Welcome to the Sacred Heart Primary School, Highgate website.
Sacred Heart Primary School in Highgate, is a Catholic co-educational Primary School, catering for approximately 250 children across Three Year old Pre Kindy, (Little Hearts), Four Year old Kindergarten, and the compulsory schooling years of Pre Primary to Year Six.
Our school serves the parish communities of Highgate, Maylands, East Perth, Mt Lawley, and the Archdiocese of Perth.
Here at Sacred Heart, we value every child, and aim to create an environment which enables all children to experience joy and fulfilment throughout their primary school years.
The Teaching and Learning programme at Sacred Heart provides a wide range of educational and faith experiences. Our school aims to further develop each child intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, physically and socially, thus creating lifelong learners who have the ability to draw upon processes and skills, to cope with future technologies in a changing society. This enables each child to reach their God-given potential, whilst exploring the wonders of our world, and others.
Our school strives to be accepting of multicultural and individual differences. It acknowledges the rights of children to be safe, and values them through the administration of pastoral care. Our traditional and heritage listed buildings, together with other outstanding facilities, learning spaces and resources, combine to foster an atmosphere that values excellence.
Our school acknowledges parents as the primary educators of their children, and shares strong partnerships with our families. We actively encourage and support parents in understanding their role alongside the school, and welcome their involvement. This home- school relationship is centred in ongoing communication, shared values, openness and trust.
We feel privileged to share in the learning journey with you, and will be happy to discuss your child’s individual needs, and the services offered by Sacred Heart Primary School, Highgate.
