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.

THE HEART AWARD
At assembly on Monday June 11, Tyce Fraser and Nhial Bangjak were the very first students to receive Sacred Heart ribbons for exceptional behaviour in the learning environment. Our Student Welfare Framework, which you can find published on our school webpage, outlines explicitly how we aim to promote a positive, productive and positive Catholic environment at school. When we create such an environment, all our students are well placed to achieve academic success in the learning environment. Congratulations to these two boys for taking responsibility for their actions and contributing so positively to the 2 J learning environment.

REPORTING
This time of the school term, teachers spend much time in the assessing and reporting space. Report cards will be sent home with your child on Wednesday June 27. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate any success your child may have had- no matter how big or small. Michael Grose (a parenting expert) suggests some things that parents can do around reading their child’s report.

  1. Focus on the strengths of your child.
  2. Consider your child’s effort and attitude to learning. If the report indicates that effort is below standard, then you have something to work on. If your child is putting in the required effort, then you cannot ask any more than that, regardless of the grading.
  3. Discuss the report card with your son/daughter talking about strengths first before looking at areas that need improvement. Ask for their opinion about how they performed. They are a very good judge of their own achievements.

If there are any concerns around your son/daughter’s report card, please make an appointment to discuss this with the class teacher.

SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT SURVEY
This year our school will be participating in a School Review and Improvement Survey managed by Research Australia Development and Innovation Institute (RADII). As well as school staff and students from Years 5 - 12, all parents are invited to participate in the survey. The survey provides valuable feedback for the future directions of our school. It would be appreciated if parents could update their contact details prior to the 24 June 2018. This will ensure delivery to the correct parent email addresses are available. On Monday, 23 July 2018, RADII will send all parents a personalized invitation to complete the survey online. If both parents' email addresses are on file at the school, the invitation will be sent to both parents. However, the survey will close once the first person has completed it. If you do not wish to complete the survey, simply delete it. The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. You can complete the survey from anywhere you have access to the internet. The survey will close on Sunday, 12 August 2018 for parents. We encourage you to be very honest in your responses to the surveys. All responses go directly to RADII so they are confidential and anonymous. When the surveys are completed, and responses aggregated by RADII, overall data is sent to us so that we can then share the findings with you.

DISCO
A school disco for all Sacred Heart students will be held on Thursday 21 June in the school hall from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. The cost is $5 per child or $8 for a family (2 or more children). A canteen will be operating for snack and drink purchases. We look forward to seeing you there!

P&F MEETING
The next P & F Meeting will be held on Monday, 25 June at 7pm in the staff room. Everyone is welcome to attend.
