T

HE OUR Lady of the

Angels Preparatory

School (OLAPS) is the

school of choice as we

encourage children to learn,

grow, play, and pray to ensure

that there is a solid

foundation from which right

values will be instilled. We

endeavour to challenge our

children to reach their true

potential while acknowledging

their right of place and

purpose through active

involvement and balance.

We place the joy of learning

and socialising at the heart of

children’s early education

experiences with the aim of

providing a springboard for the

rest of their learning journey.

The OLAPS mission is to

provide educational services

that allow all children who are

nurtured within to experience

learning success in order to

become conscientious learners

and contributing members of

our community.

The school was established in

1961 by the Franciscan Fathers

of the Our Lady of Angels

Church, 75A Molynes Road,

Kingston 10. Later that year, it

was moved to the present

location at 78 Molynes Road. We

are richly blessed with strong

parental involvement and an

active Home & School

Association (HSA). Indeed, we are

blessed to be one of the few

preparatory schools in the

Molynes area to have a

recreational area that can

accommodate a full-size junior

football field and a 200m

running track. The upgraded

facility includes a multipurpose

playing surface, an automated

irrigation system, an upgraded

perimeter wall, and a 200-

person capacity stadium seating

has been the culmination of a

productive partnership among

school, parents, and benefactors.

GIVEN OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP

The institution also

benefited richly from ACE

Limited, which donated the

gift of resurfacing the school’s

netball court. The managing

director of Asphalt Concrete

Enterprise Limited, Patrick

Gordon, who is an OLAPS

benefactor, has definitely

secured a place in the hearts

of the community members

of the Our Lady of the Angels

Preparatory. It is important

that our students are given

the opportunity to develop

their athletics skills even when

they are still learning the ins

and outs of sports.

The OLAPS Debating Team

are the 2016 runner-up

winners in the Burger King

Primary and Prep Schools

Debating Competition, as well

as 2013 champions for the JISA

Inter-Prep Netball competition.

Our Speech/Drama and Dance

Troopers have earned gold,

silver, and bronze accolades

consistently in the JCDC Arts

Festivals. As we have, over the

years, groomed and moulded

top scholars, we have been

awarded first-place

accomplishment and top

student for the St Andrew

region in the Lay Magistrate

Essay Competition.

For many years, our track and

field team has been in the top

10 ranking in the JISA Inter-

Preparatory Track and Field

Competition alongside the

cricket team, which has also

earned semi-final and top-10

placing. Members of the cricket

team have also been part of the

All-Island Cricket group and

have continued at the

secondary level to the Under-16

national cricket team. We also

proudly highlight that a few

OLAPS track & field members

have also consistently

represented, nationally.
