Our College is an independent Catholic secondary school for girls and is most often referred to as OLSH. The college is one of many worldwide schools founded and administered by the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. Our tradition spans more than 75 years of inspiring excellence at the Heart of girls’ education.
At OLSH we are proud to be able to offer our students the luxury of being in a small community where students are known by name and yet be in a position to offer our girls the same opportunities as many of the larger schools.
Students at OLSH are encouraged to pursue excellence in everything they do from Year 7 through to Year 12. We challenge students to always strive for their personal best in whatever they undertake as part of their education.
Our Year 9 program, known as Issoudon, incorporates a 4 week interstate residential program which challenges our students and takes them away from some of their creature comforts. The Issoudon year enables girls to grow physically, mentally and spiritually. It develops a sense of gratitude and a desire to be the best they can.
An education at OLSH is centred on our four pillars of education. Our students are challenged to be Heart people who are Faith–Filled, Reverence Relationships, Pursue Excellence and Touch the Hearts of Others.
The OLSH digital classroom prepares students to live in a world that is highly-connected through technology. We emphasise the importance of being a discerning user and one that is able to recognise the validity of information provided on line.
We want our students to be women who are not afraid to put themselves forward as leaders in technology. To be beneficiaries of government education funding in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, as well as active participants in the push for Australia to become a nation of innovative thinkers.
We recognise that technology also helps schools and families be more connected, our aim is to provide a variety of platforms to suit individual family needs.
At OLSH we embrace technology as an important and necessary tool in the classroom, and continue to skill our staff so we are able support our students in the proper use of technology.
We are also passionate about ensuring that technology does not dominate our student’s lives. We emphasise the importance of relationships and interactions, and spend a lot of time ensuring that our students get the balance right.
