Meet the Principal

Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic School; thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Sacred Heart Catholic School is located on the picturesque northwest coast of Tasmania, where the Josephite spirit and charism are actioned through our school values of ‘Compassion, Gratitude, Honesty, Sustainability, and Inclusion.’ I am privileged to be a part of the Sacred Heart community and the Mersey Leven Parish and will strive to make a difference so that students and staff can flourish.

At our beautiful school, we are not only dedicated to fostering a culture of compassion, gratitude, honesty, sustainability, and inclusion but also hold high expectations for teaching and learning. Staff recognise the transformative power of education, and we aim to provide an environment where excellence is not only encouraged but expected.

Guided by the rich legacy of the Josephite Sisters, we are committed to setting high standards for both educators and students alike. Our teaching and learning branches from a system built upon a foundation of rigorous standards, innovative approaches, and a dedication to continuous improvement through our systems ‘Insight’ project. We believe that through setting and meeting high expectations, we can unlock the full potential of each student and inspire a love for lifelong learning.

We acknowledge parents as their child’s first educators and foster strong partnerships between the school and home. We consider it a privilege when you entrust your children to our community. Our home/school relationships are based on ongoing communication, openness, and trust. Together,

we learn, love and act within a community that endeavours to make Jesus a reality in the lives of every community member. We welcome you to our community. Please contact our administration team should you wish to make an appointment or seek further information about enrolment.
