Since the Convent of the Sacred Heart was first built, there have been numerous changes and improvements that the school has decided to manufacture, thus demolishing significant rooms that historical people made a contribution to during their time at the school.

The Alison Waldron Centre finished construction in 2013 and is used as a locker room and learning space for year 7 students. When the convent was built, the nuns were provided a room where they could sleep to accompany the 9 pupils that began boarding. The nuns slept where now, the Alison Waldron Centre is. This has not necessarily been lost physically as it is still used today, but lost spiritually as there are no pieces of evidence or furniture where we can see the nun’s bedrooms. This centre is extremely modern and contains several equipment which did not exist when the nun’s used this space as a room to sleep such as air conditioning and microwaves. This part of Kincoppal - Rose Bay has been lost as it has now been replaced with a contemporary classroom to provide an education to many students.
