Community News & Events
Last Wednesday our school held its pre-prep day for all our 2015 prep students. Our prospective preppies were very excited to come to school and they had a great morning getting to know each other and our school Thank you very much to all the staff who helped make the day such a successful introduction to Sacred Heart.
Whilst our pre-preps were getting to know each other, our upper primary children were competing in our school Speech Competition. Public speaking is not an easy thing and I congratulate all the competitors on the willingness to participate. Well done to our place getters: Junior - 1st Zèlia, 2nd Henry and 3rd Adam. Senior - 1st Grace, 2nd Isabella and 3rd Chloe.
Swimming has been extremely popular this week with the hot weather. Students have been assessed and put into their groups for the week. From this we will be able to allocate them into appropriate events in our swimming carnival on November 27 at Glennie Pool.
In Friday volleyball last week only three teams participated, all in Senior A. Two of those teams earned good wins while the third had a hard fought draw with Grammar. Most players can now get some serves in and many are using digs and sets well. We will be learning how to spike a ball this week but won't be able to practise it until the following week due to swimming lessons this Friday.
Minnie Vinnies Christmas Appeal- In our first week of filling the stocking for this appeal we raised $73.65 which is a fantastic effort. It is amazing how all those little coins add up. So keep filling those stockings!!
Family Breakfast – Friday 31st October - Each year we celebrate our wonderful families at Sacred Heart by having a breakfast at 7.30am and a Family Mass at 8.45am.
