Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Primary School is a place where God is named and central to all we do. Families, students and teachers make up our faith community which reflects our commitment to the Catholic faith and the development of the whole person. We are proud of our history of providing high-quality education within the Catholic tradition. Our school is committed to meeting the challenges of education today and in the future, i​n order to provide students with the skills necessary to progress further along the lifelong journey of education.

The Australian Curriculum is the source of all curriculum planning, assessment and reporting at OLSH. We teach all subject areas with an emphasis on the teaching of Numeracy and Literacy. We promote engagement in the Performing Arts including student involvement in a whole-school musical and the Choral Festival. Students also have the opportunity to participate in private instrumental and drama lessons. 

We teach Positive Behaviour for Learning and promote the 'Super Learning Qualities' of determination, self-awareness, persistence, being reflective, using feedback and making connections. We also encourage students to develop an openness to truth, a tolerance of different views and an ability to critically reflect. 

I welcome you to our website and encourage you to allow us the opportunity to show you our wonderful school where 'every face has a place'.
