We don’t have a model of a Sacred Heart child, of what a child looks like, the model is everyone is different. Whatever your shape is, we’ll make a shape that size in this school.
The education isn’t one dimensional – there is a rigorous curriculum but also other opportunities for people who aren’t purely academic to shine. Creative minds flourish here.
When I was at another school, I feared the matrics. Here, there is a family spirit, I am free to be myself and express myself freely. It’s so unique, they are so accepting of you, it is an all-round family of respect.
It’s not one kind of person, it’s a mix of people, there are lots of differences; religions, race, background. When we connect with different people, we don’t have societies perceptions, we are opened to others.
It is a sense of family – I feel I am connected to everyone who has this blazer.
I see my peers as the greatest people because they are so open minded and view other people as equals whether it is gender fluidity or issues of hair.
There are no separations between grades, we do things together. The unity comes from a culture of seeing everyone in the school as equals.
When I walk into other schools, it’s just buildings. Here it’s people, a strong sense of family that you don’t get at other schools.

On March 7th 2014, we sat amidst the mist and watched silhouettes dance in the fog. Arms around each other and lunch-boxes in hand, we shared the blissful silence. Our legs may have been frozen but our crazy imaginations definitely weren’t. We spoke about Nuinidolmos (a penguin, unicorn, dolphin with a moustache) while our feet […]
