Last week the Sacred Heart Choir sang their heart out as part of the 2018 Eisteddfod in the Modern Choir and Gospel/Spiritual divisions on Thursday night and Sunday afternoon. I would like to commend our students on their patience and commitment to our choir and for attending extra rehearsals. The competition was strong, and we heard some very well-rehearsed groups perform. We also performed very well and received a glowing 94% for our song "This Is Me" from the Movie "The Greatest Showman". This high achievement placed us third and we were awarded a cash prize as part of the James Cronin Encouragement Award. A fantastic achievement indeed!
Whilst we did not receive a place in the Gospel/Spiritual section with our song "Ancient Words" we received wonderful comments from the adjudicator. Overall, we did our best and we are very happy with our results. Thank you to all parents for your patience and support at these events. Special thank you also to our lovely accompanist Miss Emma Hoey, our Principal Mr. Rosentreter and our APRE Mrs. Rillie for their continued support in the Performing Arts.
We are currently looking forward to a number of events such as Sing Out and our in-house Sacred Heart Idol - finer details for these events to come, so stay tuned!
SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT SURVEY
This year our school will be participating in a School Review and Improvement Survey managed by Research Australia Development and Innovation Institute (RADII). As well as school staff and students from Years 5 - 12, all parents are invited to participate in the survey. The survey provides valuable feedback for the future directions of our school. It would be appreciated if parents could update their contact details prior to the 24 June 2018. This will ensure delivery to the correct parent email addresses are available. On Monday, 23 July 2018, RADII will send all parents a personalized invitation to complete the survey online. If both parents' email addresses are on file at the school, the invitation will be sent to both parents. However, the survey will close once the first person has completed it. If you do not wish to complete the survey, simply delete it. The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. You can complete the survey from anywhere you have access to the internet. The survey will close on Sunday, 12 August 2018 for parents. We encourage you to be very honest in your responses to the surveys. All responses go directly to RADII so they are confidential and anonymous. When the surveys are completed, and responses aggregated by RADII, overall data is sent to us so that we can then share the findings with you.
A school disco for all Sacred Heart students will be held on Thursday 21 June in the school hall from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. The cost is $5 per child or $8 for a family (2 or more children). A canteen will be operating for snack and drink purchases. We look forward to seeing you there!
The next P & F Meeting will be held on Monday, 25 June at 7pm in the staff room. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Our major whole school event this term is our Athletics Carnival (Tuesday 19th June). This is always a great day and highly anticipated by the students. The children will be busy preparing for our carnival over the course of the term and we hope you may be able to come along and join us on the day to cheer the children on.
