At Our Lady of Sion College, we celebrate the gift of life through our teaching and learning programs. Embracing the strong tradition of the Sisters of Our Lady of Sion, students are encouraged to realise their full potential through experiences that will enrich, challenge and reward them.
At the heart of Our Lady of Sion College is community.
We recognise the diverse spiritual, intellectual, social-emotional, and physical needs of our students and the development of these needs within an environment where each student is named and known, valued and nurtured, encouraged and supported through the personal relationships we foster.
Our student leadership program supports young women who want to stand up for other young women. Their voices tell us about the issues to which they want to make a difference. Our interfaith and social justice programs encourage our students to look beyond the school gates and reflect on how they can be a voice for those without one.
One benefit of sending your daughter to an all-girls school is the lack of stigma about girls participating in Maths and Science subjects; indeed, our Denise O’Hara Science Academy is a unique extension program that challenges our girls to consider aviation, robotics, conservation and a wide range of other STEM options as real possibilities for their futures. In 2019, six of our students from Years 7 to 12 took up the opportunity to travel to NASA, Houston, to attend Space School, a learning experience which has captured their imaginations and offered them insight into real-world applications of Science and Engineering beyond their classrooms.
We aim to foster in our students a love for learning, an inquiring and discerning mind, the pursuit of personal excellence, a compassionate concern for others and a strong sense of hope that they can become positive agents of change in their world. Ultimately, our learning environment and the varied opportunities we provide aim to support each student’s journey towards becoming the young person God created her to be.
