Canberra Private SchoolsÂ introduces Lourdes Hill College in Hawthorne, for all your education and learning needs.
Lourdes Hill College, an Independent Catholic Secondary School for girls, was founded in 1916 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan. In 1915 the Archbishop of Brisbane invited the Order of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan to establish schools in Brisbane. Thirteen Sisters travelled from Sydney opening convents at Bulimba and Coorparoo.
The rich heritage of the College is drawn from three sources: the compassion of the Good Samaritan found in the Gospels, the patronage of Mary under the title Our Lady of Lourdes and the strong Benedictine tradition of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan which places strong emphasis on education and the importance of balance in life between work, prayer and recreation.
Since 1916 Lourdes Hill College has grown into an educational establishment well respected for the pursuit of achievement and excellence in the education of young women. Lourdes Hill College is situated on the Bulimba reach of the Brisbane River and set in beautiful surroundings.
Welcome to Lourdes Hill College one of the popular educators in your Hawthorne area. Our aim is help you in your learning journey.
We endeavour to celebrate each other's uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
