Our Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to Sacré Cœur, a Catholic school educating girls from Prep to Year 12 in the Sacred Heart tradition. As Educators of the Sacred Heart, we are privileged to work with young girls and women, as we guide their heads and their hearts in all they do.

A Sacred Heart Education is steeped in history that originates in France. Our Founder, St Madeleine Sophie Barat, founded the Society of Religious of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (RSCJ) in 1800. ‘Sophie’ was committed to educating young women with a focus on both academic endeavour and the students’ formation of character. She also believed in the transforming power of women and their role in society.

Over two hundred years later, this same spirit of endeavour and focus on the holistic education of each child lies at the heart of all our decision making and learning. Our students often refer to the School as their second home as they feel a sense of belonging and connection to their lived experience.

The joy of laughter, the gift of wonder, the sharing of talents, the forging of friendships and the diversity of opportunity is all evidenced in the girls’ schooling. The encouragement to raise one’s voice, challenge opinions, and to think globally as women who seek to make a difference in their world are celebrated within a Sacré Cœur education. Our girls seek to contribute to their local communities and to the world. We are dedicated to equipping them with the skills to take on this challenge, with a holistic education that empowers them to be confident, resilient and to live their life with a future focus.

We are privileged to belong to an international Sacred Heart family of over 150 schools across 41 countries. Our extended international family help to grow our sense of community as we learn together through exchanges, and engage in programs that support social justice initiatives locally and across the globe. Many Sacred Heart schools share the same five goals that inform our practice and helps shape each girl by raising her sense of empowerment within a safe and nurturing community.

Our school motto Cor Unum et anima una in corde Jesu means one heart and one mind in the heart of Jesus Christ. We believe our students aspire to share in a Cor Unum spirit which is demonstrated by their ability to grow with an open and generous heart which is then shared with others.

I invite you to join us for a discussion and tour so you too can discover the difference a Sacré Cœur education can make to your daughter and family.
