On behalf of our beautiful school family, I warmly welcome you to Sacred Heart School. For our new families, I hope this is the beginning of a long and lasting association with The Heart School, 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 share our hopes and achievements, our support strategies, and offer insight into what it’s like to live, work, pray, and learn in the beautiful Zenedth Kes (Torres Straits). We have included information for those considering a move to Waiben (Thursday Island) as well as career opportunities in our school.
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 student, staff and family member in our Sacred Heart School community is called upon to follow the “Heart Way” by embracing our Spirituality of Love and living out our expectations of kindness, safety, respect and responsibility. Our school is known for its profound sense of welcome and joy, where we have created 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, striving for a world class education while acknowledging the challenges of living and working in one of the most remote locations in Australia.
We are a family, and my door is always open.
Wishing you God’s every blessing.
Mrs Majella Lynch-Harlow
Principal of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School
