Sacred Heart Catholic School

Goomalling

Principal's Welcome

On behalf of the staff at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Goomalling, I would like to welcome you to our school.

Sacred Heart Catholic School in Goomalling has been offering a quality Catholic education to the children of Goomalling and its surrounds for approximately 110 years. The school was started by the Presentation Sisters from Ireland who journeyed to Perth in the hope of starting schools to educate children in rural and remote areas.

The Presentation Sisters foundress, Nano Nagle built her life on helping those in need through education, often carrying a lantern with her on her journey to light the way at night. Today, at Sacred Heart Catholic School Goomalling, we use the lantern as a symbol of hope, and to live our school motto of ‘Witness The Truth’ in our community. We draw on the inspiration of Nano Nagle in providing for the children and families in our care.

Sacred Heart Catholic School has a proud tradition of being an active part of the Goomalling community. We have a close relationship with our parish. Being part of Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA), we promote a strong partnership with St Joseph’s School in Northam, where many of our children continue their educational journey once they graduate from Year Six. Our school is located across the road from Goomalling Gumnuts Child Care Centre making accessibility to the centre easy.

Our school offers classes from Pre-Kindergarten to Year Six. We currently run four classrooms across the school. Having smaller class sizes means our children are offered a high level of pastoral care and individual attention. Our classes include:

  • Little Possums Early Learning Centre (Pre Kindy, Four Year Old Kindy & Pre Primary)
  • Year 1/2
  • Year 3/4
  • Year 5/6

We also offer specialist classes in Indonesian, Music, Physical Education, Science and Visual Arts. The school has excellent facilities including a school library, art room, music room, science lab, playgrounds, including a nature play and enclosed early years playground for the Little Possums, school oval, basketball courts and, offers drop off and collection for children living outside of town through bus services. Our children each have access to an iPad to complement their learning and we communicate to parents through the SeeSaw app on a regular basis in regard to the growth of their child.
