Principal’s Message

Welcome to Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary School Clifton Gardens. At Blessed Sacrament, we strive to promote excellence in education and develop a life long love of learning. We do this by providing high-quality teaching and offering our students supportive and challenging opportunities that enrich their learning. 

All of our teachers have been trained in Gifted Education and we are a Newman Selective Gifted Education Program school. This is a program within the Catholic school system to cater for the particular learning, social and emotional needs of gifted students. In addition, we offer specialist programs for gifted and talented children as well as programs to support children with other special needs.

We understand the importance of enabling children to experience success and grow in confidence and independence. Our students enjoy a strong sense of warmth and belonging in our school. It’s a nurturing environment in which every child is well-known and supported. We respect the dignity and value of each of our students and their families and we are committed to building an effective working partnership between home and school. We are all a part of the Blessed Sacrament community and work together, for the benefit of the children.

To this end, our school offers a very comfortable and beautiful physical environment for the children. We aim to maintain a high-quality Catholic education that is relevant to the challenges of our times and provide a future filled with hope for our children. 

We warmly invite you to contact us, if you would like to inquire further.

Our Historystudents sitting down doing school work

Blessed Sacrament was established in 1950 when the Lochinvar Sisters of St Joseph accepted the invitation of the parish priest, Fr Pierse, to staff the school. Fr Pierse had purchased a large old home in Queen Street to serve as a convent. The school opened with a room inside the convent and grew by one additional class each year.

The school quickly became the focal point of the parish, with the parents very active in its support. The dedicated teaching of the Sisters continued and the school remained under their direction up until 1983 when Mrs Kathy Campbell became the first lay principal with a mainly lay staff.

In 1991, the convent building was refurbished to include classrooms, library and offices and was dedicated to the then parish priest, Fr Phibbs. In 1995, a more extensive redevelopment of the grounds helped to maximise space. Refurbishment of the school has continued to ensure the provision of a 21st century contemporary education for all children in our community.
