Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Lourdes Hill College.

As Principal, I am dedicated to the holistic education of our students. I believe education can create empowered, informed, confident young people of faith and wisdom who are inspired to walk purposefully to follow the call of Jesus to ‘create a better world.’

Lourdes Hill College has a strong faith tradition and deep connection to our three stories: The Parable of The Good Samaritan, the teachings in the Rule of St Benedict and the miracle at Lourdes.

These stories inspire us to be people of kindness and compassion, peace, and community, hope and healing. We are called to find inner strength in our gentleness and bring this to our everyday lives.

A Lourdes Hill College education epitomises the fundamental elements of a leading secondary school. Through striving for academic excellence as part of a welcoming community our students are afforded a wealth of opportunities to thrive in a stimulated learning environment.

Students are challenged to engage in our Co-curricular program of Culture, Sport and Service with their wellbeing at the core of our holistic education. Our students are encouraged to explore their unique gifts and talents and respect individual differences.

In 2024, our College Community embraces the opportunity to Stand Up! based on the Story of the Good Samaritan. The theme is about being proactive in the pursuit of peace, how we respond, it’s about courage, action and receiving a stranger as Christ. The challenge this year with our 2024 Theme is not just about helping someone else; it is about generosity and hospitality, and standing up regarding the choices we make when we see people who need help.

I invite you to enjoy our website and or visit our campus for one of our scheduled tours or on our Open@Twilight in May.

Come see what we see at LHC, be a part of our community, and discover all that is possible at Lourdes Hill College.

With kindness, peace and hope. 

Mrs Kay Gleeson
