Each application for enrolment is considered on the basis of places, resources and facilities available at that given time. Unfortunately, in most cases, the School does not receive the level of funding that public schools do for special needs and as such our capacity to cater for all special needs is limited.
The continued enrolment of students is dependent on their behaviour being in accordance with the school rules and regulations, as amended from time to time. Excursion and out of school activity privileges may be forfeited with failure to comply with these rules. For further details regarding discipline see the School Discipline Policy.
Mission and Community Service Program
Part of our commitment to the development of the whole child at SHCS is to help them achieve an outward focus. As an element of this, our entire student body is involved in the Compassion Child sponsorship program. The students are encouraged to bring a weekly coin contribution to help those less fortunate than themselves.
