From the Principal and Head of Marymount (Issue 7 2017)
Written on the 25 May 2017
Dear members of the Sacred Heart College community,
Year 6 & 7 meetings at SHC Middle
One of the motivations behind these meetings has been the positive feedback in recent years from Marymount families regarding the Year 9 into Year 10 meetings at Sacred Heart Senior that commenced in 2015. These meetings initiate the transition process by way of conversation and familiarisation. Sacred Heart is a large College and has utilised these meetings to 'welcome' families from Marymount and to 'touch base' about the learning needs and dreams of each student entering the Senior School.
As enrolment from Marymount to SHC will automatically transfer at the end of 2017, these meetings are not compulsory and are not formal enrolment interviews. We remind families that it is not a requirement to attend a meeting, but an invitation to connect should you have questions or queries. These conversations will also assist the preparation for the Parent Forum detailed adjacent.
Enrolment Interviews for learners, both male and female, commencing at Sacred Heart in 2019 will also be occurring on the 14th June. Leaders from both Marymount and Sacred Heart Middle will be involved in the various interviews being conducted this is one of the many ways our colleges are "coming together" as we head towards amalgamation.
Parent Forum - Tuesday 6 June
Joint College Board/Council and Leadership Meetings
In the meantime, our focus continues to be the girls' holistic, Catholic education both on a daily basis and with an eye on the future.
