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.

 

Community News

WELL DONE SWIMMERS!
Our Sacred Heart swimming squad has been very busy over the last two weeks attending the Catholic Schools’ Swimming Carnival (last Wednesday) and the West Zone Swimming Carnival (yesterday). The competition at both carnivals was quite fierce and our swimmers did an excellent job of representing our school.

P&F WELCOME EVENING
The Sacred Heart Parents & Friends Association will be holding its annual welcome evening at the school this Friday evening 21st February at 5:30 pm. Thank you very much to our P&F committee who have been busy behind the scenes organising this event for our community. I hope to see you there!

SACRAMENTAL PROGRAM
The Sacred Heart Church is once again offering a sacramental program for the students of Sacred Heart Primary School, aged Year 3 and above and the Parish would like to invite your children to participate in this program in 2020. In conducting these sacraments, the Parish is continuing the journey your child began at Baptism, so that they may know more fully the joys of being a member of God’s body, the Church.

As with last year, the program will begin in Term One with the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist will then follow on in terms Two and Three. There will be an information night for parents this Friday the 21st February at 6pm, in the Staff Room of Sacred Heart Primary School. This Friday is also our school welcome night so, if your’e around and thinking about joining the Sacramental program, come on down and say hello.

ASH WEDNESDAY & LENT
Next week takes on a special meaning for Catholics everywhere, as we celebrate Ash Wednesday and the beginning of our Lenten Period. Ash Wednesday opens Lent, a season of fasting and prayer where we prepare for the resurrection of Jesus and is one of the most popular and important holy days in the liturgical calendar. Ash Wednesday takes place 46 days before Easter Sunday, and is chiefly observed by Catholics, although many other Christians observe it too. Ash Wednesday comes from the ancient Jewish tradition of penance and fasting. The practice includes the wearing of ashes on the head. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us.

This Wednesday 26th February we will be celebrating Ash Wednesday with a whole school mass in the church, beginning at 12.00pm. I warmly welcome you to join us on the day.

SHROVE TUESDAY FUNDRAISER FOR MISSIONS
Shrove Tuesday - Pancake Tuesday is in Week 5 – 25/2/2020 (the day before Ash Wednesday) and it is when traditionally Year 6 students sell pikelets to raise funds for the Missions. Pikelets will be sold for morning tea at $1 each or 3 for $2. To assist in the preparation and sale of these pikelets, please fill in the form and return to your class teacher as soon as possible. Order forms were sent home in Week 3.
