NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION AGAINST BULLYING
The National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence is fast approaching (16th March). Recent tragedies such as the suicide of Dolly Everett highlight to me the importance of continuing to make anti-bullying education a major part of the curriculum at Sacred Heart. The digital age we live in makes on-line bullying a growing threat to the well-being of our children and we will be working with the children in this area over the year. Make sure to check out the ‘Bullying No Way!’ website for more information
40 FOR 40 PROJECT
During Lent, each class is participating in the 40 for 40 project. This project requires that each class commits to raising $40 in the 40 days of lent. We have 9 classes in total so this would give us a total of $360 to donate to Project Compassion. On the final day of term, we will have a coin trail to put our coins on to see how much money we can raise for this very worthwhile cause. Keep an eye out for information from your own child’s class, to see how they are going to reach their $40 goal.
COLES SPORTS FOR SCHOOLS
Coles Sports for Schools program is back for 2018. This program gives schools across Australia the opportunity to earn sports gear just by collecting vouchers from Coles. Simply spend $10 at Coles and you will receive one Sports for Schools voucher. Place your vouchers in the box provided in the Students’ Entrance here at school or in the Sacred Heart box at Coles Wilsonton. The more vouchers we earn the more equipment we will receive!! This program continues until 11 May. Thank you for your support!
CARITAS JUST LEADERSHIP DAY
Last Thursday, Sacred Heart hosted the Caritas Just Leadership Day in our church hall. The day was coordinated by our local and state representative from Caritas. This was a day for children to reflect and acknowledge the needs of people around the world who are less fortunate than ourselves. There was also time in the day to discuss actions the students could do during Lent, to not only raise money for Project Compassion, but to raise awareness in our school community.
