Scared Heart Girls College Oakleigh

Principal’s Message

It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to the wonderful learning and faith community of Sacred Heart Girls’ College, Oakleigh.

principal It is a community that enables young women to engage fully in life as they grow and develop in preparation for life’s journey - a journey that is continuing to unfold through their secondary education.

In association with our families, we enable each student to develop all those attributes and skills for life long learning: initiative and excellence, confidence and self esteem, discipline and dedication, self awareness and a generosity of spirit, integrity and honesty, creativity and imagination and an understanding of their spirituality.

Our supportive and nurturing environment values each student as an individual. She is known by her teachers and is recognised as a valued member of the community, one who is affirmed and celebrated in many ways.

Learning is valued at Sacred Heart. Our dynamic learning and teaching environment encourages positive engagement as all seek to gain further understanding of the world in which we live. It is learning that promotes the growth and development of the whole person. The programs and activities on offer at the College cater for the many individual needs of all our students. Our balanced, broad and challenging learning environment seeks to create a love of learning, independence and solid preparation for tertiary education and the ability of our graduates to take their place in the world of the 21st century.

Our faith and mission leads us beyond our community, inspiring all to see what is possible in our ever-changing world. Our pastoral care is exemplary in practice, enabling our young women to express their uniqueness and feel connected to our community, knowing that their well-being is important to us. Our exciting learning culture enables our young women to be active in seeking knowledge and understanding. At Sacred Heart, we aim to facilitate the development of young women who are committed individuals full of insight and understanding, knowing who they are and being prepared for leadership and service beyond the College.

We are proud of this College and all that it has achieved since its foundation in 1957. The College has developed a rich tradition firmly embedded within the Catholic faith, a tradition that is expressed in all aspects of College life. Gospel values such as: love, compassion, service, peace and justice are at the core of all we do. The experiences of these values as they are lived every day at Sacred Heart, enable our young women to take their place in our community and in the world with great hope and enthusiasm.
