BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
Extracurricular opportunities for students to unlock their creative potential, develop a talent or pursue a passion.
WE HELP EVERY STUDENT SHINE!
At Sacred Heart, we believe it is important for students to pursue interests to find what they are passionate about. We give them exposure to a range of exciting opportunities to unlock their creative potential, develop a talent or follow a passion.
CREATIVE AND PERFORMING ARTS
We encourage our students to explore their passions and talents. We have a range of opportunities available for students to participate in creative and performing arts activities and programs such as music, drama and dance. Our students receive weekly music and visual arts lessons from our specialist Creative Arts teacher.
In addition to this, our primary students have the chance to learn an instrument through the Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese CAPTIVATE initiative. Many of these students take part in our school band.
Sport is a valued part of a school’s curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child by providing opportunities for social, physical, emotional and moral learning. Participation, enjoyment and skill development are the cornerstones of school sport. Representative pathways are also available through the Parramatta Diocesan Primary Schools Sports Council.
Our students are offered a wide variety of local community activities to help develop a sense of pride, respect and responsibility for themselves and others. Whole school outreach programs we are involved in regularly include Project Compassion and the Vinnie's Winter Appeal.
This positive participation and actions can be seen in how we interact and learn with one another, work collaboratively and take ownership of our behaviour as well as active involvement in faith-based experiences.
EXCURSIONS, CAMPS AND RETREATS
Every student loves to get out of the classroom and explore.
Our students benefit greatly from school trips where they are able to observe new things not available at school such as rare and exotic wildlife and plants, different cultures and the stories of our history. These experiences lead to deeper understanding of learning subjects.
Camps and retreats are also wonderful opportunities for students to develop independence, grow in faith, form strong friendships and make life-long memories!
