Education in Faith


As a Catholic School, Sacred Heart exists in the Parish of Sacred Heart Kew to provide a learning environment within the Catholic context, incorporating Christian values and beliefs.


Our Religious Education program at Sacred Heart School encompasses inter-related aspects of Spirituality, formal Religious Education lessons, Liturgy and Prayer, preparation for and celebration of the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation, along with a strong emphasis on Social Justice.  Our students also participate in Class Liturgies and Masses, as well as celebrating whole School Masses throughout the year.    


“The Catholic School is a sacred landscape where faith, culture and life are in dialogue and where learners are empowered to shape and enrich their world with meaning, purpose and hope derived from their encounter with life and the teachings of Jesus. In this context, approaches to curriculum and pedagogy which are deeply rooted in faith, must empower students with the essential knowledge, skills and capacities for active citizenship and lifelong learning.”
