​​​The Immaculate Heart of Mary​

Immaculate Heart Catholic Primary School looks to Mary, the mother of Jesus and her ‘Immaculate Heart’ as an example and inspiration. Mary's heart is immaculate, perfect in all virtue, and she is closer to her Son's heart more than anyone else. Through our devotion to the ‘Immaculate Heart’ of Mary, we aspire to unite our community to God through Mary’s heart as she intercedes for us with her Son in all our needs.

The Immaculate Heart is the expressive symbol and the living reminder of Mary's interior life; her joys and sorrows, her virtues and hidden perfections, and, above all, her love for her God, her maternal love fro her Divine Son, and her motherly and compassionate love for her children.

At Immaculate Heart Catholic Primary School, we recognise Mary’s example and support each other through joys and sorrows. We strive for perfection but realise none of us are perfect. Just as Mary demonstrated a compassionate love for her children, we model this example through compassion and love for our school community. The culmination of this journey will see us foster a love of Mary, realising that true devotion to the Immaculate Heart, always leads us to Jesus.

Our Motto, ‘Learning with Heart’

In realising our devotion to the ‘Immaculate Heart’, we are committed to putting the ‘Heart’ into all learning experiences where the teachings of Jesus are lived in everything we do. As we journey together, we strive to be God’s heart here on Earth by nurturing compassionate students in a Christ-centred environment with courage, passion and creativity to take action in their community. We promote excellence in teaching and learning and strive to put our heart into everything we do, encouraging our community to be the best they can be, thereby, empowering our learners to reach their full potential both now and into the future. ​

Our Logo 

The background portraying the image of environmental landscape represents our place in God’s creation. We are called to be stewards for​cr​eation and to respect the land on which we live, work, and pray.

The human figures represent our people; both as individuals and together as community. Together, we strive respect ourselves and to respect the others with whom work.

The image of the heart represents Mary’s Immaculate Heart and symbolises her undying love for all people. Her love is such that she cannot contain it within, hence it is the prominent feature of our logo and visible for all to see. This demonstrates that we are Guided by Mary and following in the footsteps of Jesus. As a community, we provide a nurturing, inclusive, quality educational environment where we strive to make Jesus real in every way, every day. ​
