The Sacred Heart College Educational Vision is derived very much from The Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (December 2008). The school endeavours to instigate invigorating curriculum offering the building blocks for students to become successful learners, confident and creative in their exploration of their learning and who show active and informed citizenship behaviours.

Our curriculum promotes and develops the full potential and integrity of each individual student whilst authentically acknowledging special needs and educational differences. In support of this, we have an excellent learning support network that is wholly inclusive of individual learning needs at both ends of the learning spectrum.

We provide many opportunities and role models for students to demonstrate leadership in applying Christian values to contemporary issues in education, care of environment and social issues. Our curriculum is forward thinking, acknowledging a rapidly changing world and educational contexts for student learning. In being “up-to-the- minute”, this educational vision uses whole school collaborative teaching and learning practices that provide for “whole person” development throughout the academic, physical and spiritual dimensions.

Current Teaching and Learning practices use the Good News for Living Curriculum Framework for Religious Education and the Tasmanian Curriculum Documents in all other curriculum areas. The school is in the process of implementing the Australian Curriculum as documentation and resources become available.
