‘Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School is a community that is learning and living in the tradition of the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.’
Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School is located in Elmore, on the Northern Highway between Bendigo and Echuca. Elmore is situated in the City of Greater Bendigo and has a population of 776 (2016 census) on the Campaspe River.
Catholic Education originated in Elmore in 1902. The Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart took over the administration of the school during the 1920’s under the direction of Fr Ryan, the Parish Priest. Through strong tradition, the School and the Parish remain closely connected serving the community in education, worship and care for one another.
Catholic Education looks at the whole person. For children, education primarily occurs in the home. This is particularly true of the spiritual growth of your child. The full benefit of the Catholic school occurs when we enable the school, family and parish to work alongside each other to create a true environment for faith and personal development.
At Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School there is a focus on learning. Teachers are focussed on providing the most up-to-date teaching and learning strategies, using data and student information to inform their teaching practice. Curriculum is planned using the Victorian Curriculum, developed by the Education Department and mandated by Catholic Education Sandhurst. Religious Education and Faith Development at OLSH is considered a lifelong process and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School will support you and your family through this journey.
The staff of OLSH will work in partnership with you in nurturing your child's development. We will guide, support and assist your child in every possible way and take a genuine interest in your child's welfare. We recognise the important role of parents in the education of their children and we welcome your active involvement and participation in the life of the school.
Parents are considered an integral part in their child’s education and are invited and, at times, expected to join in various activities including joint social parish and school community activities, volunteering in fundraising, school services, liturgies, assemblies and formation evenings.
We thank you for the privilege of working with you and your child and for the trust you place in our school community. We look forward to sharing the excitement of your child's educational and life journey.
We encourage you to come for a visit and experience Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School in action. Feel free to phone the school or just call in!
