As a Catholic College in the Marist tradition, Sacred Heart College places great emphasis on 'being Marist'. We use the Marist characteristics of Presence, Family Spirit, Simplicity, In the Way of Mary and Love of Work to define what constitutes appropriate conduct.
Each year many Sacred Heart students represent South Australia in various sports and also gain selection in the representative teams for the Sports Association for Adelaide Schools (SAAS) and the SA Catholic Secondary School Girls Sports Association (SACSSGSA). Our students also compete against teams from all areas of the State in many of the Statewide Knockout competitions.
Students are also frequently involved with Interschool competitions and various Marist competitions.
All students are expected to represent the College as their first priority and in preference to other clubs. No elite sporting student is disadvantaged in any way by representing Sacred Heart College. The College is supplied with all information from affiliated bodies when the various state and representative team nominations are due.
