Welcome To Sacred Heart School!

Thank you for your interest in Sacred Heart School! At Sacred Heart School we challenge ourselves to provide a dynamic educational program for our students, that embraces diversity, but ultimately allows our students to learn in a community that allows them to be themselves.

At Sacred Heart we use our strategic location in the City of Prince George to create a truly unique experience for our students. We are within walking distance to a variety of facilities such as the Canfor Leisure Pool, Rolling Mix Concrete Arena, the Two Rivers Art Gallery, Exploration Place Museum, as well as the Prince George Public Library. These facilities allow us as a school to capitalize on great opportunities for experiential learning through a large variety of programming options.

On top of teaching British Columbia’s curriculum as set forth by the Ministry of Education, we offer many opportunities for extracurricular activities. These include cross country running, basketball, volleyball, and soccer for a variety of sport opportunities. In the arts, we have a school wide play every two years, participate in the speech arts festival annually, as well as our much anticipated Christmas Concert every year during the Christmas Season.

We are undergoing many changes to the exterior of our facility, where we are seeing continual improvements to our playground and field areas for our students to enjoy. Further, we are in the process of developing an outdoor learning space in our school garden for our students to enjoy alternate learning spaces!

Principal's Message:

Sacred Heart School is a wonderful place for students to grow as learners and as individuals.

Our mission and vision of the school is student-centered, with an emphasis towards spiritual and intellectual development. My philosophy of education is rooted in nurturing the student, so that they thrive both intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. By interweaving both curriculum and our Catholic World View, the holistic education of each child means cultivating them through the body, mind, and spirit. I also place great respect in recognizing that parents and families are a child's first educators, and that in honoring cultural tradition, we can continue to build a school environment of respect, dignity, and acceptance.

With the care and diligence that comes with nurturing and supporting our student’s needs, our staff members provide an environment that promotes inclusivity and collaboration. The culture of our school is one where education is both innovative and inclusive, and one where all caregivers come together for the benefit of the student, to uplift, motivate, and teach with the goal of creating confident and intelligent leaders.

Sacred Heart staff members come to us with a variety of gifts, talents, and with open hearts to accept the role as teacher within our school community. They bring an expansive range of knowledge and experience, and work with an abundant amount of respect and grace towards students and families. Their time spent volunteering, mentoring, tutoring, and supporting both students and each other sets a standard of excellence above all others.

If you wish to be part of our excellent school community, or have any other questions about the school, I encourage you to look through our website or contact me personally by phone or email. I look forward to speaking with you and answering any questions you may have.

I await the opportunity to welcome you to our Sacred Heart school community.
