Sacred Heart Primary is a Catholic coeducational school that was founded by and is educating in the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy. Sacred Heart Primary, Westmead, was established in 1956. In living out the values of Christ, our school celebrates the uniqueness of each person within a diverse community. This is reflected in the way our community is taught and encouraged to respect the dignity and uniqueness of each person.

We are committed to providing each student with a learning environment that is comprehensive, inclusive and challenging. Located in Westmead, we are a multicultural school which seeks to live out the values of Christ in a caring and supportive environment.


Our Mercy Heritage

Sacred Heart Primary is a primary Catholic school that has continued the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy since our first lay Principal in 1993. A Sacred Heart education is essentially aimed at developing a spirit of hospitality; celebrating our faith, multiculturalism and achievements; and valuing the dignity of each person.



Cooperative Learning

Students at Sacred Heart Primary are held accountable for their learning through being encouraged to use a wide range of cooperative learning strategies in their day-to-day learning. Through working together, making responsible decisions, solving real-world problems creatively, listening attentively, expressing appreciation and celebrating achievement, Sacred Heart students are challenged to become the best learners they can be. We believe the use of cooperative learning motivates students to become lifelong learners.
