My name is Miss. Belmonte and I am the Year 5 teacher.  This is my fourth academic year at Our Lady of Lourdes.  Working alongside me is our Teaching Assistant, Ms. Marin.  As a team we are focused on, and dedicated to your child's academic progression and success!  

 

As our school mission statement says, we work to the best of our ability and our learning should be fun.  This year's expectations will remain high as I am very familiar with the abilities of each child therefore they will be striving for nothing less than their personal best!

 

Please check back regularly for updates on classroom events, successes, activities, website links and pictures.
