We encourage you to take a moment to complete the survey. It is an opportunity to celebrate what makes Sacred Heart a wonderful and effective learning community and to reflect on areas in which we can keep improving. The link for parents is:

The surveys are only open until the 9th August 2019.
Stage 3 - Bake a Book
Beginning Week 4 and running untill the end of Term, the Stage 3 students will be baking cakes based on their favourite book. Each year some wonderful cakes are made. Again this year we will be cutting up the cake and selling the pieces each Wednesday at recess from Week 4 until Week 10. It will be for 50c per piece. The Stage 3 students are required to include a list of ingredients and of course they will be nut free.
Please ensure that your child also has recess for that day in case the cakes sell out. We look forward to your support.

Support our fete and Support our sponsors. Here is our growing list......
Yesterday Sacred Heart participated in the south side Oz Tag Gala Day at Deakin. We had 59 students attend from 3/4 and 5/6. The students performed extremely well, we had a combination of students who had played oz tag before and some who had never played. They played with excellent sportsmanship and with the Sacred Heart Spirit. It was a wonderful day.Here are some pictures of the Sacred Heart Primary School Oz Tag teams.
Sacred Heart will be celebrating National Science Week (10-18th August) with the school participating in a range of science activities throughout the week.
A collaborative opportunity for the students will take place on Friday 16th August with the construction of a Space Shuttle. We would like families to collect a small amount of recyclable material to contribute to the building of the Space Shuttle. Items that are cylinder in shape such as plastic bottles or paper towel rolls as well as bottle lids and general cardboard from boxes (no bigger than cereal size) would be appreciated. The students will be working in the multi-age groups they formed for Peer Support to complete this activity, so all student’s materials will be combined.
We encourage students to start collecting their recyclable materials now and to bring them into school from Monday 12th August.
