Sacred Heart Primary School
SCHOOL LOGO -The school crest was designed by the Loreto Sisters and reflects the unity of the Trinity, which is reflected in family and school. The movement is directed upwards in praise of God from whom all good things come.
SCHOOL MOTTO – The school motto was developed at the same time and illustrates from scripture the school’s name – the Sacred Heart of Jesus: GOD IS LOVE – And anyone who lives in love, lives in God and God in that person (1 John 4:16).
SCHOOL HISTORY – The Loreto Sisters founded Sacred Heart School in 1965. Initially the school as situated at Tonbridge Way and operated as a single stream school. During the early 80’s it was evident that the school would not be able to cope with the increased enrolments due to development in the area. The decision was made to move to our present site to accommodate a double stream school.
At the beginning of 1988 the Junior Primary classes were established and by 1994 the school had grown to a full double stream from Pre-Primary to Year Seven with a Special Education Centre. Four year old Kindergarten commenced in 1997. Three year old Kindergarten and before and after school care began in 2006 and a purpose built K3 room and child care facility was opened in 2008. As part of Catholic Education Policy, Year Six is now the final enrolment year at Sacred Heart. The school currently has an enrolment of approximately 450 students.
