History:

Established by the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in 1938 as a commercial college for four students, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College has flourished over the past 75 years. By 1951, the year of the first Matriculation class, it was a complete secondary school and had moved into the permanent building, which is still part of the College complex. As numbers of students increased, facilities were developed to cater for them: science laboratories in the 1960s, the library in the early 1970s, new wings for classrooms and administration in 1981, the hall complex in 1988, Information Technology in 1993 and a performing arts complex in 1997.


Description:

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College caters for approximately 680 girls in Years 7 to 12. The primary objective of the college is to develop a close community, fostering a love of God and a school life characterised by gospel ideals. It offers students an all-round development of mind, body and character, and encourages students to become responsible individuals with strong Christian values.

A broad curriculum includes studies in Religious Education, Humanities, Languages Other than English (Italian and Chinese [Mandarin]), Mathematics, Sciences, Information Technology, Commerce, Personal Development, Technology Studies and the Arts. This breadth of subjects ensures that students have the necessary prerequisites for the Victorian Certificate of Education and Tertiary Study. VCE students are offered the dual-recognition VET Office Administration course.
