Welcome to Sacred Heart Primary School, Cunnamulla. My name is Polly Crawford and I have had the pleasure of leading the staff and students of Sacred Heart as Principal since 2018.
We strive to provide learning opportunities where all students experience academic success while developing knowledge, beliefs and practices of the Catholic faith.
As a Catholic primary school in a remote setting, we provide an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students. We are passionate about providing quality education and innovative resources that supports students’ growth and development and prepares them for life-long learning.
I am proud to lead a professional teaching team who are enthusiastic and dedicated in guiding our students to achieve our goal of developing 'expert learners'.
Our teachers aim to meet every child where they are at in their learning journey and deliver customised, rich and challenging learning experiences that draw upon the school’s vision “Become Who You Are”, using the latest research and pedagogy. School data along with our school Habits of the Mind, are utilised to empower and guide students to meet their learning goals.
My background has seen me teach in many settings including in leadership and as a classroom teacher in rural and remote schools across South West Queensland, internationally and in a bilingual school in the Northern Territory.
We acknowledge the crucial partnership between parents and the school community in order to best support the learning and social/emotional needs of our students. Whether it’s individual success stories, or achievements at the wider school level, our community helps to celebrate all wins, big and small.
I invite you to come and meet me personally, tour our school and see first-hand the excellent teaching and learning that happens at Sacred Heart.
