Specialist Subjects

At Sacred Heart students take part in one 60-minute session of each specialist subject once per week. In addition to this, there are also celebrations and special days throughout the year for some specialist classes, for example, Cross-Country House-Sports, Athletics House Sports, Italian Day, Junior Unit Social and School Concert.
