Principal’s Welcome

On behalf of the school community, welcome to Stuartholme School.

I have led Stuartholme School as the Principal since the beginning of 2016 and discovered a vibrant and compassionate community that encompasses the values of faith, learning, community, social justice and personal growth that empowers young women to lead.

I have learnt that Stuartholme is a school that lives by its mantra – for each girl to be the best she can be. Its meaning is derived from the way each student is treated by her teachers and peers, as an individual person with strengths, passions, fears and hindrances. The way we teach, adapting to each student’s learning style, is aimed at providing the best educational outcome for each girl. We pride ourselves on supporting, extending and challenging our students to optimise pathways for their future learning.

For the students – it is ‘cool’ at Stuartholme to try your best, to give it a go, to strive. This is not the norm for adolescent girls in Australia. Australian research shows many teenage girls opt out, hang back or make excuses. Stuartholme students are on the front foot and leaning in. They are developing and sharing their gifts. They make mistakes and learn from them, in the safest environment we can provide.

Our stunning yet compact grounds and small student population ensure each girl is not ‘lost in the crowd’. With less than 700 students, the School prides itself on being small enough for each student to be personally known, yet large enough to offer an extensive, ever-changing and dynamic range of opportunities.

As Brisbane’s only Catholic girls’ boarding school, Stuartholme’s boarding community remains at the heart of the School. 150 girls live at Stuartholme and every interaction I experience is friendly and open-hearted. It is delightful to share this space with such joyful young souls.

The spiritual life of the School and our Student Wellbeing Program work together to ensure the holistic development of our girls. In the words of one of our foundresses Mother Janet Erskine Stuart, a “Sacred Heart education is not meant to turn the children out small and finished but seriously begun on a wide basis. They must leave us with self-knowledge, energy, and purpose.”

I encourage you to learn more about Stuartholme School. Explore our website, visit us for an Action Tour and join us for our annual Open Day for the opportunity to meet our expert staff and talk with our students and Alumnae. Our community is a true testament of what a Stuartholme School education can provide.
