Welcome from our Headmaster, Patrick Walsh

Kia ora Koutou,

 “If you want to teach young people, first you must love them.  You must love them all equally” St Marcellin Champagnat.

 The founder of our Catholic College knew that at the centre of education is the child who must be known, loved and nurtured. At Sacred Heart College we envision teaching as a vocation and a school as “student centred”. We deeply appreciate that you only get one shot at a high-quality secondary education. We firmly believe that Sacred Heart College offers a well-rounded, holistic Catholic education in the Marist tradition. These foundations allow our young men to excel in all aspects of school life.

Sacred Heart College is proud of its traditions, history, and values. We are equally proud to be future focussed, innovative, encouraging our young men to be positive change agents in the world.  

The College boasts outstanding academic results, state of the art facilities and dedicated staff. We are also honoured to claim Jesus Christ as our “superhero” and Mary his Mother our guide and strength.

You will discover that Sacred Heart College opens up a world of opportunity for your son. It will develop his faith, fulfil his academic potential, and provide opportunities for sporting and cultural excellence.

Our young men develop lifelong friendships and become people of faith and character. Sacred Heart graduates are rightly proud that the College has assisted them to reach their full potential and prepare them for a complex and ever-changing world. 

We welcome the opportunity to start your son this exciting journey!
