Five Goals of Sacred Heart Education
Guided by five goals of Sacred Heart Education
At Kincoppal-Rose Bay, the school is guided and connected by the educational vision of Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat, Foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart. Madeleine Sophie’s vision is articulated in the five goals of a Sacred Heart education:
These goals ensure that our education is holistic and tailored to the growth of the individual, whilst bringing about a more just world. In doing so, we live out our school motto, ‘Cor Unum’ meaning One Heart, which calls our students into a genuine relationship with God, each other and the world.
A personal and active faith in God
We encourage students to reflect on their life experiences in the light of Scriptures to deepen the meaning of their lives.
A deep respect for intellectual values
We impart a love of learning. Students understand that learning involves many experiences beyond the classroom and is a lifelong privilege.
The building of community as a Christian value
We strive to provide a strong sense of community underpinned by Christian values. We encourage students to live as alert and responsible citizens.
A social awareness which impels to action
We invite students to deepen their understanding of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation. In doing so, we encourage them to act against oppression and injustice.
Personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom
We encourage students to know themselves and to appreciate how they will use their strengths and abilities to make a difference in the world.
