Sacred Heart Girls’ College is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS).
MACS governs and operates 292 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them.
Recognising the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders.
This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures.
More information on MACS is available at macs.vic.edu.au.
Sacred Heart Girls’ College is a welcoming community in which both students and staff value knowledge, understanding, and kindness. Students are nourished with a diverse range of opportunities, academically and in the arts, social justice, sports, faith, and leadership. Our inclusive community enables staff to bring out each student’s talents and encourages students to reach their full potential. Throughout my time at Sacred Heart, I have built lifelong friendships, and have discovered my passions through the incredible opportunities provided for us.
Sacred Heart Girls’ College is not just a place of education but rather a school community that fosters a sense of belonging, encourages students to always strive to do their best, and to show compassion, respect and inclusivity in all their actions. There are many opportunities to grow as a person and leader, through the diverse range of co-curricular activities, social justice opportunities and leadership roles on offer. Not only will I leave Sacred Heart with an excellent education, but also with compassion and awareness of how everyone in life can make a positive difference to others, especially the disadvantaged and marginalised groups in our society.
Deputy College Captain: Faith
At the College, each and every student is surrounded by a community dedicated to fostering empowerment, resilience and a robust moral guide. At our core, Sacred Heart is a place where everyone is whole-heartedly welcomed and encouraged to develop a strong sense of self, thus creating a cohort of independent, responsible and kind individuals. During my time here I have been privileged enough to find a wonderful group of lifelong friends and build meaningful relationships with those around me. This has truly been a catalyst for my own self-improvement both mentally and physically. I will forever look back fondly at my time here as an indispensable experience and one I will hold close to my heart.
Deputy College Captain: Social Justice
The Sacred Heart community promotes an empowering and hopeful environment that students can immerse themselves in to reach their full potential. Collaboratively working together, each individual is encouraged to face challenges with a spirited and open mind and to face up to societal issues and act where we can. Our inclusivity and diversity are celebrated, which assists our College in reaching out to those facing adversity. As young women, we aspire to listen with empathy, and to speak with justice in the world.

Sacred Heart Girls’ College fosters a supportive environment for all students to thrive in. The College’s strong sense of compassion and generosity empowers us to support one another as we strive towards our personal goals. In particular, the amazing Arts program provides a plethora of opportunities for students to pursue their creative endeavours and share their talents while forming meaningful connections with one another. This highlights the encouraging nature of Sacred Heart. I have always been proud to be part of the Sacred Heart community.
Deputy College Captain: Sport
In my time at Sacred Heart, I have been surrounded by a community which values compassion, inclusivity and justice. The College educates us on broader global issues and encourages generosity through our social justice programs, all whilst maintaining the importance of academic excellence and integrity. We also have many opportunities to be involved in extensive sports and arts programs which are continually developing and cater to everyone. At Sacred Heart embracing all abilities is the key to empowering and appreciating the uniqueness of every Sacred Heart student.
