Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College offers a Catholic Education in the spirit of the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, a French missionary order which founded the school in 1951. At OLSH College we engender a passion for lifelong learning; encourage excellence; value each individual’s gifts and talents; are generous with our time and care of each student so that she develops her full potential; are a welcoming, vibrant and inclusive community in which we celebrate diversity; prepare students for future challenges by encouraging creativity, courage, perseverance and resilience; encourage young women to work for social justice so that they recognise that they can make a difference and understand and accept the challenge of the gospels to fight injustice; allow students to explore their own faith journey; nurture faith in the Catholic tradition; have passionate, generous and highly competent staff; and are hopeful. This mission has seen us support new arrivals to Adelaide for over 60 years and lives out the spirit of the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.
At OLSH, girls learn and lead in an atmosphere of approval. Everything we do is designed to ensure girls reach their full potential as we open up the extraordinary range of career pathways available to them. OLSH is an innovative learning community. The curriculum at OLSH is relevant, purposeful, engaging and prepares all students for lifelong learning. It recognises the importance of each girl’s learning style and caters to her particular needs. In 2011, 92% of girls received a first round tertiary offer. Our teaching methodology is tailored to suit individuals and provides flexible learning opportunities, recognising the uniqueness of each student. We believe that students should have the opportunity to experience many subjects in their formative years of secondary education, allowing them pathways to a broad range of senior subjects. OLSH has a rich and diverse cultural strength and this is mirrored in the patchwork of co-curricular choice. Co-curricular clubs on offer include Art/Design, Book, Gifted and Talented, Homework, Environment, Maths Enrichment, Running, Choir, Debating and Science. OLSH also offers a variety of performing arts, community and personal growth activities including bi-annual musicals, peer tutoring and public speaking.
Using technology instead of bricks we will continue to build colourful, flexible learning spaces which foster engaged, exciting learning. We recognise that relationships are key to all we do and reflect our commitment to pastoral care. At OLSH, we will continue to encourage students to take risks, challenge themselves and enjoy the wonder and awe of learning new things. A key advance is the use of a range of ICTs and digital technology to open the doors to a 24/7 classroom through the use of a range of online collaboration tools.
