Learning for life

The curriculum at Sacred Heart Catholic School is based on the Australian Curriculum with our Catholic values integrated into all areas of the curriculum. Additionally, Aboriginal perspectives have been woven throughout the curriculum. Our qualified staff consistently strive to ensure current best practice is delivered through engaging in local school and system-based professional learning. 

More information on the Australian Curriculum can be accessed via their website


Religious Education

Our staff develop their own understanding of their faith guided by the Good News for Living Religious Education guidelines. Their learning is then passed on to your child through our Religious Education classes and through the day-to-day living out of our Gospel values.

The school week also begins with a prayer assembly each Monday as we gather as one community to share the Good News. This is led by a different class each week. During the remainder of the week the school day starts with class prayer with the students regularly accepting responsibility for prayer time.

Students in Grade 6 also participate in the Make Jesus Real program. This program provides students will the tools they need to live out a positive, faith filled life. 

The Sacramental programs of Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation are offered through the Mersey Leven Parish and supported by the School.
