Message from the Principal

We are blessed at Sacred Heart School to provide a Christ-centered and high-quality education focused on the spiritual, academic, emotional, and physical well-being of our students from Wetaskiwin and surrounding areas. By providing diverse programming in academics, athletics, and the arts Sacred Heart staff make it their mission to ensure students with varied interests can achieve success on their journey of faith and learning. 

Faith permeates every aspect of our day. We are all children of God, made in His likeness and it is our hope that our students explore their God-given potential within a safe and caring environment, and use their gifts and talents to glorify Him. 

It is important that our families know that this is their school. We value our families and are committed to supporting them in raising their children in the Catholic faith. Thank you for entrusting us with your children. We are truly fortunate to work together to build a faith-filled community where students are encouraged to let their lights shine brightly for all to see.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, 

so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.’

Matthew 5:16

Sacred Heart School Prayer

Loving Jesus,
By the grace of your Sacred Heart,
Help us to know you, to love you, and to serve you in this life,
So that we may live with you in the next.

Safe and Caring

As Principal, my first responsibility is keeping our students safe. Bullying in all of its forms is not tolerated, or ever ignored. Our students are reminded daily that, “If you see it (bullying), you are a part of it.” Offenses need to be reported for the good of all our students. 

Students who show aggressive behaviour, verbal, social, and/or cyber bullying will take part in restorative practices which emphasize repairing the harm done to people and relationships. We also "discipline with dignity" - an approach that supports interventions and strategies that encourage our students to make better choices. In some cases, a suspension may be part of the consequences.

We believe it is far better to be proactive in preventing situations rather than reactive by teaching social and cultural understanding and respect. Each month, our assemblies feature virtues that emphasize respect, kindness, compassion, tolerance, and honesty. Jesus, our Master Teacher, taught us that we are all children of God, created in His likeness. To that end, we guide our students to treat others as they would like to be treated.
