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.
This week, we welcome all students back to school for normal school operations. We have been certainly looking forward to this week. It has been wonderful to see the students smiling faces again and their eagerness to catch up with their friends and teachers.
Our students are back into the routine of learning in their classrooms. Teachers have been working hard to plan fun and engaging units of work for the remainder of the term. Teachers have also been testing student reading levels and it has been wonderful to see the reading growth that has continued to occur since term 2 begun. Keep up the fantastic work students!
NATIONAL SIMULTANEOUS STORYTIME
Tomorrow 27th May at 11am, the whole school will be reading the story Chicken Divas by Lucinda Gifford, for National Simultaneous Storytime. This is a wonderful initiative that supports reading and children’s literacy. In 2019, 1,138,889 children read simultaneously at 11,554 locations across the two nations of Australia and New Zealand.
FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DROUGHT FUNDING
As previously advised, Sacred Heart had received some drought funding from the Federal Government. As part of this drought relief funding, Sacred Heart is offering families a fee concession and all students a winter tracksuit and school shirt. The tracksuits have arrived and are ready to be picked up from the school office. It is perfect timing as the weather starts to cool off. I do stress the importance of parents labelling their child’s uniforms.
