Young people learn best when relationships with teachers, students and whānau are mutually respectful, independent, self-regulated learning opens opportunities for students when there are layers of support for their individual needs.

At Sacred Heart Girls’ College, we believe success comes in achieving personal goals that align with individual aspirations, cultural identity, values and life purpose. Every student should have an adult at Sacred Heart who knows her well, can get to know her whānau, and will support her to achieve her goals. Mentoring is a powerful way for our learners to move toward achieving their goals.
Our Ako programme has been designed to promote learning and well-being, also providing the time for relationship building and ongoing communication and mentoring.
