Welcome to Sacred Heart Girls’ College, Hamilton.

Established by the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions (RNDM), Sacred Heart Girls’ College is situated in Hamilton East, the oldest suburb in Hamilton.

We acknowledge Ngati Wairere as Mana Whenua and the original owners of the land that Sacred Heart Girls’ College has stood on since 1884.

Poipoia te kākano kia puāwai / Nurture the seed and it will blossom

We have a long history and an outstanding reputation for providing quality Catholic education: faith-filled, aspirational and challenging. We aim to continue to nurture a culture of learning and well-being through a contemporary, inclusive, holistic framework, underpinned by Gospel values. The virtues of Faith, Hope and Justice focus our attention and intention on how we live out the legacy of Euphrasie Barbier and the Mission Charism: Communion, Contemplation and Mission.
