Enrolling your child at Sacred Heart
All children are welcomed at Sacred Heart Catholic School regardless of their religious background.
We welcome families to join our School community and apply for Kindergarten enrolments for 2019. Applications for Kindergarten enrolments are open throughout this year and interviews begin in Term 3 and orientation throughout Term 4. Enrolments for our current kindergarten class and all other grades may be accepted throughout the year pending availability.
Families are invited to contact the School for an enrolment package. If you have any queries throughout the enrolment process, please contact the School and a member of the leadership team will be happy to guide you through the process.
Our school fees are set annually. School fees and levies are necessary to supplement State and Commonwealth grants, provide sufficient funds to operate the school, and provide support for the educational environment and structure of the school.
There may be some families who don’t enrol their children in Catholic schools because of concerns about the level of fees and levies charged.
Catholic schools are accessible to all families willing to support the Catholic ethos regardless of their personal, financial and pastoral circumstances. No child will be denied a place in a Catholic school because of financial hardship.
Families who are interested in Catholic education and feel they could benefit from financial support are encouraged to contact the School. All enquiries are managed sensitively and within privacy guidelines.
We encourage our students to wear their uniform with pride! Your support in this is greatly appreciated.
Our uniform shop if open Monday and Wednesday from 8.30am to 9.15am and on Thursday between 2.30pm and 3.15pm. All uniform items are available from our shop and there is also a large supply of second hand uniforms available.
Continuing your child’s Catholic education
The majority of our students continue their education at Marist Regional College Burnie or St Brendan-Shaw College Devonport. Sacred Heart is a feeder school for these Colleges and families interested in continuing within the Catholic education system of schools and colleges are invited to contact the Colleges directly to discuss their child’s enrolment. Our Grade 5/6 classes visit both Colleges as part of their transition to Year 7.
