From the Principal

OLSH College crestI trust that from visiting our website you will gain an insight into the unique character of our College.

In a girls’ school, girls learn and lead in an atmosphere of approval.  Everything we do is designed to ensure girls reach their full potential as we open up for girls the extraordinary range of career pathways available to them. 

Our student population is an ideal size for providing a balance between offering a broad curriculum and providing a vibrant, supportive, learning community.  Here students can strive for excellence. //more
