The College is strong on positive behavior, which revolves around praising and reinforcing positive student behavior in all aspects of College life. The College merit system is integral part of this process. Students receive merits for positive academic and co curricular contributions and for trying their best. The merits are recorded and students move up through a hierarchy of award certificates, culminating in the College Medal for those students who have attained 120 merits for positive contribution to the life of the College.

At Sacred Heart we also take the opportunity to acknowledge the efforts and achievements of our students in the wider community, whether this be on the sporting fields or the performing Arts. This is undertaken regularly at our full school assemblies.
