As Educators of the Sacred Heart, we are privileged to work with young girls and women from Prep to Year 12 as we guide their heads and their hearts in all they do. Our girls seek to contribute to their local communities and to the world.
We provide our students with the necessary skills to equip them for a changing world of work. We want our girls to graduate from Sacré Cœur with the capability, confidence and courage to live their lives to the full.
We are delighted to share with you our Vision Statement which is
“Sacré Cœur Women Shape the World”.
This strong statement reflects our existing and future aspirations for our young women and it is authentic to our Sacred Heart tradition.
It follows then, our Purpose is to
“Educate and Empower our Women to Make a Profound Contribution to Their World”.
This Purpose Statement reflects our commitment to educate each child, not just academically, but holistically with the goal of empowering her and building her confidence and resilience to respond to change and to live her life with a future focus.
Central to this Strategic Plan are what we term our ‘Cor Unum Values’ that lie at the heart of our school culture and these are
Tenacity Excellence Resilience Respect Authenticity Integrity Nurture.
Each of these Cor Unum Values reflects the behaviours and attitudes that we encourage and celebrate most within our community. These Values form the acronym TERRAIN – for it is from this solid ground that our decision making, strategic thinking and leadership is informed.
In developing our Strategy we considered five domains of our school life, namely Products and Services, People and Relationships, Growth, Brand and Reputation and Financial Strength.
Sacré Cœur has been built upon a proud tradition of sharing our gifts and talents with others and this Plan invites continued commitment to this spirit of collaboration. This is why every member of our community has a pivotal role in the delivery of our strategy.
In an ever-changing world, there has never been a better, or more challenging time to lead a girls’ school. As a community, we will be the richer for implementing this Plan. We proudly share it with you and look forward to working together to achieve our goals.
We have every confidence that each member of our Sacré Cœur community will work individually and collectively to make a significant contribution to achieve the strategic initiatives detailed in our Plan.
