Lourdes Hill College introduces Years 5 and 6

Lourdes Hill College has announced it will welcome students into Year 5 from 2025, extending the College to include a Junior School.

Principal, Ms Robyn Anderson, said the College community is excited to open its doors to girls in Years 5 and 6 and to welcome them into the community which is underpinned by the charism of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan.

“We are opening our College to Primary School students to provide our community with greater choice, opportunity and certainty regarding their child’s education,” Ms Anderson said.

“We pride ourselves on our inclusive all-girls contemporary Catholic learning community that enables each student to pursue their full potential. A further benefit of the introduction of Year 5 and Year 6 is that our students will have the opportunity to transition from Primary to Secondary School in a unique environment which offers the girls a bridge between both worlds.”

Plans are underway at the College to develop a new Junior School Centre at the College with the existing two-storey J-Block (Santa Teresa Building).

Our Junior School students will enjoy the safety and familiarity of their own classrooms and teachers while enjoying learning with specialist staff and in the wonderful facilities. These include a theatre, sports centres, impressive science laboratories, creative arts facilities, home economics rooms, a laptop help desk and a state-of-the-art library and information services centre.

Students will also engage in the College’s House and Pastoral Care Programs which focus on building a girl’s sense of belonging, confidence, and wellbeing. Students will be able to choose from a range of Co-Curricular activities and groups where they will meet girls from other year levels. This builds their sense of community and belonging as well as helping them explore new experiences and passions.

Lourdes Hill College enjoys the support of a team of specialist professionals to enhance learning and growth opportunities. This team includes learning enrichment teachers, information technology staff and professional culture, service and sports tutors and coaches.

“We believe it is important to foster this growth in a supportive environment with dedicated and experienced staff. We offer our students the learning and support programs they require to reach their full potential. Our approach helps students to become flexible thinkers and life-long learners”, Ms Andersen said. 

Mr Roger Lazzaretti, Chair of the Lourdes Hill College Board said “This is an exciting new milestone for everyone in our College community. As a leader in girls’ education, Lourdes Hill College is an independent Catholic College of Good Samaritan Education and has been inspiring young women to create a better world through educating and empowering them to embrace a love of life and a love of learning”.
