Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Lourdes Hill College.

As Principal, I recognise that it is more necessary than ever for schools to be clear about their purpose and their mission.  We are an innovative school, a place where every decision we make is based on current research about how girls learn, develop and thrive.

Lourdes Hill College has a strong faith tradition and a deep attachment 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 help us to appreciate and commit to the call of Jesus to 'create a better world'.

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. Staff, parents, and visitors to our campus often remark on how connected and confident our students are.

To my mind, the most important thing to note is the competence underlying the confidence in a Lourdes Hill girl. She knows the gift of her education, even while she is in the midst of it, and is always happy to talk 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.
