At Sacred Heart, prayer is an integral part of school life. Prayer empowers us to serve God through showing care and compassion to others.

Children are taught traditional Catholic prayers throughout their time at school including the Sign of the Cross, Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and Eternal Rest.

Each class says prayers in the morning, grace at lunch and prayers at the end of the day. Children also keep a prayer journal and have regular opportunities to express themselves through prayer. 

Any member of our school community can submit prayer requests to be prayed in class / assemblies and included on our school newsletter. 

We have a prayer space in our school grounds - the Shalom Room and Garden. This space is used for prayer, quiet reflection and worship. 

Families are encouraged to participate in prayer through the sending home and sharing of Advent and Lent bags.
