Our school’s pedagogy reflects the overarching principles and approach to learning outlined in the Sydney Catholic Schools’ Statement on Authentic Learning. By connecting to the real world of students’ lives, authentic learning enables students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. Authentic learning is central to our work as Catholic educators because it promotes the continual growth and wellbeing of the whole person; spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.
The Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School vision for learning comprises the three key elements of achievement, wellbeing and engagement each of which is underpinned by our central focus on relationships. The solid foundation of relationships together with the three pillars of Achievement, Wellbeing and Engagement support the high quality learning and teaching which is our core business.Our Sacred Heart ‘Vision for Learning’ is underpinned by our seven key principals as outlined in our Sacred Heart Learning Framework.

The designated device for yrs 3–6 at Sacred Heart is an Apple iPad.
