About Us
Sacred Heart College Hobart

Our school has been a proud part of the Tasmanian Catholic Church since our foundation in 1888 and, as one of Hobart's oldest Colleges, a leading member of the Tasmanian education community for over 120 years. Founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph, Sacred Heart College has a direct link to the Order's founders, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and Father Julian Tenison Woods.

Our mission is to live out the educational vision of those two great heroes of Catholic education and we strive to make our motto Sursum Corda (Lift up your Hearts!) the defining message of hope for our students and staff.

Religion & Mission

In the tradition of the Sisters of St Joseph, Sacred Heart College exists to provide, in a Catholic education environment, a lived experience of the gospel value of all-embracing love symbolised by the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Teaching & Learning’s

The Sacred Heart College Educational Vision for both Lenah Valley and New Town Campus is derived very much from The Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (December 2008).

The school endeavours to instigate invigorating curriculum offering the building blocks for students to become successful learners, confident and creative in their exploration of their learning and who show active and informed citizenship behaviours.
