Community News & Events
The final weeks of the school year are packed with action. Thursday 24th November is our swimming carnival (born 2008 and older). Next Monday evening (28th) is our Christmas Concert, Wednesday (30th) is our day of thanksgiving activities for Mrs Booth and on Thursday (1st) we will take some time to have some fun in our House groups. Apart from these activities, it is a particularly exciting time for our Year 6 students as they prepare to be formally farewelled from the school on the last day of term (Friday 2nd December).
The end of the year also sees the retirement of our APRE, Mrs Maria Booth. It is almost impossible for me to express how much Maria’s presence in our school will be missed. Maria is a highly skilled teacher and is passionate about doing everything possible to help the students she works with to achieve their potential. Her dedication and commitment to the liturgical life of the school has been second to none. If you have ever attended any liturgical celebrations, I am sure you will agree that Maria really knows how to bring the story of Jesus to life. Maria (and Jim!) have been very much part of the fabric of our school and their involvement in and commitment to every aspect of Sacred Heart will be sorely missed. I hope you can find some time next Wednesday to join us to acknowledge Maria’s contribution to the lives of so many Sacred Heart students over her thirty years at our school.
On Wednesday 30th November is report card day and I ask that you please keep an eye out for the envelope sent home with your child. This envelope will also contain important information for 2017 including a booklist and class placement information for 2017.
I take this final opportunity to thank everyone for their support of the school over the year. A special thank you to all our volunteers, P&F supporters and School Board members who give so generously of their time for the benefit of the children. We have many families whose time at Sacred Heart comes to an end as the school year concludes: thank you for being part of the Sacred Heart family and all the best for the future! Thank you finally to all of the staff of the school who help make our school a great place to learn and play.
The final days of the school year are exciting and busy and I hope you and your family have an enjoyable end to the school year. If I do not see you at one of our end of year events, I wish you and your family a safe and happy Christmas.
Mr Chris Rosentreter
We will celebrate the end of our school year with a concert titled ‘Let the Christmas Spirit In” on Monday 28 November. The night will commence at 5:30pm with a BBQ and Christmas Concert commencing at 7pm. We ask students meet their class teacher at their classroom at 6:30pm not 5:30pm as advised in the letter sent home on 18 November.

We are now taking Prep enrolments for 2017. If you know of anyone wishing to enrol in Prep for 2017, an application pack can be collected from the office. If you are an existing family, an enrolment application form will still need to be completed and returned to the office. Prep interviews for existing families are currently being held.
