Dear Parents and Carers,
2021 has not been an easy year for many of us at Sacred Heart, with tragedy and loss of the deepest kind but once again in the true nature of SHPS we have looked out for each other and found the nurturing power of this wonderful community.
We extend our thanks and appreciation for your support and wish you a peaceful and joy filled Christmas.
Take care over the holiday break and we look forward to seeing you in the new year.
For those children and families leaving us at the end of the year we wish you every blessing and thank you for the gift of your presence. We will miss you.
The first day for children in 2022 is Monday 31st January.
For those members of our community planning the year ahead we have pupil free days on Tuesday 26th April and Monday 18th July.
We hope you have been able to enjoy this years virtual Christmas Carols.
Take care and keep safe
