From The Board Chair

Our School is run by a Board of local members that manage the Schools’ finances and strategic direction. We interview and appoint all of our staff, including the Principal, and oversee the School finances. I have only recently been appointed to the Chairman of the Board.

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 Catholic School sees attendance at schools such as Sacred Heart as a pre-requisite for acceptance.

In 2010 we completed a major building program, including new early childhood centre, classrooms and library. We also have refurbished the exiting buildings, upgraded the oval and constructed an undercover area. Recently we have resurfaced the hard court and car park, and security fenced the entire school grounds.

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. Attendance is of course optional, but we wish to offer greater flexibility to parents.

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 to IPod’s, IPad’s, Interactive Whiteboards and classroom computers.

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 Therese Hussey at the school on 9629 1174 to discuss these further.

Thank you again for considering Sacred Heart.

Yours faithfully,

Glen Quartermaine
Chairperson
Sacred Heart Catholic School Board.
