On behalf of our beautiful school family, I warmly welcome you to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School. I hope this is the beginning of a long and lasting association with OLSH, filled with wonderful memories.
As you look through our website, you will see glimpses of our stunning location, our proud culture and the wonderful learning opportunities that we offer our students. This site will help you to help to feel informed about all our latest news and achievements and what it’s like to live, work, pray and learn in the Torres Straits. We have included information for those considering a move to Thursday Island, as well as career opportunities in our school.
We are here to support you as the first educators of your children. Our families, school, Church and community work together as partners to help our students grow in faith and knowledge and live life to the full. I trust that you will always feel welcome, informed and encouraged. I invite you to participate in all aspects of school life by contributing your ideas, energy, time and skills to the school.
Each child and parent who is part of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School community is called upon to foster Gospel values, striving to accept each other as unique persons created by God. Our school is a vibrant and friendly environment where students and staff of many different origins walk together on the journey of learning for life.
We truly care about our students, their learning, their health and their emotional well-being. We are committed to providing a supportive and positive learning environment in which every child’s individual needs, skills and talents can be identified and nurtured so that they have a sense of belonging, a love of learning and respect for each other.
We are a family, and my door is always open.
Wishing you God’s every blessing.
