From The Board Chair

Our School is run by a Board of local members that manage the Schools’ finances and strategic direction. The Board assists in interviewing and appointing staff, including the Principal, and oversees the School finances.

We teach children the importance of values such as discipline and respect and the role that religious faith plays in our lives. It is my belief that Sacred Heart students have the maximum range of secondary school options available to them upon their graduation at both local and city schools. In fact more and more secondary schools sees attendance at schools such as Sacred Heart, as a pre-requisite for acceptance.

The school was remodelled in 2011 with a major building program, including new early childhood centre, classrooms and library. Included in this was the refurbishment of existing buildings, upgrading the oval and construction of an undercover area. Sacred Heart is an accredited Water Wise school and has installed a solar generation system making our School totally self-sufficient in electricity. We also run a recycling program. These initiatives teach children to appreciate the value of finite resources.

We offer Kindergarten 3 days each week with a Pre Kindy (3 Year Old) Program being offered for two morning sessions each week. Attendance to these programs are optional with Pre Primary being the first formal year of schooling

Students at Sacred Heart actively participate in sport, music and other activity programs. These activities expose your child to a cultural and arts program, and display the benefits of working together as team. This coupled with an up-to-date IT program sees our students have access a one-to-one device program

We would welcome your Child’s enrolment at Sacred Heart, and welcome your involvement in our School community, be it as a member of our Parents and Friends Association or as a member of our School Board.

We would also welcome your feedback and any further questions that you may have. Please feel free to contact Steve Miranda at the school on 9629 1174 to discuss these further

Thank you again for considering Sacred Heart.

Yours faithfully,

Travis Robert
Chairperson
Sacred Heart Catholic School Board.
