Kaylene Carlin


Hello! My name is Kaylene Carlin and I am privileged to be leading the Sacred Heart school community as School Principal. This is my fifth year as Principal of this wonderful school. Throughout my career I have been an educator in primary, secondary and university settings. I have also had a research career whilst engaged through the Melbourne University Graduate School of Education and mentored many pre-service & beginning teachers as they commence their careers as teachers.

I love coming to work every day! It is important to me as School Principal to build connections with as many children and families as I can. Children and families are why we are here. I am blessed to be working with a staff who are passionate, energetic and committed to your child in every way.

When I am not at Sacred Heart, I love spending time with my husband, Craig, our five children, their partners, our five precious grandchildren and our beautiful spoodle, Alfie.  We love to travel, exploring new places, cultures and food.
