Principal's Message

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Primary School is a co-educational Catholic school in the Brisbane suburb of Dar​​ra. The school currently has 545 students enrolled in 21 classes from Prep to Year 6. OLSH school has an ethos based on Gospel Values. Our focus is showing respect for each other. We are a multicultural community that celebrates the richness of a variety of cultures.

Whilst our school has a heavy emphasis on the teaching of Numeracy and Literacy and ensuring all children have the foundational knowledge preparing them for a wide scope of learning, we also value the teaching of the performing arts subjects. With a whole school musical biennially and instrumental and drama lessons happening in school time, children continue to grow in confidence through a variety of subjects.

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart is a place where God is named and recognised. The curriculum is designed in such a way that students develop openness to truth, a tolerance of different views and an ability to judge critically and become inner-directed.

The school, therefore, does not refer to buildings, but rather people. Parents, students and teachers together make up a faith community, which reflects our love of God. OLSH is simply a Great School – Getting even better!

I welcome you to our website and encourage you to allow us the opportunity to show you our wonderful school.
