Welcome to HERstory, the digital archives of Sacred Heart Girls’ College, Hamilton.

HERstory began 135 years ago when the Mission Sisters founded the College in 1884. We are now digitally capturing this rich history, tracing the footsteps of alumni through the years and delivering it to you for your enjoyment. Our key objective is to create a repository in which past and current students, teachers and their families can visit to reminisce and reconnect through the photos, articles and stories of the many generations of women that have and will become part of our HERstory.

Using the search tools you can easily explore the many photos, school magazines and collections available. You may also like to join our HERstory Facebook page as here we will keep you up to date with new site content and also seek your input as we identify unmarked photos and memorabilia.

We hope you enjoy reminiscing and reconnecting with your HERstory.
