WEST ZONE ATHLETICS CARNIVAL
I had the pleasure of attending the West Zone Athletics Carnival on Monday. Despite the cool, windy conditions it was a great day of athletic competition. I congratulate our young athletes on the effort they put into their events and for the way they represented our school, both on and off the track. Congratulations to Monica (shot put), Holly (multi
event - long jump, high jump, sprint and 800 m) and Hayden
(100m) for being selected to represent West Zone at
the Darling Downs Athletics Carnival. Other outstanding
performances included Jackson (3rd in shot put and 4th
in the multi event), Tyler (3rd in the 800m) and our 11
years old girls’ relay team (3rd place). Thank you very much
once again to Mr Toohey and Mrs Weber for managing our
BOOK WEEK: 22nd – 26th August
Next week is Book Week and we have a number of activities planned here at Sacred Heart. This year’s theme is ‘Australia! Story Country’. Our annual Book Week character parade will be held on Tuesday 23rd August at 8:30 am in the hall and I look forward to seeing the children come dressed as their favourite book character. The school’s Book Fair will be operating once again this year and will be open Monday to Thursday (8-8:30 am and 3-3:30pm) in the school library. As well as all of this, we will have a whole school story time after lunch on Tuesday. It will certainly be a big week!
