Welcome from Paul

Kia ora koutou

A warm welcome to the community of Sacred Heart School North East Valley Dunedin.  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 maximises 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.
