Message from the College Captain

We, the SRC of 2020, look towards empowering one another in the community and uniting to become: ‘individually strong, collectively powerful’.

As compassionate and respectful women of OLSH, our voices will empower all to have a vision and make a difference. #2020OLSHVISION

Through the liturgy, social justice, performing arts and sports portfolios, we aim to implement various student led initiatives and proposals that will provide every OLSH girl the opportunity to have their voice heard. This will allow our students to be confident in thought, kind in attitude and eager to act, in the school and wider community. Our strong Christian identity and involvement in the Catholic Church will guide and influence these initiatives implemented, with the aim of increasing the importance of helping those less fortunate in society.

In order to be collectively powerful, we as OLSH women need to be individually strong. To achieve strength as individuals, we must empower and encourage one another. It is this individual strength that enables the college to have a powerful school spirit and be influential in the wider community. Therefore, all students are encouraged to be involved in all aspects of the College they are passionate about and understand the importance of reaching out to those who need it most.

In 2020, with the support and guidance from our teachers, and the planning completed by the SRC, we call on all students in the OLSH community to collaborate and unite with one another in order to become active participants of the College.

‘I raise up my voice – not so I can shout, but so those without a voice can be heard… we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.’ Malala

Together let’s make 2020 the year where the women of OLSH unite to be individually strong, and collectively powerful.
