Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the website of OLSH College Bentleigh, located in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

Our College is a Catholic secondary school for girls and is most often referred to as OLSH. The College is one of many worldwide schools founded and administered by the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. Our tradition spans over 80 years of inspiring excellence at the Heart of girls’ education.

Our 2018 VCE results were outstanding and they included the highest Median Study Score (33) in the history of the College which helped to place us in the top ten Catholic schools in Victoria. We are so proud of the girls from the Class of 2018 and the dedicated teachers who worked with them to achive their best.

Principal 80th Celebration

At OLSH College we are privileged to journey with our girls and we are passionate about the provision of an education that encourages them to ‘believe and achieve’. Spirituality of the Heart is the centre of who we are at OLSH. We are inspired by the vision of Jules Chevalier (msc), who knew God’s Heart loved without limits. In this same spirit we are called to live out our motto Regnet Christus - May Christ be on earth the Heart of Christ.

This website provides an opportunity for those who visit to share in our OLSH College story, to catch a glimpse of who we are and to see what is happening at OLSH College. The story, the events, the achievements and prayerful reflection are integral parts of the learning journey for each of us and, at OLSH, we do that together. Students, parents, staff, alumnae, OLSH sisters and friends – we are the OLSH family and we welcome those who wish to journey with us.

At OLSH College we are committed to our vision of being Heart people who are faith-filled, reverence relationships, pursue excellence and touch the hearts of others. We rejoice and celebrate our giftedness and we are privileged to experience and know that an education at OLSH is an education of the Heart… the Heart of Learning and the Heart of Life!
