Welcome to Sacred Heart Pymble!
As a member of system of schools known as Catholic Schools Broken Bay we seek to inspire hearts and minds to know Christ, to love learning, to use their talents to be the very best they can be.
Our principal, teachers, staff and parents all work together with the wider community to deliver authentic, professional Catholic education with care and compassion.
Our teachers are committed to the mission of Catholic education and apply evidence-based practice to support students to learn and to gain the confidence and skills to enable them to be involved in shaping their society.
DO YOU NEED TO BE CATHOLIC TO ATTEND A CATHOLIC SCHOOL?
No, your child does not need to be Catholic to enrol at a Catholic school. While preference is given to students of the Catholic faith, particularly if you are active in your parish, our schools welcome families from all backgrounds or faith traditions who share in our mission and purpose.
Catholic Schools Broken Bay will offer K-12 enrolment during 2021. This will provide you with some surety around enrolment in our systemic secondary colleges for your child. As the option becomes available, you will only need to provide one enrolment form in primary school and complete a simple updated form to ensure your child’s continued enrolment in one of our systemic secondary colleges.
Sacred Heart Catholic School serves the parish of Sacred Heart Pymble. We follow the enrolment procedures specified in the Catholic Schools Office, Broken Bay Enrolment Policy.
The enrolment process for families considering Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School for their child starting usually begins in March of the preceding year.
‘Come and See Big School’ is Sacred Heart’s Open Day, and includes tours of classrooms and facilities, and opportunities to ask questions.
Part of the enrolment process is also the opportunity for children and parents to meet with the School Principal and one of the Pymble Parish Priests.
Parent information sessions and transition mornings for the children are held during the first few weeks of term four. At this time, senior students are also appointed to act as mentors for each new Kindergarten student at Sacred Heart. Our senior students ‘buddies’ take great pride in this aspect of their leadership role as seniors of the school.
Considering a pathway to Catholic high school education? St Leo’s Catholic College is a comprehensive, coeducational secondary College located in the heart of Wahroonga. St Leo’s along with Sacred Heart form part of the Community of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Broken Bay.
