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.

Yesterday Sacred Heart College Lower Hutt were announced as joint O'Shea Shield Champions with St. Catherine's College.

Thank you to all of the teachers involved, as well as the girls for their hard work leading up to the competition - it certainly paid off.
