Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School

Sacred Heart School is situated in the centre of the city of Launceston. Our boundary streets are, Margaret, York and Bourke Streets.

Our school is a double stream school with two of each grade level from Kindergarten to Grade Six. We have a total of 450 students and 55 staff members.

We are fortunate to have the  Church of the Apostles on our site along with the Launceston Parish Centre.  They provide a visible spiritual connection to our school, a beautiful backdrop to our inner city grounds and playground. 

In 2016 we started Stage 2 of our Capital Project Master Plan; the redevelopment of our Grade 3 and 4 learning spaces, including connecting the P-2 learning centre to this building and library. Our Grade 5 classes moved into this precinct at the end of 2016, creating a P-5 learning hub with our Grade 6 and Kinders sharing the original St. Patrick's building adjacent to the Margaret Street Car Park.  This development promises to create engaging, flexible and adaptable learning spaces for students to learn in a variety of ways.

Our Kindergarten learning spaces have direct access to the Early Childhood playground. Our school continues to find ways to engage our students in the playground. In 2015 we finished two 'loose parts play areas' as well as a Prep/Grade One Cubby House.

In 2016 our Parents and Friends committed funds towards playground projects to enhance more play experiences for our students.

Our beautiful Presentation Gymnasium is located adjacent to our oval and is an iconic space within our School environment.

Before and After School care is located within our school.

Our school is well resourced, with Information and Communication Technology including 1:1 ChromeBooks for our Grade 1 - 6 students.  

The School has lunch orders Tuesdays and Thursdays through the FlexiSchool app and is provided by St. Patrick's College Canteen. We have our own Clothing Store which is usually open Thursdays, 2-4pm. We also have the use of the historic St Albie's Hall during school time. This is a resource shared with the Parish community.  We have a large grassed area, 5 tennis/basketball courts and 3 playground areas with equipment suitable for different ages.

We are proud of our facilities and enjoy using them each day.
