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 College. 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 VCE results are consistently outstanding and in 2018 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. Academic results from 2019 were also excellent. We are so proud of our Year 12 girls and the dedicated teachers who work with them to achieve their best.

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 know that 'OLSH girls can do anything!" 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!
