Sacred Heart Parish School in Cunnamulla was established in 1915 and was originally staffed by the Sisters of Mercy, an Irish order founded by Catherine McAuley in 1827.
At the Sacred Heart school we cater for children from Prep to Year 6. The current level of student enrolments allows for close interaction between parents, students and staff. Our shared vision for each student is embedded in our motto “Become Who You Are” where we encourage children to embrace their physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual nature.
We’re a school that prides itself on establishing right relationships with all community members. Our school works as a team in which each of us offers our unique gifts and talents to build the best possible educational environment for the children. We share this responsibility with parents, community members, parishioners and our parish leaders. At our school, we endeavour to live the Gospel values.
I would like to thank all parents and teachers for their support and understanding during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. Even though the term has had an unpredictable ending, Term 1 has included many wonderful learning experiences for our students. The students have embraced the Habits of Mind and Heart framework and we have seen many instances where they have demonstrated our school’s core values. I am very proud of the learning growth our students have already achieved this year.
This week teachers have been busy planning and preparing for learning at home options which will most likely begin to take place in Term 2. Teachers have been investigating the best possible ways our students can access the Australian Curriculum. To ensure we support all of our students, teachers will be providing both online and offline learning options. To take part in the online learning (including live videos of our staff teaching) you will need to download the Microsoft app Teams.
This app will allow our students to access all content and materials, view lesson recordings and participate in live online learning lessons with their teachers. In order to prepare staff, students and parents for this, we would like to invite parents to either make a meeting time in person or make a phone appointment this Thursday 2nd April or Friday 3rd April (between 8am – 3pm) for teachers to demonstrate how to access the content they have prepared. The meetings will only take approximately 10-15 minutes. I strongly encourage you to book an appointment time. CLICK HERE to download the information sheet on how to download Microsoft Teams App to your laptop, iPad, tablet or phone as well as your child’s login and password. If you could download the app before your meeting time it would be beneficial.
We will continue to keep you updated as more information becomes available. I hope you enjoy some quality family time over the Easter break.
