It’s delicious cheese roll time! Sacred Heart is fundraising for a set of their own ukuleles so our children can take part in the Ukulele Jam this year. You can support us by purchasing delicious home made cheese rolls – 1 dozen for $6 or 3 dozen for $15! You can order and pay at school or online here. Your cheese rolls will be available to collect from Sacred Heart School office on Friday May 29th. Orders and payments need to be made by the Wednesday 20th May.




We will join other Catholic Schools and help fundraise for the Pacific Cyclone Relief Fund to help the people of Vanuatu rebuild their homes, schools and lives after the devastation from Cyclone Pam.


A gold coin donation (or more if you are able) for mufti day on Thursday.

(Mufti means children can wear something other than their normal uniform and they pay for the privilege, the money going to our charity.)
