The Blessing of the Croft Building in Mount Anvil

The opening of the Eliza Croft building at Mount Anville on Friday, 6 March 2015 marked a significant moment in the history of the school linking the inherited tradition of Sacred Heart education with new frontiers in teaching and learning. The Learning Hub, Forum and Outside Learning Space have been designed to facilitate and stimulate a collaborative, student-centred approach to learning which will enable the 21st century learner develop and prepare for the worlds of university and work.

Thus, on the eve of International Women’s Day, it was inspiring for students to witness the blessing, led by a woman of Faith and to hear the story of a young woman representing 21st century learning bringing together the Heritage of Sacred Heart education and the Horizon into the future which the school seeks to accomplish for all students.

Hearts + Minds Exhibition




HEARTS + MINDS is a permanent exhibition installed at Mount Anville House by the Mount Anville Sacred Heart Education Trust.

The title of the exhibition echoes the motto of the Society of the Sacred Heart, Cor unum et anima una in Corde Jesu. The exhibition celebrates the legacy of St Madeleine Sophie Barat, and of the Society, to education in Ireland. This legacy includes the contribution of the Society to female education, to the education of the poor, and to the promotion of the Catholic faith.

HEARTS + MINDS will be a constant reminder to Mount Anville pupils and past pupils that they are part of a word-wide network of Sacred Heart schools, a global family that shares the five goals of Sacred Heart education: faith, character, intellect, community and social awareness.

The exhibition will be open for viewing on Thursdays by appointment. Shortly, a link will be created to the exhibition from the Mount Anville schools websites. In the meantime, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or telephone 01 2122604 to make an appointment to view the exhibition.

Many of you are aware that annually there is an event in Ireland

that attracts large crowds namely the Ploughing Championships.

Over several years now some religious congregations take display stands

at this exhibition for it attracts people from every corner of Ireland.

This year the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Cluny and the Carmelites of Delgany

had particular stalls while several religious congregations took advantage of
the Vocations Ireland and The Irish Missionary Union

presence there to be about and distribute information

 on their particular congregation.

I divided my time between their two places and

offered people the Novena of Confidence and Prayers for different occasions.

Throughout the three days we noticed that people came to

talk in the early morning and the evening after 4.p.m.

when there were fewer people around.

10.30 – 4.p.m. people were more self-conscious

especially if there was a person behind a table.

Once we moved away they would come to the stand and take the literature.
