Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College (OLSH) is an independent Catholic secondary school for girls. Administered by the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, the College is built on a tradition of more than 75 years of inspired learning excellence in the Heart of girls’ education. Students, parents, staff, alumnae, OLSH sisters and friends are all part of the OLSH family, and we welcome them as they journey with us. At OLSH we are committed to our vision of being ‘Heart’ people who are faith-fi lled, reverence relationships, pursue excellence and touch the hearts of others. Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College, Bentleigh, is one of many OLSH Colleges throughout the world that was established in response to the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart carrying on a ‘mission without limits’. It was in 1938 that the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart opened the College in Bentleigh in order to educate young women in South East Melbourne.
OLSH has a proud tradition of being at the forefront of educational practice. Our curriculum has been designed to address the needs of 21st century students. We provide inspiring and challenging learning opportunities across a range of curriculum areas. Our contemporary, technology-rich curriculum places the student at the centre while promoting excellence, resilience and the achievement of each individual’s personal best. OLSH offers a comprehensive and challenging Religious Education program which is directly supported by the Retreat Program. Each student is encouraged to discover, refl ect and nurture their own spiritual journey within the OLSH tradition. The College also offers students outstanding opportunities in the areas of arts, sport, debating and public speaking. They also have the opportunity to participate in choirs, musical, dance and dramatic productions. Camps and a range of sporting and fi tness activities are offered to encourage a holistic, healthy, yet fun approach to life. In addition, seeking to broaden the exposure of students to the needs of our local and global communities, OLSH offers immersion experiences in mission areas within and beyond Australia, as a well as a European study tour.
Our future is one that is fi lled with exciting possibilities and a commitment to continued development. Concentration on engagement of students in their learning is a foundation priority for the College. The introduction of a completely alternate program for Year 9, known as Issoudun, which includes the offering of a residential experience at Hartzer Campus, Bowral NSW, is at the heart of the movement forward. The College will engage in a building program that will provide state of the art facilities for students, including the offering of a senior school precinct and a collaborative approach to performing arts, physical education and faith formation.
