Special Character

Sacred Heart College is proud of its Catholic tradition. There is a lively Religious Education Programme at all levels in the college. Special liturgies are a part of each school term and school assemblies affirm achievement and spiritual values. The college's feast day is a wonderful celebration of love and service.

Our Monogram

Sacred Heart College is committed to the retention of the values and vision of its foundresses. It is hoped that in the Catholic atmosphere of the College virtue and knowledge, as represented by the V.K. of the College monogram, will become an integral part of each student's life.

The college is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Sacred Heart symbolises the great love of Christ for his father and for all peoples. The letters S and H on the monogram reminds us of the Christian faith we strive to live out in our community and the shield is symbolic of our efforts to hold onto Christian principles. The palm branches represent the victory over self and the courage we need to uphold our principles. The crown is a reminder of the rewards to be gained by doing good for the sake of goodness itself. It also symbolises Christ's kingship.

Goals of Catholic Schools

The Search for Excellence

The search for Excellence is seen as an integral part of the spiritual quest. Christians are called to seek perfection in all aspects of their lives. In Catholic education, pupils are therefore given the opportunity to develop their talents to the full.


The Uniqueness of the Individual

Within Catholic schools and colleges, each individual is seen as made in God's image and loved by Him. All students are therefore valued and respected as individuals, so that they may be helped to fulfill their unique role in creation.


The Education of the Whole Person

Catholic education is based on the belief that the human and the divine are inseparable. In Catholic schools and colleges, management, organisation, academic and pastoral work, prayer and worship, all aim to prepare young people for their life as Christians in the community.

The Education of All

Their belief in the value of each individual leads Catholic schools and colleges to have the duty to care for the poor and to educate those who are socially, academically, physically or emotionally disadvantaged.


Moral Principles

Catholic education aims to offer young people the experience of life in a community founded on gospel values. In Religious Education in particular, the Church aims to transmit to them the Catholic faith. Both through Religious Education and in the general life of the school, young people are prepared to serve as witnesses to moral and spiritual values in the wider world.


Sacred Heart College is committed to Gospel values, to fairness and to equity.
