will be building community with each other through Big Family Groups (BFGs). Students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 were sorted into Big Family Groups where they can meet and build friendships with children from all grade levels. Throughout the school year, our BFGs will meet often to do an activity together that focuses on virtues that support true kindness. We will be focusing specifically on the virtues of caring, compassion, kindness, love and respect.
Our Community of Caring kick-off for the year and first BFG activity took place on Friday, October 17th from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. The grade 6 student leaders did a great job of collecting all of the students belonging to their family and arriving together at their family’s meeting place. Each group looked at the virtue of kindness and students wrote or drew in a heart a time when they showed kindness to someone else. The hearts will soon be on display for everyone to see in our school.
The response from the children was exciting as they got to know the students in their family groups and completed the first activity.
We are excited and looking forward to all the wonderful things we will accomplish this year in our Big Family Groups!

Our grade 5 and 6 students have been working hard on patrol training for the past few weeks. They are very excited to start their duties this coming Monday morning. The crosswalks will be patrolled from 8:45am – 9:00am and from 3:33pm – 3:43pm (2:00-2:10 on Fridays).
Traffic Safety Week also begins on Monday, Sept. 29. OLW will be posting safety tips throughout this week to help reinforce safe traffic habits for student and parents.
Thank-you to our Patrol Supervisors and our Patrollers for all of their hard work in preparing for their duties. Thank- you in advance for your cooperation in following the directions given by the patrollers as they work hard in keeping everyone safe.
Choose Safety over Convenience!
