The Woody Point Campus, founded in 1969 by the Brigidine Sisters under the banner of Our Lady of Lourdes has a rich history and tradition. There has been extensive development of the campus over recent years to provide modern and effective learning spaces for the 21st Century student. It is blessed with a strong feeling of community among students and staff and parent involvement is particularly strong.
Data and feedback is used to effectively facilitate optimum learning for individual students. Teachers have high expectations and support students to raise their personal expectations of themselves. Classes provide a challenging and rigorous curriculum for students which address all aspects of their development.
Prayer and celebration are a focus of daily campus life. Involvement in district sports, swimming programs, dance, drama, instrumental music, robotics and chess tournaments all contribute to the holistic development of each student.
