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.
Last week, all Catholic schools across Queensland celebrated Catholic Education Week. This annual event is held to promote the special ethos of Catholic Schools and to highlight the great things that take place in Catholic schools everyday. The theme this year was: Discovering New Horizons. You may have seen the banner hanging up outside the front of school.
Catholic Education strives to make a difference in the lives of those in our schools and in the wider community by challenging young people to live out the message of Jesus and to reach their full potential as a compassionate, contributing, life-giving members of society. There are 304 Catholic schools in Queensland that educate around 147,000 students and employ more than 19,000 teachers and staff, and most of whom celebrated Catholic Education Week in some way last week.
Last Monday, all of the Sacred Heart Staff attended Bishop’s Inservice Day in Quilpie along with staff from St Finbarr’s Quilpie, St Mary’s Charleville and members from the Toowoomba Catholic Schools Office Leadership Team. Our special guests were Fr Richard Leonard, Bishop Robert McGuckin and Dr Pat Coughlin. Fr Richard Leonard spoke about the ‘big picture’ of young people and religion in Australia today. He also explored 4 signs of Liberation – obedience (through listening), joy (tell your face about it), compassion (fellow feeling) and humility (being grounded). He was a very engaging speaker and I am sure every staff member took something away from it.
Also, during Catholic Education week teachers, parents and the Year 5/6 students are invited to fill in a school satisfaction survey. Some parents may have received an email already. This data is collected each year and your response is very important to us to continually improve our school. If you did not receive an email, you can still do the survey anonymously using the following information.
Parent Survey ID: 6895-RrpA
Closing Date: 12th August, 2018
CANBERRA TRIP 2018
In Week 2, the Year 6 students and Miss Crawford had a wonderful time exploring the sights of Sydney and Canberra along with St Finbarr’s Quilpie and St Mary’s Charleville. The students thoroughly enjoyed visiting Questacon, participating in a role-play at old and new Parliament House, laying a wreath and exploring the discovery zone at the War Memorial Museum and seeing snow for the first time. Students also loved ten pin bowling and playing laser skirmish in the evenings. We would like to sincerely thank our wonderful Year 6 parents who have spent the year fundraising to enable our students to have the opportunity to visit Canberra. It was definitely a worthwhile experience!!
