Welcome

On behalf of the Sacred Heart School community I warmly welcome you to our school. Whether you are a current family or a new addition I would hope that the next seven years of your child’s education are happy and filled with the joy of learning.

 

  

Sacred Heart School is one of two Catholic Primary Schools operating in the partnered parishes of Sacred Heart, Newport and St Margaret Mary's, Spotswood. For the purpose of enrolments, a zoning system operates between the schools.  Zoning details may be obtained from the School or Parish Office.

Sacred Heart is a vibrant and supportive community where each child’s learning needs are respected and catered for. We foster in our students an interest in the world around them, in an environment that is nurturing and caring.

The teaching and learning of the Catholic faith is the primary purpose of Sacred Heart School. We endeavour to continue the education in faith already begun by the parents in the years prior to commencing formal education. It continues as a partnership with parents and the Catholic community of Sacred Heart Parish.

The sense of community that exists at Sacred Heart is a strong one. It is exemplified by the willingness of all members (parents, staff, parish priest, pastoral associates and parishioners) to support, encourage and be there for one another.

Our school is characterised by dedicated teaching and administrative staff, caring and responsive family groups and children who possess a love of learning and sense of fun. Our purpose today is to educate for strong, moral and disciplined individuals who strive for excellence and who develop their intellectual, social and creative talents in order to be effective, responsible citizens.

Our students are from many cultural backgrounds, and we follow the ideal of the Christian community in which each learns and grows in an environment of mutual respect and co-operation.

This website presents important information about our school and more details regarding specific procedures and practices can to be found in the "Parent Lounge" - our secure website for Parents and Guardians of students enroled in Sacred Heart School. 

You are welcome to contact the School Office to arrange a time to meet with me to discuss your child's needs or to arrange a tour of our school facilities.

I look forward to formally welcoming you and your child into our school and parish faith community.
