Welcome to our website......

Sacred Heart School offers tuition in Prep to Year 6 within a caring, supportive, community-oriented environment. Our classrooms are equipped with the latest technology. Outdoor activities are catered for with large grassed playing areas, cement areas marked for games, fully shaded sandpits, and several colourful playgrounds covered by shade cloth and supported by soft fall.  Our multi-purpose hall incorporates full sized basketball, netball and tennis facilities. The school grounds (4.7 hectares) also include an outdoors Multi-Purpose Court for tennis, basketball, netball and volleyball; an oval for football and cricket; and two cricket nets (synthetic turf).

As per our Mission Statement, the education offered at Sacred Heart aims to develop the knowledge, beliefs and practices of the Catholic faith; reflecting at all times on our vision to “Journey everyday with Jesus in our hearts”.

We endeavour to facilitate each child’s journey towards their potential through quality learning and teaching practices. The common goal shared between school and home is to support each child’s development:
~ Spiritually
~ Physically
~ Intellectually
~ Socially
~ Emotionally
~ Morally

We invite parents who are considering sending their child/children to Sacred Heart to visit the school, to view the facilities and speak with staff regarding any queries you may have.


Community News & Events

This Friday is the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence. At our school we aim to create a safe and supportive school community for everyone. Sometimes, it can be difficult for parents or carers to know what to do when their child talks to them about bullying. This week's newsletter contains some tips, taken from the "Bullying No Way" website. http://www.bullyingnoway.gov.au 

During the week, the children at Sacred Heart will be learning about different strategies they can use to help say ‘No way!’ to bullying. Thanks for your support to make our school a great school for everyone.

EASTER PAGEANT
You are all very welcome to attend the school Easter Pageant on Wednesday March 29 at 9 am. The celebration will take place in the Parish Hall. The theme for this year is ‘Walking the Path of Jesus’. We will follow the footsteps Jesus took beginning with Palm Sunday and finishing with his death- Good Friday. When we return from holidays, we will celebrate his resurrection through a whole school prayer celebration.

PREP 2018 ENROLMENTS
We will be holding interviews for new families in the last couple of weeks of this term. If you have a child to enrol in Prep for next year, please complete and return an enrolment application form to the office as soon as possible. An enrolment application form can be found in the side panel of the newsletter or collected from the office. Interviews for existing families will be held early in Term 2.

HARMONY DAY
Harmony Day is held each year on 21st March. It is a day to celebrate our cultural diversity and is about inclusiveness,
respect and a sense of belonging for everyone. Harmony Day coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

The message of Harmony Day, 2017 is “Everyone Belongs”

Did you know?

  • Over the last 70 years seven million migrants have made Australia their home.
  • Almost half of Australians were born overseas or have a parent who was.
  • People from more than 200 countries make up our Australian community and 300 languages are spoken in our homes.
  • Apart from English the most common languages spoken in Australia are Mandarin, Italian, Arabic, Cantonese, Greek, Vietnamese, Tagalog/Filipino, Spanish and Hindi.

At Sacred Heart School we have families from a range of cultures and countries including:

Australia Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Philippines
Fiji Sudan Vietnam
Congo Columbia India
Zimbabwe Indonesia New Zealand

We have families who are born in Australia along with those from refugee and immigrant backgrounds.

This year we would like to acknowledge our diversity at Sacred Heart. On Tuesday 21st March the children will be involved in activities in their classroom with the emphasis being ‘Harmony Day’. Prep to Year 2 children will be asked to decorate a paper cut out shape to represent themselves. Year 3 to Year 6 children will be asked to design a poster around the theme ‘Everyone Belongs at Sacred Heart.’ The intention of these activities is to demonstrate and celebrate our unique community made up of many different cultures. Children’s work will be displayed around the school. Maybe you could ask your child to show you their work.
