This Catholic convent school opened in 1916. It was later part of Archibishop Duhig’s vision of precincts of churches and schools spread across small parishes that saw the expansion of this school. The Hall was built, in 1918, atop a local hill so as to give Lourdes Hill College a prominent position in Hawthorne and surrounds. It became a Girls boarding school, the College gained a reputation for excellence in education for young Queensland women. It ceased taking boarders in 2011.
