2018 Year 11 Sharon Jeloscek Award (Issue 10 2018)
Written on the 2 August 2018
For 32 years at Sacred Heart College Senior, Sharon Jeloscek was a long-serving member of our Marist community in her roles as: Head of Learning Area - English, Head of House, Director of Curriculum, Deputy Principal and Acting Principal. Following the passing of Sharon in 2017, her son Lee Jeloscek has created an annual award in her name. This Award, will be presented at the Year 10/11 Graduation Assembly on Wednesday 14 November.
The Award is presented to a Year 11 student (about to enter Year 12) nominated by staff from Sacred Heart College. The student receiving this award will be a determined and passionate individual. This student may not be the highest achiever but is someone who demonstrates commitment to hard work and projects an understanding of their value as a unique individual.
Staff will nominate students, followed by a short-listing of applicants. These students will then submit an application folio. The application folio will be sent to Lee Jeloscek who will determine the winner of the Year 11 Sharon Jeloscek Award for 2018. The winner of the award will receive a significant bursary from Lee Jeloscek which will go towards the student's school fees.
Staff and students will be provided with information over the course of the semester as to more pertinent details outlining the process and timelines for the various stages of the Award, which will culminate in the presentation to the winner at the end of this academic year. We look forward to celebrating the legacy of Sharon Jeloscek's life through the launch of this inaugural award.
