Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!
On behalf of all of our staff, I welcome all families and their children to another exciting year at Sacred Heart Catholic School. We want every student and their family to feel a part of our school community and we will work tirelessly to ensure all students feel welcome and grow and learn in Catholic Education.
The Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board has a rich history of providing quality Catholic education to our students. We are proud of our history and our accomplishments and know that our future is full of hope. Sacred Heart Catholic School is an important part of this rich and proud history and we continue to commit ourselves to graduating students who have enriched their lives and learning through the experience of Catholic Education.
The Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations (OCGE) drive the teaching and learning that our staff lead in every class as we seek to create discerning believers, effective communicators, reflective and holistic creative thinkers, life-long learners, collaborative contributors, caring family members, and responsible citizens.
In our partnership with the Church, Home, and School, we seek to fulfill student learning through the exploration of the OCGE’s in all classes and subject areas. Equally important to the partnership of Church, Home and School is Sacramental Preparation for our primary students to prepare for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion and for our Intermediate students to prepare for Confirmation. We work closely with Father Morrison to prepare our students for receiving these Sacraments and the entire school also regularly attends Mass with Father at Sacred Heart Church just up the street from the school.
This year’s theme for Catholic Education is “Living as Joyful Disciples”. For each of us, whether a student, parent, or staff member, we are called to follow Christ’s teachings as joyful disciples. Following Jesus Christ’s Golden Rule to “"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" (Luke 6:31) is at the heart of our teaching and the learning for our students.
Again, on behalf of all our staff at Sacred Heart Catholic School, we welcome all students and their families for another exciting school year.
