From the Acting Principal (Issue 12 2018)
Written on the 30 August 2018
Dear members of the Sacred Heart College community
At the same time, given the Research Project is a compulsory component of the SACE and given nearly 700 students have achieved the SACE at Sacred Heart in 2016 and 2017 (that's 100% SACE completion both years), there has not been one grade in the D (or E) band during this time, for the Research Project.
The Research Project is a critical component of the SACE, not just because of its compulsory status and we look forward, as a College, to continuing to assist our students to achieve the very best they can, in every subject they are enrolled in.
Our vote of thanks must also go to Rachel Aldrich as Head of Learning Area (Cross Disciplinary Studies) and the team of outstanding and committed educators tasked with bringing to life this compulsory and at times, challenging subject. Together with the commitment of our students and the support of families, these outstanding results are possible.
Finally, a message to our Year 12 students and their families: at the time of publication, there are just 30 school days remaining in the 2018 school year! Whilst these results for the Research Project are outstanding, we must not rest now. Now is the time to make that extra sacrifice, commit more fully and leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of individual and collective excellence! Let's regret none of our choices in the final 30 days of classes for 2018!
