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 70 years of inspiring excellence at the Heart of girls’ education.
Spirituality of the Heart is the centre of who we are at OLSH. We are inspired by the vision of Jules Chevalier (msc), who knew God’s Heart loved without limits. In this same spirit we are called to live out our motto Regnet Christus – May Christ Reign…to be on earth the Heart of Christ.
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.
OLSH College Bentleigh has a proud tradition of being at the forefront of educational practice. Our curriculum responds to the social and personal world of young people and in particular women. At OLSH we recognise that, in order for students to learn effectively, resilience, independent thought and the capacity to build effective relationship are a vital part of the curriculum.
Whether in the Arts or Humanities, Maths or Sciences, OLSH classrooms are vibrant and energising places. Indeed, the range of subjects on offer is signifi cant, allowing young women to pursue their passions and develop key skills across a broad range of disciplines.
Besides enabling students to achieve competency and confidence in literacy, numeracy and information technology, the learning experience is designed to develop manual, physical and social skills, initiative and creativity. Through research, problem solving, decision-making and critical thinking, students are encouraged to become independent learners, assuming responsibility for their own lives and contributing actively to society.
The OLSH graduate is a woman of Heart, Faith, Compassion, Integrity, Wisdom, Resilience and Hope.
At OLSH we are committed to developing young women of Heart who will serve others, make a positive contribution to the community both locally and globally, and be able to respond to life’s challenges confi dently and compassionately.
It is thus the responsibility of all members of the College community to nurture the wellbeing of each of our students, guiding each one of them to learn, to achieve to their capacity and take ownership of their education.
OLSH College provides initiatives which assist in developing students’ connectedness, resilience, responsibility, accountability, assertiveness and leadership. Leadership is seen as being the norm, at OLSH we provide opportunities for girls to display leadership at all year levels.
