Te Omanga Hospice Day of Care

8 August 2018  Sacred Heart College's Student Council has raised $1,500 to provide a Day of Care today for a Te Omanga Hospice patient.  This allows a patient to have a special day with friends and family doing things they enjoy.  The Student Council organised mufti-days and a bake sale to help raise the money.  They were also part of the Te Omanga Hospice promotional campaign as they raise funds for their total rebuild.  Thank you to the Student Council and school community for contributing to this wonderful gift.  You can read more about Te Omanga Hospice Days of Care here.

As from Sunday 17 June 2018, there will be changes to Metlink school and public bus services, including timetables and routes. There are also changes to how students pay for travel on Metlink school buses.

Metlink lime and yellow buses are also on their way, but not all at once, so it is important that students check the number and destination of the bus – rather than the colour.

For detailed maps and changes to SHC school bus routes please refer to the document found here.

Visit our Bus Timetables page for more information.
