Our School

Welcome to Sacred Heart Central School. Choosing a school for your child is a very important decision. We are wholeheartedly committed to educating your child and providing them with an educational experience where they feel valued and they belong. Sacred Heart is a place where everyone in the community is encouraged to learn, to grow and to work towards their best selves.

Sacred Heart is a dynamic school that is proud of its history and tradition of providing a quality, contemporary Catholic education to generations of families. We are a fantastic school that welcomes children from Cootamundra and surrounding areas from Kindergarten to Year 10 tailoring learning to meet the needs of individual students. At Sacred Heart, we recognise that each child is unique and understand the importance of every child and family feeling welcome in our learning community.

Our school motto 'Faith and Knowledge' challenges us to be a community that serves others, provides academic excellence, and nurtures relationships. We adhere to a vision of Learn, Lead, and Live as a way of life for our entire community. The school caters for students in Kindergarten – Year 10 and has a current enrolment of 358 students.

Our professional and dedicated staff provide a contemporary teaching and learning approach to education with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy and a commitment to social justice and personal excellence. The school is well-resourced and committed to the integration of technology into the curriculum. School achievements are celebrated in the areas of sports, the arts, public speaking and academic fields.

It is our aim at Sacred Heart (in conjunction with Leaders, Staff, Parents and Community, and Students) to develop a culture and climate of success that will best allow learning to flourish.
