Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Thamarrurr Catholic College - Wadeye, Port Keats
Pre-School to Year 12 Co-educational
Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Thamarrurr Catholic School is situated at Wadeye (Port Keats) in the Thamarrurr Region of the Northern Territory, 400 km south west of Darwin. OLSH Thamarrurr Catholic School began in 1935 as part of a Catholic mission in Port Keats, under the guidance of the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. In 2007 the school was officially designated as a Catholic mainstream school, a step that was supported by the community.
The school has grown substantially over the last decade and this has seen the development of a secondary campus, new library and science block and a refurbishment of the trade training centre and kitchen. The school caters for students from Preschool to Year 12 including a homelands classroom at Kuy.
