END OF YEAR EVENTS
Although there is only a week and a half left in the school year, we have a lot of exciting things happening before we head off on holidays. Thursday 26th November is our Swimming Carnival (children born 2007 and older) and the hot weather will make it a great day to be in the pool. I wish all our swimmers the very best of luck! Monday night (30th) is our highly anticipated Christmas Concert which commences at 5:30 pm. The theme for this year is ‘Rock Around the Christmas Tree’ and I’m really looking forward to seeing what Mrs Rosier has in store for us. The student performances will begin at 7:00 pm and the evening will conclude at 8:00 pm.
On Wednesday (2nd) we will be having a Fun Day to celebrate the year’s end. Over the year the students have earned points for their House and this Friday at assembly I will announce the winning House for 2015. On the Fun Day, this House will go to Milne Bay Aquatic Centre for a swim and our other two Houses will have water play and activities at school. A note with more details of this event will go home on Friday. Wednesday (2nd) is also 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 2016 including a booklist and class placement information.
The last day of school is our grand finale to the year as we formally farewell our Graduating Class. Graduation will commence with Mass in our Hall at 9:00 am, followed by morning tea and the Graduation and Awards Ceremony will commence at 11:00 am. This is always a very special time in the life of our Graduates and we would love to see you there to share the moment with them.
I am pleased to announce two exciting things happening at Sacred Heart in 2016. Firstly, all our occupied classrooms will have air conditioning installed over the Christmas holidays. This project is being generously supported by our P&F and will guarantee a ‘cool’ start to the year for all our students. Secondly, our Year 1 students will be piloting a 1-to-1 iPad program in 2016. This ambitious program will see the introduction of iPads for each student in Year 1 to provide our students with the very best access to technology to support their learning at Sacred Heart. The ultimate goal of our iPad plan is to see every student in the school participating in 2017. Stay tuned for more information in the New Year!
