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 to keep children safe, from both physical and mental harm. Bullying in all of its forms is not tolerated, or ever ignored. Students who partake in aggressive behaviour will be counseled and reprimanded and in some cases unfortunately, asked to leave the school.

We also believe that it is far better to be proactive to prevent situations than to be reactive. Several years ago, Sacred Heart embarked on an Alberta Teachers’ Association initiative as a designated Safe and Caring School. With “Niska” as our mascot, this is a comprehensive program with weekly and monthly theme to be proactive in keeping children safe from bullying by teaching social and cultural understanding and respect. We have monthly Safe and Caring Assemblies featuring a virtue of the month. We also have a Peer Mediation team, and an anonymous “Stop a Bully” mail box.

Children are educated that, “If you see it (bullying), you are a part of it.” Offenses need to be reported for the good of all. As always, disciplining is done with respect of the individuals, as Christ, the Master Teacher, would have us treat all of his children.
