Founded in 2016, Sacred Heart Marist Observatory's mission is to follow the Marist philosophy to give special attention to the poor and neglected by addressing the educational needs of both the refugee population and other at-risk students in South Africa. Our goal is to ensure social justice for these most marginalized children in our global community.
When you donate to Sacred Heart you provide learners with a stimulating and innovative education; a nurturing environment; a culturally diverse experience; and to develop each learner as an independent and critical thinker. When children leave Sacred Heart College to make their way in the world they are hopeful, thoughtful, skilled, socially and politically aware, and committed to making a difference. We believe that they can – and will – change South Africa and the world.
One of our goals is to create a place of learning, where the warmth of welcome, acceptance and belonging prevail.
In the face of growing injustice and inequality, many talented young people are never given the opportunity to succeed. Sacred Heart College recognizes the need to nurture pupils from a range of economic, social, spiritual and cultural backgrounds. We are determined not to become a school that only the very wealthy can access, as this only serves to perpetuate the widening gap between the 'haves' and 'have nots' in South Africa.
We also believe that, in the context of a failing education system, it is critical to create pockets of excellence for the future of our country. Our scholarship program is an investment in a young person’s future, but it is so much more than that. It is an investment in our collective future as citizens of the world. The returns on this investment are incalculable – and will reverberate forever.
