At Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, the person of Jesus Christ is at the heart of what we teach and how we teach it. His example inspires us to ensure that our teaching is reflective of modern society and generates a search for meaning. Our curriculum provides stimulating teaching and learning programs which will equip our students to face the challenges of the 21st Century.
We aim to develop in our students, independence by providing opportunities for inquiry learning, problem solving and decision making to help them make meaning of their own lives. Our Educational programs are mandated by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). Our Religion curriculum is provided by Sydney Catholic Schools.
Staff at Sacred Heart engage in ongoing professional learning experiences to support the implementation of this 21st century curriculum, committed to the creation of excellent programs using the Key Learning Areas of Religion, English, Mathematics, History, Geography, Science, Physical Education, Personal Development and Health and the Creative Arts.

The school bases its program on the NESA PDHPE syllabus. This program encourages fitness and the development of skills. Each class is taught by a specialist PE teacher.
Children are to wear their sports uniform to school on their class designated sports day, which will be advised by your teacher.
The incursions we have organised in the past, complimented the introduction of the new NSW Science and Technology syllabus, especially with the renewed focus on Digital Technology.
Annual Science Week
Our annual Science week is a highly anticipated event, by both students and staff.
Science Week 2020 - The Deep Ocean
Our school has certainly gone for a deep dive into the ocean this Science week. A trip to the library and Year 3 shows the extent of the work that all teachers and children have gone to, to learn about the depths of the ocean. The children have been happily sharing their learning about the ocean and in particular the effect of pollutants and rubbish in the ocean. Thank you to Mosman Council’s environmental team who visited. Thank you to Dr Alana Wylie from Eye Heart Science who updated us on the Deep Ocean scientific facts in grade groups. Thank you Mrs Petersen and all our teachers for making it such an exciting week.
