Community News & Events
I am very pleased to announce today that, with the support of the Sacred Heart P&F, over the coming weeks students from Sacred Heart will be working with local singer/songwriter Josh Arnold to create a song to celebrate our wonderful school. You can see some of Josh’s work with other schools below. This is an exciting project for us and we will keep you up to date with Josh’s work. https://www.youtube.com/user/SmallTownCulture
This is certainly the week for exciting news as I also announce that Sacred Heart will be visited by Bruce and Denise Morcombe on Tuesday 24th October. The Morcombes will be giving a 50 minute presentation to the students on child safety. Thank you very much to Miss Campbell, one of our Student Protection Contacts, for organising this very special visit.
EALD MORNING TEA
Last Wednesday, a morning tea was held at school for the families of students with English as an additional language or dialect. It was a wonderful morning where Mrs Logan and Mrs Rillie shared with the parents how their children are supported at school. The families also shared many stories with each other. We would like to thank everyone who came along and shared with us morning tea and some wonderful conversations. If you were unable to attend this term, we look forward to more families joining us when we meet again later in the year.
STATE OF ORIGIN FREE DRESS DAY
The first State of Origin will be held on Wednesday 31 May. Students may wear origin colours to school and donate a gold coin which will be added to the school’s mission appeal. Please note students are not permitted to wear shoe string/ sleeveless tops or singlets and no thongs or sandals. We appreciate your assistance in this matter and thank you for your support.
