Find out more about the

lauries journey


Heart of Gold

At Lauries, we don’t think of ourselves as being just another school – we’re more of a place for self-discovery, where every student has the chance to find out what makes them tick. Whether it be sporting, artistic, academic or community pursuits, the Lauries journey has delivered generations of well-rounded individuals going back to 1915. Don’t take our word for it though... this website is a chance to meet a handful of our students and hear what they love about Lauries.

Finn has found his rhythm at Lauries with a keen interest in music and chess among other artistic pursuits.

meet macca, year 12 student

meet the school Principal

Mr Chris Leadbetter

‘Heart of Gold’ is a spirit that’s not easily described but most definitely felt by those who visit our campus atop Mater Hill. Whether you’re a prospective parent or student, you are welcome to experience our warm and engaging environment first hand either by appointment or at our annual Open Day. Of course, if you can’t make it in person, there’s a link to our virtual tour below, and we’re just a ‘Zoom’ call away.
