Website IssuesCelebrating Catholic Education

 
Welcome to our website......

Sacred Heart School offers tuition in Prep to Year 7 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 week we are celebrating Book Week with the theme "Connect to Reading". Last night we had storytelling in the library and it was great to have the opportunity to share a story with such a receptive audience. During the week the students will be participating in our Readers' Cup challenge which will see students tested as to how well they engaged with selected stories. This Wednesday is our Dress Up Parade and I know many children have been keenly looking forward to the chance to dress up as a character from their favourite book. Over the course of the week we will also have our Book Fair in the library: drop in and take a look at what's on offer!

SCHOOL DISCO
Will be held on Thursday, 11 September in the Hall. Cost is $5 per child or $8 for a family (2 or more children).
Junior Disco for Prep to Year 3 will be held from 5-6pm.
Senior Disco for students in Year 4-7 will be held from 6pm - 7.30pm.

APRE NEWS
First Communion -Preparation Sessions continue this coming Sunday after 8am Mass. Please spend some time with your child during this week discussing and completing the workbook up to the "Last Supper" section. Also, please practise the reception of communion with your child. There is a description for this process in the booklet.

Caring Hearts –There is always someone in our community who is need of some assistance – whether it be a home cooked meal, transport to or from school, home help or babysitting.

BOOK WEEK: 18th - 22nd August
Our Book Week activities will be held this year in week 6 (Aug 18th – 22nd)
The theme for Book Week this year is Connect to Reading.  There will be the usual favourites:

  • Authors Chair
  • Reader's Cup Competition
  • Book Week Dress Up Parade – 8.30 am Wednesday 20th August in the School Hall, when the winners of the signed books will be announced

We will be holding our Annual Carnival Book Fair during Book Week. There will be a large variety of books for sale at prices to suit everyone. This is a wonderful opportunity to buy some great books and help the Library gain new resources as the school receives 25% – 30% of the total sales as our Commission.

If you have a spare 15/20 minutes before or after school that week, we would certainly appreciate your help in the running of the Book Fair.
