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.
PREP TRANSITION DAY
We welcomed the 2021 Prep students for the second transition day on Wednesday the 11th November. Thelma the Unicorn featured as the star of the day and allowed us to complete many fun activities including unicorn/donkey masks, collage, autographs, and pink glitter slime! It is fantastic to see our new cohort of students settling into the school environment so well. We have worked very hard on our transition program this year and are seeing great results from our efforts. We would love to hear from the parents of students who have been part of the transition days to help us reflect on our work and continue to refine the transition process.
Our Year 6 students and Mrs Tolete represented Sacred Heart at the town Remembrance Day service at the fountain last Wednesday. The students read a poem and were flag bearers at the service. The rest of the school observed a minute silence to remember those who served their country during war.
NAIDOC week celebrations were in full swing from Monday 16th to Friday 20th November. The whole school marched in the community march on Monday and on Friday we held a liturgy followed by a range of activities throughout the day. Students took part in storytelling/songs with Uncle Roger, Song/Dance with William and his team, Traditional Games with Deadly Choices staff, Indigenous Craft/painting and made Johnny Cakes with Roberta Thomas. We extend a warm thanks to all who came and ran these activities to help students celebrate NAIDOC week.
