Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
More “wrong coming up to face us everywhere…”
Convent & Stuart Hall is pleased to introduce you to the school's new website, the product of two years of strategic design. One of the core pillars of our strategic plan centered on enriching communications and included a mandate to "increase the standard of communication" with our extended community of students, alumni, parents, trustees and friends of the Sacred Heart family. The new website was designed to be an engaging and representative deliverable in service of this charge.
After countless hours of research, analysis, training and exploration, the new site is live.
