Tomorrow our 2015 prep students will be coming to school for our Pre-Prep Day. Our preps-to-be will be at school from 9am to 12pm to find out what school life is all about.
Whilst our pre-preps are getting acquainted with the school, our upper primary students will be participating in the Sacred Heart Speech Competition. The speeches will commence at 9am in the hall and parents are most welcome to come along and join us. It will undoubtedly be a very exciting day at Sacred Heart tomorrow!
Next week promises to be an exciting week as well. Aside from our swimming block, we have the Readers' Cup on Thursday and on Friday we have our Red Day for Daniel, as well as celebrating World Teachers' Day and holding our annual family breakfast and Mass.
Well done to Preston on a great effort at State titles last week. On Friday Sacred Heart volleyball teams had some great games at inter-school sport. It was pleasing to see teams using the dig that they practised on Thursday. Serves have also become much more consistent. Well done to all!
Minnie Vinnies Christmas Appeal- This week we begin our annual Christmas collection for St Vincent de Paul. In past years we have donated food items to this appeal but this year St Vincent de Paul have requested monetary donations. Each class has a Christmas Stocking in their classroom which they will cover with coins as often as they can. They will bring their stockings to assembly each Friday and we will keep you informed as to how our appeal is advancing.
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. This year after Mass there will be games on the oval for families as well. Please return the form attached to this newsletter if your family will be attending the breakfast or would like to participate in the Mass.
