Sacre Coeur

Sacre Coeur

Glen Iris VIC, Melbourne Eastern Suburbs

Proudly named after the birthplace in France of our Sacred Heart founder, St Madeleine Sophie Barat, Joigny is a stimulating and caring environment for students from Prep to Year 6.

Children are naturally enthusiastic and curious, which is why the learning experiences we develop build upon their wonder and innate inquisitiveness. A Joigny education invites an exploration of learning, where we encourage each student to develop a sense of herself at school as she explores the curriculum in a variety of ways - independently, collaboratively and actively.

We focus on her social development and critical and creative thinking, both in and beyond the classroom. We also understand each student learns in her own way and at her own rate as we meet her individual needs with a differentiated curriculum.

Small class sizes enable teachers to develop a very clear understanding of each student’s strengths and challenges. This ensures that every Joigny student is well-known and supported by a team of 10 specialist teachers including their dedicated class teacher. These teachers are specialists in Numeracy, Literacy, French, Physical Education, Visual Arts, Music, Choir, Library and Learning Enhancement.

Information Technology is integrated into the curriculum with computers in every classroom, access to computer labs and class iPads from Prep to Year 6.

All classes from Prep to Year 6 engage in the Wellness program which explicitly teaches personal and interpersonal skills to assist the development of social skills, wellbeing practices and self-efficacy.Our nurturing Joigny teachers also work to instil Sacred Heart values so that our girls know, appreciate and express courage and kindness in the service of others.
