Founder's Day 2018

Posted on 11 May 2018
Founder's Day 2018

Friday 11 May was a significant occasion as special guests, Marist Brothers, Hall of Honour inductees and their families,

staff and students of Sacred Heart College gathered for Founders' Day; Our first official gathering as one community from
Sacred Heart Middle, Marymount and Sacred Heart Senior.


Our Liturgy focussed on the Family Spirit that binds our school and this was showcased through the short film We are
Sacred Heart which captured the breadth of our community through interviews and archival footage. The film has been
uploaded onto the SHC Website Homepage as well as the Sacred Heart College facebook page.


We also commissioned the new Aboriginal artwork on the gates of the Main Oval carpark. The mural was designed by
prominent South Australian Aboriginal Artist, Allan Sumner, and showcases Aboriginal culture and its importance within
the Sacred Heart community.


Following the Liturgy, the 2,000 strong contingent of staff and students marched to Seacliff in solidarity with our global
Marist community. Over $10,000 was raised for Marist projects in Sri Lanka, India, Fiji and the Philippines where a group
of Year 11 students and staff will visit later in the year as part of the Marist Immersion Experience. The funds raised will
rebuild classrooms in Southern India and the Philippines, upgrade living and working facilities for Marist Brothers in Fiji
and the Philippines, and assist trainee Brothers in Sri Lanka. Furthermore, we will provide countless amounts of stationary,
books and other educational material for primary and secondary students across Marist schools in these four countries.
Most exciting about the walk was the opportunity for students across the three campuses to walk together in House groups.
It was no surprise that our Year 6 and 7's were at the front of the pack and certainly set a solid pace for our senior students!
House Captains proudly flew the house banners upon departure and was a wonderful sight to see our entire student body
participate in the march with such enthusiasm and vigour for the cause in which we were celebrating.


Despite the cool weather and a drop of rain, the warm Family Spirit was clearly evident as we acknowledged our Marian
heritage and Marist mission as one Sacred Heart College!

Champagnat Campus in Progress

Posted by Sacred Heart College on 26 January 2018
Champagnat Campus in Progress

Following the announcement in October 2016, the amalgamation process between Sacred Heart College and Marymount College is well underway, including lots of building works taking place throughout the school holidays at the Mitchell Park in preparation for the new Champagnat Campus.

In 2019, girls from Marymount College at Hove will relocate to create a co-educational Year 7 to 9 campus at Sacred Heart College, Mitchell Park. This will be known as Champagnat Campus.

In order to facilitate this, additional buildings are required together with some refurbishment to existing buildings at the Mitchell Park site, currently known as Sacred Heart College Middle School.

This is the largest project to be undertaken by Sacred Heart in recent memory, meeting the contemporary learning needs of younger students across Years 7 to 9 in a co-educational context, whilst forging the foundation of the Sacred Heart 'family spirit' for which we are renowned.

Ms Kate Kilpatrick is the newly appointed Head of Champagnat Campus at Sacred Heart College. Kate will commence at the Marymount Campus in 2018 and transition with the community to the refurbished Champagnat Campus at Mitchell Park in 2019. Kate is currently the Deputy Principal at St Mark's College, Port Pirie, having previously been Head of Middle School at Cardijn College, Noarlunga Downs. Kate is currently completing a Master of Philosophy (research) focused on the effectiveness of 'The Rite Journey' program, which includes study of the differentials between adolescent males and females - an apparent connection to the context of the Year 7-9 co-educational campus!

Sacred Heart College will continue to be a co-educational Day and Boarding school for students in Years 7-12.
