Learning Support/Resource


The Resource Department is an integral part of Sacred Heart Secondary School. The main aim of the Resource Department is to cater for students who require additional support in their academic subjects. Classes take place on an individual or small group basis for first to sixth years.

The Resource Department works closely and on a continuous basis with Class Teachers, the School Guidance Counsellors, Deputy Principal and the Principal to ensure that all students’ needs are identified and in turn necessary provisions and programmes are put in place to guarantee that students receive the necessary help to aid their academic success in school.
