Welcome to our Lourdes Hill College website. As Principal, I recognise that it is more necessary than ever for schools to be clear about their purpose and their mission. Lourdes Hill College is an innovative school, a place where every decision is based on current research about how girls learn, develop and thrive. It is also a school with a strong faith tradition and a deep attachment to our 'stories', the parable of The Good Samaritan, the teachings of St Benedict and the healing visions of Bernadette and Mary at Lourdes. These stories help us all to appreciate and commit to the call of Jesus to create a better future.
We have always believed that the ultimate gift of a Lourdes Hill education lies in the promise of its outcomes. The certainty of that promise is readily apparent in our classrooms every day. Like our staff and our parents, visitors to our campus often remark how connected and confident our girls are. To my mind, the most important thing to note is the competence underlying the confidence. A Lourdes Hill girl knows the gift of her education, even while she is in the midst of it, and is always happy to have an opportunity to talk to prospective students and parents about what makes her school an academically challenging and joyful place to learn.
I invite you to enjoy our website and to visit our campus, get to know our community and see for yourself all that can be possible at Lourdes Hill College.
