|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:
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
Welcome to 2016 at Sacred Heart! Over the holidays, with the financial support of our P&F Association, we have installed air-conditioning in all our active classrooms. I know that the children have already been enjoying a much more comfortable learning environment as a result of this project and I thank the P&F for their support. We have also been busy preparing for the introduction of iPads for every student in Year One. The Year One students will start to receive their iPads this week and we are very keen to see them being put in to action to help support student learning.
Next week, (Week 3: 8-12 Feb), we have a busy week to look forward to. Tuesday is Shrove Tuesday (9th), closely followed by Ash Wednesday (10th). These are significant days in the Church calendar and we warmly invite you to join us for Mass (Yr 4-6) or Liturgy (Prep – 3 in the hall) on Wednesday at 12pm. On Wednesday (10th) evening, we are also holding parent information sessions for Years 2-6. These sessions are a great way to find out about what is going on in your child’s class and to get to know their teacher. A timetable for these meetings will be sent home later this week. Our school swimming squad will have its first outing of the year at the Catholic Schools’ Swimming Carnival on Thursday (11th). Mr Toohey will be sending home notes to eligible students later this week. To finish off a very busy week, on Friday 12th February, our P&F Association will hold its annual Welcome BBQ. This event is always an enjoyable night and a great opportunity for our school community to celebrate the start of a new school year. Details for this event are contained later in the newsletter and I hope you and your family will be able to come along and join in the fun.
The Parish Sacramental Program (Reconciliation and First Eucharist) begins with a Commitment Ceremony on Sunday 7th February at 9am Mass. If you would like your child to be involved in this program please call at the office for an enrolment form. Please contact me for further information. Maria Booth
