Educating Centralians since 1938


Childhood is a crucial time for growing healthy minds. All children need care and support to develop and learn. Some children need additional help to reach their potential. KidsMatter is a mental health and wellbeing framework for primary schools and early childhood education and care services, and is proven to make a positive difference to the lives of Australian children.


KidsMatter Primary provides proven methods, tools and support to help schools work with parents and carers, health services and the wider community, to nurture happy, balanced kids.


Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Catholic College is the first school in Central Australia and the second in the Northern Territory to have completed the full suite of program training. As such, OLSH is one of the first schools in Australia to be officially recognised for its commitment to improving children’s mental health and wellbeing.


Our school continues to prioritise student wellbeing as an essential ingredient to student learning and we know this certainly works best in partnership with our families.
