There are five Sacred Heart Goals of Sacred Heart Education. Each year the Sacré Cœur community confers a particular emphasis on one of the five. This annual goal is known as the Focus Goal. Each of the goals is addressed over a five year cycle. Even though there is a special accent on the annual Focus Goal, the community continues its commitment to ‘living out' each of the goals every year.
The Principal and the Sophie Team are entrusted with the responsibility of being the custodians of the ‘Sacred Heart Ethos' within the School, in particular, ensuring that each year's Focus Goal is ‘lived out' actively by the school community.
