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.
The Sacred Heart community fosters a diverse culture, empowering every individual to grow into strong, resilient and courageous young women. Provided with countless opportunities in both studies and activities, our College encourages us to develop our knowledge, learn new skills and explore new adventures and interests. Something I have grown to admire about Sacred Heart Girls’ College, is the welcoming nature of our community as it continuously supports us in pursuing our dreams and passions.

The Sacred Heart community embraces the diversity of cultures and ensures the inclusion of all. We have a plethora of opportunities to utilise our gifts across the areas of sport, the arts, academic excellence, leadership and social justice. Through the nurturing of our uniqueness and talents we grow in confidence and are encouraged to be informed and to actively contribute to our community. The College’s strong sense of social responsibility has had a profound impact on my interest and confidence in speaking to and acting on relevant matters at a local and global level.
Deputy College Captain: Faith
Through my time at Sacred Heart, I have become so grateful for the strong community here that is built on values like respect, faith and compassion. There is always someone nearby who you can talk to, whether it is a staff member or a student. The people around us are always ready to support us, encourage us and challenge us to strive for excellence. It is easy to recognise a Sacred Heart student, because I find that they are the person who is always ready to help you out or to make sure you are ok.
Deputy College Captain: Social Justice
Sacred Heart Girls’ College is a welcoming community in which everyone is valued for who they are. We are all encouraged to explore different interests and develop new skills which has created a vibrant and diverse environment. Underpinning Sacred Heart, is the steadfast focus on generosity and compassion, instilled in us from the beginning, that empowers us, as young women, to reach out in our support of those in our world who are less fortunate.
Deputy College Captain: Arts
Our amazing Arts Program provides an avenue for students from Year 7 to 12 to achieve personal growth and share their gifts and talents in a nurturing, inclusive and fun environment. It is a program that allows students to freely pursue their creative endeavours and shine in their own unique way. I love how the Arts program brings together all ages and year levels and enables students to build really close friendships, while inspiring us to always strive upwards to reach our goals. I have always been proud to be part of the Sacred Heart community.
Deputy College Captain: Sport
The Sacred Heart community is one which cares deeply about everyone. It allows for students to be themselves and grow up in an encouraging and welcoming environment. Students are able to express themselves through co-curricular activities such as sport and art and meet others with the same interests. There is always a friend for everyone, to ensure we all bring out the best in each other, helping us thrive together. This is why I am so proud to be part of the Sacred Heart Community.
