Welcome to our website.....
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.
Congratulations to all our Year 3 and Year 5 students. Sacred Heart Cunnamulla is the highest performing school in Queensland, on an ICSEA score of 825, for both Year 3 and Year 5 NAPLAN. Each school is given an ICSEA score (index of community socio-educational advantage) and Sacred Heart has topped the board in comparison to schools who are a similar make up to ours according to this scale. The students and teachers should be very proud of their achievements and their dedication to learning. Well done!

This term students have started learning Auslan (sign language) during family group time on Wednesday afternoons. So far students have learnt basic greetings such as… “how are you?”, what’s your name?”, “pleased to meet you” and “my name is….” They have also learnt the alphabet and performed the Alphabet song last Friday on assembly.
We are now beginning to learn emergency response words to assist a deaf person requiring medical help. (“Where’s the pain?”, “I can help you”, “stay calm” etc.)
All students are progressing well and have shown a great interest in learning this language.
