Welcome to Sacred Heart Parish School

​On behalf of our school community, I welcome you to the website of Sacred Heart School, Booval.

At Sacred Heart, we believe that we are called to Teach, Challenge and Transform for the benefit of our whole Catholic Community. We educate for a transformed world in communion, by nurturing the gifts and potential of each person, enacting shared leadership, and exercising a preferential option for the poor and marginalised.

As a Catholic Christian community, we educate all to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ as successful, creative and confident, active and informed learners who are empowered to shape and enrich our world.​​

My vision is that Sacred Heart continues to be a collaborative, nurturing and professional learning community that is inclusive of all. I believe that every student should be given the opportunity to achieve excellent progress every year.

The Sacred Heart Community is vibrant and positive, with an active and supportive parent body. Positive partnerships are integral to our success.

Previous to my position at Sacred Heart Parish School, I was the Foundation Principal at St Clare's Primary School, Yarrabilba, and Principal at St Joachim's Catholic School, Holland Park. I have held Assistant Principal roles and education consultancy roles within Brisbane Catholic Education. Sacred Heart is the sixth Catholic school in which I have worked, and I have taught all yea​r levels from Prep - Year 7. I have also held an executive officer role at the Queensland Catholic Education Commission (QCEC) where I worked with education leaders across Queensland.

I encourage you to take some time to explore our site, and I invite you to contact me if you have any further enquiries.

Peace and Blessings,

Chris Thomas - Principal
