Sacred Heart has a vast community which includes children, parents, carers, staff, parishioners, other schools within Torbay and people from different parts of the world. We enjoy welcoming new families to our school and watching them become an important part of our ‘family’.
Much of the community links we establish happen through the church and the work we do together with parishioners. We also ensure that children have regular opportunities to worship at Mass in order for them think about the messages of the Gospel and reflect upon their own lives and what they are thankful for. Parents, carers and other members of the family are invited along to these events to watch children share readings and also join in with our singing. The dates will be included within our weekly Friday Flyer, which is handed out on a Friday afternoon.
We are always working on extending our community by engaging the children in activities such as Shelter Box, The Shoe Box appeal and Traidcraft. These help us to lend our support to people who are less fortunate than us around the world and continue our school ethos of ‘Everyone is Sacred’. The children thoroughly enjoy opportunities to help others and it really does add to our sense of community.
