Sacred Heart is proudly Catholic. In the tradition of the founding Order, the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions, our College is a Catholic faith community where the curriculum is taught within a framework of Catholic values and teachings. We provide all girls with a wide range of opportunities and encouragement to obtain the highest personal standards of achievement, a love of learning and a self disciplined approach to all they undertake.
Single sex schooling has many advantages for girls and Sacred Heart provides a supportive and friendly environment designed for each student and her needs by a well qualified and enthusiastic staff.
As well as pursuing academic goals, students are able to take part in a wide range of activities outside the classroom. Everyone enjoys the sports, music, drama, service groups, clubs and dances that are part of our school.
Sacred Heart College particularly values the international atmosphere created by its students from many countries.
The College particularly values the international atmosphere created by its students from many countries. A well-established exchange programme with Junten High School and Hikarigaoka Girls’ High School (our sister school), both located in Japan, has been in place for several years.
The College also hosts fee-paying students from a wide variety of countries. Individual programmes are organised to maximise the benefits of their study. The number of students from each country is limited so that social interaction in spoken English is promoted. Students attend an English language class to further support the learning of the language.
Excellent homestay families, who enjoy hosting overseas students in a safe environment, are provided. This allows our international students to truly experience the “Kiwi” lifestyle.
Sacred Heart College is a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students published by the Ministry of Education.
