Lourdes Hill College is an independent Catholic College for girls in Years 7 to 12, with a current population of over 1200 students.

Located in Hawthorne, directly across the Brisbane River from New Farm Park, the College is one of Brisbane’s most recognisable landmarks.

Founded in 1916 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, Lourdes Hill is a secondary College with more than 100 years of history. The College is proud to honour its past, whilst proactively looking toward the future and building positive pathways for its students.

The College was founded to orchestrate joyful and ambitious learning for every girl, no matter what her interests or abilities are. All Lourdes Hill students are treated as great learners and are encouraged to strive for personal excellence through a range of opportunities and support.

The College’s academic track record speaks for itself, but success is not judged by academic results alone. The test of true success is whether each student has been given the opportunity to step forward to reach her full potential.

The Lourdes Hill approach to education draws on the insights and practices of Benedictine spirituality and the story of the Good Samaritan, emphasising the values that support holistic living. Students are encouraged to live out the practical Benedictine values of genuine community, compassion, effective listening and moral stability.The LHC curriculum is faith based, built on the College’s rich traditions, practical everyday spirituality and rules for living a good life. Students are encouraged to put their faith into practice by participating in homeless and disability outreach services, compassionate fundraising and connection and experience with ministries.

An extensive co-curricular program offers students the opportunity to indulge a passion, learn new skills, develop leadership abilities and provide service to the College and the community. Students can take part in any number of activities beyond the classroom across a range of areas including sport, drama, dance, music, public speaking and photography.

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.

Principal's Image

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.
