In 1986, Our Lady's College moved from the South side of the railway and was amalgamated with St Joseph’s Primary school into a year 1 to 10 school on the St Joseph’s school campus on the Northern side of the railway line.
In 1990, a preschool was added to the school and in 1994 the high school section closed. The feast of the Presentation of Our Lady on 21st November is celebrated as the school's feast day in recognition of the contribution of the Presentation sisters to Catholic education in the Longreach schools from 1900 until 1997.
The Foundation day of the school is celebrated on 19th February.
Our Lady’s school currently has an enrolment of around 130 students.
The school offers a wide range of subjects with particular emphasis on the prescribed Key Learning Areas: Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Study of Society and the Environment (SOSE), History, Geography, Health and Physical Education, Science and The Arts.
"We the community of Our Lady's School strive to bring light to the world by walking His way, telling His truth and living His life."
