The school community of Laurel Hill Secondary School F.C.J., would like to welcome you to our website. As you browse through it we hope you will get a good sense of who we are as a school in the 21st century. You will read about our history as a school run by the Sisters, Faithful Companions of Jesus, dating back to 1844, our love of sport, language, music and our outstanding academic achievement, which is fostered by a committed and talented staff.
We continue to build on the values of the F.C.J. companionship, respect and justice and work together to create an educational community that reflects these values. We strive for each student to be happy and secure here and reach her potential in a caring and cooperative community. We are supported in our work by the Board of Management, Parent Council and Student Council. We continue to work in partnership with our parents so that through the experience of student life in this school, each individual will become mature, responsible and self-disciplined.
We hope you find this website enjoyable and informative and we invite you to contact us if you need any further information.
