OLSH has approximately 170 students and our community is made up of town and rural families from Victoria and New South Wales. Our school was originally established in 1928 by the Sisters of Mercy and maintains a strong commitment to the core values of love, trust, dignity, respect, freedom, forgiveness, self-awareness and self-discipline.
We provide a quality education with many opportunities for students to participate in a wide range of activities and our professional staff caters for the individual needs of every student. The excellent and modern facilities, including a new multi-purpose wing and extensive grounds, allow the students to explore a vast range of learning and developmental experiences. The wellbeing of our students takes precedence and we aim to create an environment where every child can be happy, safe and reach their full potential. We offer a number of student support programs and extra-curricular activities. Our families are encouraged to be actively involved in all school programs.
