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
CYBER SAFETY VISITOR
Yesterday we were very lucky to have Cliff from Cyber Owls visiting our school to work with the children, staff and parents in the area of cyber safety. Cliff covered topics like password security, protecting your privacy, being aware of potential online threats and how to respond when things don’t go right online. Thank you very much to the parents who attended our parents’ session with Cliff in the evening: I am sure they would agree that it was a very valuable session. If you ever had any questions about cyber safety please remember that, although we aren’t in Cliff’s league, the school staff are here to help you.
Next Wednesday morning is an exciting day for the prep students of 2018 as we hold as our annual Pre-Prep Day. We always look forward to hosting our pre-prep students and showing them what school is all about at Sacred Heart. The end of the year is fast approaching so if you know of someone who is interested in enrolling their child in prep for next year but has yet to contact the school, I ask that you please remind them to come on in a see me!
DIOCESAN READING STRATEGY
This term the teachers continue to be heavily involved in professional development in the area of reading as part of the
Diocesan Reading Strategy. I recommend the following link to a website created by the Toowoomba Catholic Schools Office with lots of information about the work we are doing in this area. Of particular interest to parents are the short video clips featuring our Director of Teaching and Learning, Jim Midgley. As always, the teachers and I are only too happy to meet with you to answer any questions you might have about the Reading Strategy or your child’s academic progress. http://twbtandl.weebly.com/reading-strategy.html
National Bandanna Day is CanTeen’s largest fundraiser and aims to support young people living with cancer. Bandannas will be on sale from Thursday 12 October for $5 and bandannas can be worn to school on Friday 27 October. Thank you for your support.
