Christmas Hamper Appeal
We had another successful Christmas Hamper Appeal this year. All homerooms donated $10 a student or donated goods to the value of $10, to create a hamper full of Christmas food/gifts for less fortunate families in five St Vincent de Paul conferences - St Marys, Seacombe Gardens, Brighton, Glenelg and Morphett Vale. St Vincent de Paul sends a big 'thank  you' to all families who donated, as this helps immensely at this time of the year.

Farewell and Thank You
As we come to the end of another year, I take this opportunity to thank all students, families and staff for the contributions you have made to the Middle School of Sacred Heart College in 2018. To the parents and friends of the College who have supported the work of students and staff, and to those who have generously given their time in volunteering, I say a huge thank you!

I acknowledge each learner for the contributions they have made to the College this year. A tremendous amount of learning, along with an enormous range of activities beyond the classroom, have taken place this year and I congratulate you all on your efforts in building the community and family spirit.

We have many staff who are leaving us at the end of the year to head to new and exciting experiences. I thank each and every one of them for the contributions they've made to the lives of the students and the Ccollege during their time at Sacred Heart. On behalf of the wider school community, I congratulate the following staff on their recent appointments and wish them every blessing as they begin a new chapter in the educational careers.

  • Ashleigh Bryans - Director of Learning Pathways, Thomas More College
  • Kate Fallon - Year 7 Wellbeing Leader, Mary MacKillop College
  • Tom Jordan - Year 7-12 Teacher, St Paul's College
  • Krystle Payten - Year 7-12 Teacher, Immanuel College
  • Tina Robins - Year 7-12 Teacher, Thomas More College
  • Tamara Smith - Assistant Principal Religious Identity and Mission (APRIM), All Saints School
  • Emily Upton - Year 7-12 Teacher, St Dominic's Priory College

I also wish the following staff all the very best as they continue their teaching careers in 2019: Lucy Pickering, Cameron Hext, Justine DeCorso, Madeleine Hayes, Heath Varts, Emmalee Leaning and Vicki Hogg. We thank and farewell Jane Common and Maureen Watts who have been sharing the role of Receptionist in 2018.

I would like to conclude by thanking the learners, staff and wider community of Sacred Heart College Middle School for the understanding and support they've shown through a year of significant change! The campus has undergone significant building works this year and the flexibility, resilience and cooperation shown by both staff and students has been outstanding. All year we've talked about 'short term pain for long term gain' and I look forward to sharing the long term gain of the new Champagnat Campus with you all in 2019.

Wishing you all a safe and happy Christmas and pray that you will have time to connect with family, friends and the important people in your lives this Christmas.

Assistant to the Principal - Champagnat Project
