Scared Heart Girls College Oakleigh

Holistic Approach to Student Wellbeing

Sacred Heart Girls’ College endeavours to promote a holistic approach to student wellbeing by nurturing each girl’s physical, emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual life within the framework of the Catholic school.

These dimensions are developed in a healthy school community that continues to enhance and promote the value of each individual.

We acknowledge the importance of positive relationships that foster connectedness both within and beyond the Sacred Heart community. With this in mind, the delivery of pastoral care is both reactive and proactive in order to provide support, guidance and education for students with the onus of responsibility upon each member of the school community, for the wellbeing of others.

Policies, structures and procedures exist within the school at all levels to assist in the delivery of a comprehensive wellbeing program to students.
