Sacred Heart Girls’ College was established by the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions in 1957. While the Sisters no longer administer the College, their spirit and influence remain in both the spiritual and academic life of the school. Sacred Heart successfully integrates the aim of academic excellence with personal development and Christian leadership. It provides a happy, supportive and disciplined environment conducive to the achievement of individual success in learning and the fostering of confident, responsible young women. The community of approximately 1000 students and 100 specialist staff is one where gospel values are not only taught but also lived. The emphasis is on respect for others, for the environment and an awareness of our social responsibility. Euphrasie Barbier, the foundress of Our Lady of the Missions, had a dream ‘that all people would be loved, honoured and respected for the wonderful gifts of their difference and the amazing gifts of our oneness’. At Sacred Heart we seek to live this dream as we educate young women for our contemporary world.
