The Master Plan contains a number of projects which are being strategically undertaken to improve the school's facilities.
On 6 May 2010, the new Wilmer Kirby Centre, funded by the Federal Government's Building Education Revolution, was officially opened. This space is now widely used and staff and students are enjoying the delights of Wilmer's Cafeteria.
Our new science building, the Janet Erskine Stuart Centre, was opened in a dramatic ceremony on 9 October 2012 with formal classes commencing in 2013.
The building is named after Janet Erskine Stuart RSCJ, one of the important founding sisters of the Society of the Sacred Heart and whose approach to education is still as relevant today as it was during her life time.
In her opening address, Principal, Ms Maureen Ryan said, “Janet Erskine Stuart chose as a priority, to understand and love each religious and each child under her care- providing the kind of work and projects that would bring out their best in each one.”
This stunning building could not have been possible without the assistance and generosity of the Sacré Cœur community. A heartfelt thanks is extended to all those who have donated so generously to the Focus on Science Capital Appeal.
The Sacré Cœur Foundation has been in existence since 2004. Since then, it has made a significant contribution to school development having been supportive of the refurbishment of the school chapel, the external renovation of the historic Brynmawr, and the renovation and extension of the Joigny Junior School. Led by past parent, Mr Tony Busuttil, the Foundation Board meets regularly to plan its ongoing support of the school and the co-ordinating of all school fundraising.
The work of the Foundation remains as central and important to future school development as it has been since its establishment. Now that the Janet Erskine Stuart Centre has been completed, the Foundation is putting all its efforts behind the fundraising for Stage 2 of the Focus on Science Capital Appeal for the refurbishment of the school's science laboratories.
To date, $800,000 has been raised or pledged, but much more is needed to reach the Foundation's target of $1.3 million towards the total cost of $2.25 million. Stage 2 will not be commenced until the target is met.
