I warmly welcome you to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School Website. Our school is a reflection of the history and traditions of the Torres Strait in a contemporary learning environment, celebrating the uniqueness of the many cultures that are represented on our Islands.
Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School has proudly established two campuses that support the families and students on Thursday Island and Hammond Island. Our Early Childhood Campus on Hammond Island and Prep to Year 6 Primary Campus on Thursday Island are signs of our commitment to providing strong learning foundations that nurture young students in our communities, strengthening their sense of identity, wellbeing and connectedness, ability to communicate and become active learners.
We recognise the home as the prime influence in the education of the child, committed to strengthening positive partnerships that foster in students an enthusiasm for learning and the development of skills necessary to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals and active and informed citizens.
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.
