Introduction

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College has a proud tradition of being at the forefront of educational practice. Our curriculum has been designed to address the needs of 21st century students.

 

Through the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) we respond to the social and personal world of young people and recognise that, in order for students to learn effectively, we need to address issues such as resilience and the capacity to build effective relationships. Emotional and social development are integrated into the curriculum and addressed through the Pastoral Care Program at the College.

Whether in the Arts or Humanities, Maths or Sciences, OLSH classrooms are vibrant and energising places. Indeed, the range of subjects on offer is significant, allowing students to pursue their passions and develop key skills across a broad range of disciplines.

We truly embrace the contemporary notion that education is a lifelong journey that is nurtured in a dynamic classroom environment and reaches out from there into every aspect of the life of the young person. Our strong links with the community reflect this focus.

Besides enabling students to achieve competency and confidence in literacy, numeracy and information technology, the learning experience is designed to develop manual, physical and social skills, initiative and creativity. Through research, problem solving, decision-making and critical thinking, students are encouraged to become independent learners, assuming responsibility for their own lives and contributing actively to society.
