At the heart of something special

What sets Sacred Heart School of Halifax apart?
“To view Sacred Heart as only a “school” is to sell it short. Sacred Heart is family. It is a place where each individual, no matter their role, works and grows together. This sense of unity is the key to a truly unique and purposeful environment where work, heart, and play coexist. These conditions afforded me a great many opportunities for personal development that I otherwise wouldn’t have experienced.”
~ Richard Drake ‘12
