Sacred Heart College is a community of students, teachers and parents within the Kingdom of God with Christ as its centre and focus. It strives for the total development of the human and spiritual faculties of its members who, in response, are inspired to commit themselves to serve God and their fellow people and make the world a better place in which to live.
As a community, we rely on each other and seek to promote positive, caring relationships among all our members based on mutual respect and love.
We believe in: "Interpersonal relationships which reflect the Mercy values of love, service, justice, trust, hope and mutual respect."
We strive to structure our environment in such a way that these relationships are nurtured within an atmosphere conducive to learning.
The College Justice Policy provides a basis for this nurturing. We recognise that some factors limit the development of an ideal climate of care. Hence, students are encouraged to respond to the needs of others and to develop a sense of responsibility towards the interdependent world in which we live. In keeping with this, this Justice Policy describes the Rights, Responsibilities and Expectations of all members of the College community.
We believe our school policies and practices must be respectful of the dignity, rights and fundamental freedoms of individual students.
Therefore, we aim:
"To live justly, To love tenderly and To walk humbly with God."
