Sacred Heart take STEM program to new heights

12 April 2023

A Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) exhibition, organised by Sacred Heart Primary School last August, has earned the school a two-year, $16 000 sponsorship with manufacturing company,Bradken.

‘As a leading STEM School within the Catholic Education system of Western Australia, this sponsorship will fund the school’s delivery of Professional Learning in regional and metropolitan school settings and support the ongoing delivery of Sacred Heart Primary School’s extensive school-based STEM program for our students,’ Sacred Heart Principal Tanya McGuire said.

Assistant Principal Carolyn Perlini said the STEM programs are designed to equip students with the skills of collaboration, communication, critical thinking, problem-solving and creativity.

‘We believe these skills not only provide a framework for successful learning in the school setting, but also prepare our students to thrive in a world where change is constant and learning never stops.

‘…we plan to facilitate face-to-face and virtual webinars and bring our knowledge and skills to remote schools by providing professional learning opportunities in relation to the STEM Design Process.’

‘Having grown our capabilities in STEM over the past few years, we would like to use our skills to provide support to other educators both locally and regionally.

‘The confidence that we have developed as STEM educators puts us in a good position to help other educators develop excellence in this area. We hope to achieve this by mentoring educators in surrounding schools and by encouraging other schools to visit Sacred Heart to learn more about our STEM program and facilities. In addition, we plan to facilitate face-to-face and virtual webinars and bring our knowledge and skills to remote schools by providing professional learning opportunities in relation to the STEM Design Process.’
