Home, Sacred Heart Petone
Welcome to


We welcome you and your family to the community of Sacred Heart Primary School, Petone, a Catholic primary school for girls and boys from Year 1 to Year 8. Teachers and parents are committed to uphold the Special Character of the school within the Parish of the Holy Spirit Te Wairua Tapu. The Special Character is reflected in our school and in our School Values.

Sacred Heart School, in partnership with parents and caregivers, will develop the talents of each child. We will value and encourage the spiritual, emotional, and cultural identity of each child. We will support and foster academic growth and physical well being. Through our influence and example our students will become caring, confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners.

RISE Values

These are our school values and they are supported by Gospel Stories.
We also have Catholic Social Teaching as a base for our Special Character.

RED traffic Light Setting

Sun Jan 23 03:40pm

As you would have heard today the whole country will be moving into Red on the traffic light settings at 11.59pm tonight (Sunday 23rd January). We will let you know later this week what this will mean for school next week.

The Ministry of Education sent guidelines out last year and these will be updated on Tuesday this week. Our Leadership Team will meet  to go over our processes and we will let you know what these are by the end of this week.

Schools will remain open in all settings. We urge everyone in the community to get vaccinated, get your booster and consider vaccinating your children as this provides the best defence.

The start of the year may be a bit different to normal but it will be great to see our community again on February 2nd.


Tue Jan 18 06:27pm

Stationery lists were sent home at the end of last year and are also on our website. Please ensure your children have their stationery on the first day of school.

Uniform shop

The shop will open from 10am to 12pm on Monday 31st January 2022. It will then resume normal hours from Term 1.

If you are interested in helping out in the uniform shop this year, please contact the office.

Don’t forget that all tamariki between 5 and 11 years of age are now eligible for their COVID vaccination. Vaccination is the best defence against COVID.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at 9am on Wednesday 2nd February.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year with your families. I had my family with me in Wellington including  my nephew from Auckland! I  also hope you have been enjoying the lovely weather.

Swimming starts in Week 2 of the term. 

I will be back at school the week after Anniversary Weekend. We are still awaiting an update from the Ministry of Education regarding what Orange Level means for us at school.

Happy New Year!
