As a Sacred Heart School, we find our meaning and purposes in the educational vision of the Mother Foundress, St Madeleine Sophie Barat, who founded the Society of the Sacred Heart in 1800, in the aftermath of the French Revolution.
We are indebted to the RSCJ sisters resident in the Barat Community who provide that strongest of links for us to the Sacred Heart charism. We are grateful for the spirit of religious-lay collaboration which imbues the school.
