Archives

Old Photo of Sacred Heart CollegeThe College Archives contain photos, memorabilia and uniforms dating back to the 1920s.

Looking through our archives is like taking a journey back through time.  There are photos dating from the 1920s; old diaries from the 1950s and 1960s written by students as an account of activities during the year; handwritten music books; architect plans of the college as it has developed; detailed records of Duke of Edinburgh tramps from the days of Sister Marie Gabrielle ... the list goes on.  The photos above capture just some of our history.

"I was in one of the classes Forms 1 & 2 that moved to Brendon Woods when it was first bought by the Sisters.  It was like "camping out".  We had our classes in the old homestead.  Discipline was more relaxed and we were on the whole better behaved.

Every day two pupils were chosen to go up to the Convent and collect the Sisters' midday meal and carry it back in a wicker basket.  This was because the main meal for the Sisters and boarders was served at midday.  We really enjoyed being picked to do this, for as well as getting us out of school for awhile we were tantalised by the delicious odours emitting from the basket.  The two girls were always given a plate of the meal.  I remember the day it was my turn.  The meal was Irish Stew and I can still remember it today 60+ years on."
