Welcome to Sacred Heart School, Dunedin
Respect, Humanity, Justice, Truth in the Dominican Tradition
Sacred Heart School is a Catholic Primary School, located in North East Valley, Dunedin. Students at Sacred Hearth benefit from our highly qualified and dedicated teachers and a child-focused Board of Trustees. We pride ourselves on our caring environment, constructive relationships with our local community and our consistently high academic achievement.
We welcome enquiries from new families, and have places available for Catholic and non-Catholic children. Please contact us to find out more.
Sacred Heart School aims to provide children with the skills to develop their full potential spiritually, academically, physically and culturally.
At Sacred Heart School we recognise the intrinsic dignity and individuality of each child and build on their natural desire to inquire and learn. We therefore aim through our influence, example, commitment and effort, to provide our children with a superior education in a safe, caring and supportive environment, to foster their healthy self-esteem and respect for themselves and each other, and to nurture their continuing spiritual development.
A welcome from Paul

A warm welcome to the community of Sacred Heart School North East Valley Dunedin. I hope you find our developing website interesting and informative. Here at Sacred Heart we are continually focused on what is best for our children in all that we do. It is a privilege for me to lead this community and to be part of a Board of Trustees that is strongly focused on the success and fulfillment of every child.
This is made possible by highly qualified and skilled staff, who in turn, enjoy strong family support. As a Catholic school, we draw on our faith and values to develop a sense of justice and caring for others in our children.
Research tells us that children achieve best in communities where there is a high level of pastoral care, parent interest and involvement. Such an environment maximizes opportunities for children to excel in their educational, spiritual and personal development.
I believe that these factors account for our successes and strong reputation as a Dunedin City school. I would be delighted to meet with you at any time.
