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.
What a term this has been for Sacred Heart and what a term it has been for me! Sitting and writing this I reflect and think about what a whirlwind this last 10 weeks has been and all the amazing experiences I have had in my first term as a member of the Sacred Heart community. Thanks to the kindness and support of all the staff, students and families it has been a wonderful time, with some key moments really standing out for me;
The first day of term – I had the expected butterflies on my first day, but they were quickly dispelled by the smiles and welcomes I received from everyone in the community. It meant so much to me to welcomed in such a joyous and open manner by everyone I met.
Tuesdays in Year 5 – Every Tuesday I have replaced Miss. Jolley in Year 5 and have really enjoyed the opportunity to keep in touch with my craft and work with such a great bunch of kids. Some days in the office I can get to 3pm and feel like I haven’t really interacted with the students so Tuesday in Year 5 is something I really look forward to.
Ash Wednesday Mass – This was the first whole school mass I organized for the year and it was amazing to see our entire community come together in worship and praise. Working in a range of schools in the past has highlighted to me the irreplaceable role our Catholic faith plays in the school environment. Not only does it guide us spiritually, it provides a shared understanding for the development of a school community anchored in the Gospel values of faith, service and love. Seeing our students joining together and celebrating those values on Ash Wednesday was a real highlight for me as a new APRE.
Easter Pageant – Wow! What a performance, and once again, what a great example of our community coming together to strengthen and celebrate the Catholic values that underpin our faith. I love a good performance and Mrs Rosier and the students did not disappoint; well done to all of them on their hard work and dedication.
I could keep writing if I wanted to but, I only have so much space so, I’ll stop there. I’ll finish by thanking you all for the effort you’ve made to make me feel welcome in this new school. Coming to work every day I feel proud to be a part of the Sacred Heart community and look forward to all the challenges and successes that come my way each day. Thank you for a terrific first term and I look forward to seeing you all after the break.

SACRED HEART CROSS COUNTRY
We have been busy over the last few weeks getting ready for our annual cross-country carnival. This event is being held on the school oval on Thursday 4th April, commencing at 9:00 am. This is always a great morning and the children would love to see you there cheering them on. I encourage spectators to bring a camp chair as seating is always in short supply.
