Vision and Mission

Our Vision

With open hearts we model the all-embracing love of Jesus Christ. With caring hearts we are faithful to the tradition of the Sisters of St Joseph. With aspiring hearts we instil a love of learning and an enthusiasm to embrace the challenges the future may hold.

Our Mission

Guided by the Spirit:

  • We acknowledge the sacredness of creation and our responsibility to care for our earthly home;
  • We celebrate as a prayerful Eucharistic community;
  • We encourage each other to give witness to the values of the Gospel;
  • We reach out to all; but especially the broken, the lonely, the rejected, the stranger;
  • We challenge each other to grow in academic, sporting, cultural and service endeavours;
  • We strive to develop responsible self-management;
  • We build respectful and supportive relationships between parents, students and staff;
  • We respect the differing beliefs of others.

As a united community we strive to: ‘Act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God.’ (Micah 6:8)

Our Motto

‘Sursum Corda – Lift up your Hearts’

Our Values

Sacred Heart College both supports and nurtures students, helping them develop a personal ethical framework that includes self-confidence and self-knowledge as well as knowledge of the world they live in and their place in it.

Our school and our work today are guided by the leadership of the Sisters of St. Joseph, the Good News revealed in the Gospels and the teachings of the Catholic Church. We recognise the individuality and dignity of each student and actively work to promote their needs through:

  • The provision of satisfying and fulfilling learning experiences within a safe, encouraging, and compassionate environment;
  • The establishment of an effective care network for every student;
  • Challenging students to be their best;
  • Providing firm, fair and consistent expectations;
  • The development of quality relationships within the total school community.

Inspired by our founders, the Sisters of St Joseph, we welcome students and staff from all faiths and backgrounds, valuing all members of our community.
