Education at Immaculate Heart School is viewed as a shared responsibility between students, staff, parents and the wider parish community. The partnership between these stakeholders in the education and development of a child is a significant consideration. When all share a common vision and work together towards its realisation, there is a greater likelihood of success. Parents are the first teachers of their children and it is in the home that children initially learn to live a faith life. At school, children learn the rich tradition about and celebrate our Catholic faith and through the parish, children are able to celebrate this faith commitment within the community setting. A parish is an “altar community” – a community of believers gathered around the Eucharist celebrated in its midst. In this Eucharist the parish members receive food and strength for their journey towards God while supporting and encouraging one another by their presence.
