Community News & Events
Our athletes endured some arctic conditions at last Friday’s Catholic Schools’ Athletics Carnival. Even though the wind nearly blew us away, Sacred Heart students were great ambassadors for our school. Thank you very much to Mrs Norman for her organisation of the event and thanks also to Mr Toohey, Mrs Weber and Ms McNeil who helped out on the day. I also extend a very special thank you to the many parent supporters who helped cheer on our athletes. Our athletic team is now preparing for the West Zone Athletics Carnival on Monday 11th August. I am sure we will get better weather for this carnival!
THINK PINK DAY
This Thursday is Think Pink Day here at Sacred Heart as we raise money for the Kim Walters Choices Program. This organisation supports cancer sufferers and their families and we can show our support by wearing pink to school on Thursday and making a gold coin donation.
PREP ENROLMENTS 2015
We are now taking Prep enrolments for 2015. If you have a child or know someone who is of Prep age, please call into the office for an enrolment pack. We are currently holding interviews. Don’t miss out!
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
28th July to 1st August
Next week our school, along with all Catholic schools across the state, celebrate Catholic Education Week and our school has a lot to be thankful for! The end of the week will be a busy one as the children in Years 5-7 will attend the Catholic Schools’ Netball and Touch Carnival on Thursday 31st. Friday 1st August is a pupil free day as all the staff of Catholic schools in the Toowoomba region gather for the Bishop’s Inservice Day. It promises to be a very busy week.
We begin our celebrations for Catholic Education Week this Friday with a Eucharistic Liturgy, led by Years 3/4O and 4/5L at 8.45am. Throughout this Mass we will reflect on the Gospel call, ‘Come, live life in all its fullness”.
Catholic schools strive to provide learning experiences through which every young person has the opportunity to reach their full human potential - spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, culturally and physically - and know what it means to engage in all that life has to offer.
Act of Kindness – During CEW each year we make an effort to do something special for those less fortunate than us. In conjunction with the Sacred Heart Minnie Vinnies we are going to launch an appeal for blankets to donate to St Vincent de Paul. Please drop all donations to the office. By participating in an act of kindness simultaneously, schools across the State can also highlight to the wider community the justice values that Catholic schools strive to live out. The activity serves as a tangible link uniting our Catholic education communities and helps each student to know they are part of a ‘bigger picture’. Together, we have the ability to bring about a real difference in the lives of others.
