Welcome to Sacred Heart Primary School. Sacred Heart is recognised for proudly offering a quality inclusive Catholic Education. As the school has grown and changed, it has continued to build on the traditions established by the Sisters of Mercy. Their spirit of commitment, service, compassion and quality still flows through the total school community and is further strengthened by the traditions established by the parents, staff and students over the past 116 years.

We have high expectations for our students academically and deliver an innovative and comprehensive curriculum that promotes creativity, curiosity, tolerance and nurtures self-worth and self-expression. In 2017 we became one of the first Catholic schools in Australia to be accredited as an internationally recognised model “PLC School”. This places us at the forefront of contemporary educational practice.

A distinctive mark of Catholic schools is the emphasis on community – principals, teachers, staff and parents working together and with the wider community to educate and develop the whole child: emotionally, academically, physically, socially and spiritually.

Positive relationships with the students and their families, based on trust, respect and support are built. Each student is highly valued, as is their time with us. We endeavour to unearth their talents, arouse their interests, promote the development of citizenship and personal character and nurture and guide individual growth.

Walking into a school is the perfect way for you to gain an understanding of what it can offer your child and what is valued in the school community. We warmly invite deep and abiding parental involvement in student learning and school life. Communication and consultation are key to ensuring our partnership benefits your child. When we ask our current parents, what drew them to Sacred Heart they often comment that it was the ‘feel’ or ‘vibe’ of the school.

We welcome your interest and feedback and would be pleased to communicate with you further. Please do not hesitate to contact the Office on 50 231204 to discuss any aspect of our school.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Gibson
