At Sacred Heart College, the charism, vision and values of St Marcellin Champagnat are reflected in the daily lives of boys, staff and Brothers. Our College and community culture are centred on Jesus Christ, modelled by his Mother Mary, and expressed in the distinctive charism of St Marcellin Champagnat. This permeates all aspects of school life.
In 1938, the Marist Brothers brought the educational style of St Marcellin Champagnat to New Zealand. Today, their legacy can be seen at work in Marist Brothers’ schools across the country. We are proud to be part of that story.
As contemporary Marist educators, we aim to consistently fulfil the spiritual, academic and social needs of our students – through leading by example and being guided by our Marist pillars.
The Sacred Heart family consists of students, parents, staff, Marist Brothers, Old Boys and our wider community. Collectively, we are propelled by community spirit and driven to foster warm, supportive and compassionate relationships with those inside and outside our community. The atmosphere in our school is welcoming, warm and down-to-earth, with a deep sense of humility.
