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.
SACRED HEART DAY
Last Friday we celebrated Sacred Heart Day with a range of small group art & craft activities and a whole school BBQ lunch. It wasn’t what we would usually do but we still had a great time and showed that even COVID can’t hold us back; the Sacred Heart spirit is still going strong. I would like to thank all the staff for helping out on the day, especially Mrs Gath, Mrs Armstrong, Mrs Weber and Ms McNeil for all their efforts planning and running the lunch and craft events. I’d also like to thank the Year 6 leaders who helped setup, clean up and run events, we couldn’t have done it without all your help. Make sure you visit the schools Facebook page and see the great video Mrs Menkins has made of all the students having a great day.
SOCIAL JUSTICE PROJECT
Our Social Justice project is almost complete and the donations from our school community has been over-whelming and heart-warming. Thank you to all who have donated to the Winter Woolies Drive with blankets, jumpers, socks, scarves and more, and those who have given personal hygiene and pantry staples to support those in the Toowoomba Community who are struggling this Winter. The extent of the donations has allowed the class to expand and support several other organisations. We have now sent supplies to the Multicultural Centre which supports refugees and those new to our area settle in and build a support network; Emerge Youth Hub a place for youth in the Toowoomba region who are experiencing hardships such as homelessness, social disadvantage, poverty and racial exclusion. Next week we will complete and deliver our donations to Rosies on the Street Outreach, The Base Services Soup Kitchen, and Free on a Tree. Thursday will see the final part of the project come together when the 6B class puts on their Sausage Sizzle to raise funds to the Base Services Beds in a Backpack program. We have approximately 200 orders. A huge thank you to the Desmond family who own Emerald Refrigerated Logistics Pty Ltd, who have donated the funds to purchase the sausages, etc allowing all money raised on the day to go towards the Beds in Backpacks. The class is amazed by our beautiful community's generosity.
We still have vacancies for Prep 2021. Now that school is back to a normal routine, we will be conducting interviews over the next couple of weeks. If you have any or know of any children who are Prep ready for next year, please contact the office as soon as possible.
