From our Principal

We are immensely proud of our students whose collective results have been excellent. Throughout the year, our students approached all aspects of school life at Sacré Cœur with zest. This attitude of our VCE students also permeated their diligent approach to their studies, which saw them remain focused, resolute and steadfast.

Working closely with their dedicated and experienced teachers, the Year 12 Class of 2022 achieved significant success. We extend our congratulations to each of our VCE students, including our Year 11 students who undertook the study of a Unit 3/4 subject.

I extend my warmest congratulations to our 2022 Dux, Emily Prater, who achieved an ATAR of 99.9. Emily, throughout her years at Sacré Cœur, availed herself of a broad range of educational opportunities. She received a number of awards in her six years at the School, including the prestigious Premier’s Award for Biology in 2021 as a Year 11 student and the Australian Defence Force Future Innovator’s Award at Vale this year. Emily has also received Colours for Study and Subject Awards each year during her time at Sacré Cœur. She has been a highly valued member of the Sports and Music Programs. Emily was recognised for her involvement in a variety of extra-curricular enrichment programs, including the Big Science Competition, the Australian Mathematics Competition and the Computational and Algorithmic Thinking Competition. Emily’s involvement in many aspects of life at School also included her selection as part of the Sacred Heart Exchange Program, which saw her attending our sister school, Baradene, in Auckland.

I would also like to congratulate the following students, who achieved a perfect study score of 50: Elizabeth Lahy (Business Management), Olivia Pepe (English), Alessia Martino (Health and Human Development) and Lucy Westmore (Psychology).

Success comes in countless forms at Sacré Cœur.

This success is not possible without the cultivation of a love of learning imparted by teachers of the highest quality; indeed, I thank all our staff for their staunch commitment, expert guidance and passion.

With pride, we recognise the achievements of the Class of 2022 and extend our very best wishes to each of our students. I am greatly assured that the Class of 2022 will undertake future endeavours with courage, confidence and firm convictions, developed through their education at Sacré Cœur.

Our brand-new STEAM learning centre — the St Madeleine Sophie Barat Centre — is a transformative space that celebrates our commitment to education in science, technology, mathematics and creative arts.

Known as the Sophie Centre, the building emphasises a cross-curricular approach, continuing Sacré Cœur’s historic ethos, which has always strived to create well-rounded, future ready young women.

Learning at all Levels

Students will move seamlessly between a range of modern, expansive spaces across multiple levels. The Sophie Centre features a multi-level Junior and Senior library, three light-filled science and technology laboratories, an inspiring creative arts hub, an amphitheatre, and numerous indoor and outdoor breakout learning spaces.

The crown of the Sophie Centre is a rooftop terrace with 270-degree views that serves as a breakout area for outdoor learning and a scenic setting for school functions.

Expansive Junior School Spaces

The Sophie Centre features a Junior School library and IT laboratory that will ignite our younger students’ passion for learning. Education also extends outside of the Sophie Centre — with inspiring new playground spaces and curated landscaping for our Junior School.

Eco Focused Design

The building is environmentally designed to meet 21st century standards. It features solar panels, use of rainwater, smart temperature control, motion-controlled LED lights, excellent ventilation and extensive windows for light filled learning.
