Welcome to Sacred Heart Parish School Broken Hill

“A School with a Difference”

Sacred Heart Parish School is a co-educational school for students from Kindergarten to Year 6 in the Wilcannia-Forbes Diocese.

The School takes its direction from the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the seat of wisdom, discernment, and knowledge.

While Sacred Heart is staffed by lay teachers, the spirit of both the Mercy sisters and Marist Brothers continues. Their mission and rich heritage of education, prayer and work and their emphasis on the provision of Catholic education is central to and reflected in the school’s curriculum and community life.

Sacred Heart Parish Primary School is a caring environment where each person is valued and experiences a sense of belonging, where faith in God is nurtured and a well-balanced curriculum is provided. Prayer and Liturgical celebrations are an integral part of school life.

Our Motto is “Faith, Truth, and Love”
