Welcome To Sacred Heart School!

Thank you for choosing our school. We view education as a partnership between the school, parents and the students. It is important that we all play our part in making this time a happy one for all the children and their families.
One way to ensure this is through quality communication. Discourse is the crucial aspect of ensuring student success. At Sacred Heart School we do this in a number of ways: through the student planners, through parent /teacher conferences, informal discussions, reports, the Parent-Student Handbook and through this website.
This website is to provide you with information regarding the school’s day-to-day routines that are relevant to your child. There is a lot of information here and I suggest you refer to it often for future information, inquiries and an important channel through which to keep current in your child’s learning at Sacred Heart School.

Principal, Mr. Bryan MacLean
