From the Principal (Issue 10 2017)
Written on the 6 July 2017
Dear members of the Sacred Heart College community,
Sharon Jeloscek RIP
Sharon will be remembered for her commitment to the broader Marist ideals of Sacred Heart and her generous service in various capacities, including Deputy Principal (2004 - 2013). The numerous tributes received from her former students on the College Facebook page speak for themselves!
The College extends its heartfelt sympathy to Sharon's family - Lee, Sal, Louis and Serge - and gives thanks to God for the privilege of sharing a significant part of her life.
May she rest in the peace and love of God.
Professional Learning Week (Week 1, Term 3) 2017
As the amalgamation continues to unfold, the opportunity to work together on professional learning initiatives is integral to further improving the quality and nature of the education at the College - both in the current context and into the future. By removing 'one-off' days at the commencement of each term and concluding school at the end of the final day of term, except for Easter, we have been able to create these important days. It also provides a settled environment for our Year 12 students to undertake their 'Trial' Examinations. Such arrangements are not uncommon in Boarding Schools. We look forward to making the most of this valuable time!
Amalgamation 'Green Paper'
Included with the paper is a link to the Edge Architects Concept 3D 'Fly-by', something which has really excited the staff and students across the Colleges. The consultations will continue into next term with a view to developing a 'White Paper' which will firm up the proposals for final consultation. Exciting times indeed!
Many thanks to all for their efforts during the first half of 2017!
