From the Assistant to the Principal - Champagnat Project (Issue 5 2018)
Written on the 5 April 2018
The Middle School learners and staff came together on Holy Thursday and again after the Easter weekend, to reflect on the journey that Christ made in his final days and to celebrate the joy of the resurrection. As we reflect on the presence of Christ in our lives this Easter, it is an opportunity where we can also celebrate the joy of living our lives with others. As a College community, in a time of significant change, may we truly become "Easter People" who know and embrace the love of God for ourselves and for one another.
Term 1 CEA sports are coming to a close and I thank both the staff and our dedicated parents and supporters who have generously given their time throughout the term. As we look towards Term 2 and what will be another busy period of activities beyond the classroom, I encourage families to ensure that both students and supporters continue to represent the College in ways that demonstrate the family spirit of Sacred Heart.
Our Year 9 learners had an adventurous day out as part of the Rite Journey program in recent weeks. Learners were involved in Dragon Boating, Mega-Adventure and beach orienteering activities to give them experiences of team work, risk taking and group motivation. My thanks to the dedicated Year 9 Teaching Team for supporting learners and providing them with such an array of experiences.
As we head into the final week of Term 1 and I look back on the many things that have already occurred during the past 10 weeks, it has certainly been a term full of opportunities for learning, relationship building, team work and spirituality. Term 1 Progress Reports will be handed out prior to the school holidays and will provide a snapshot of achievements to date in all learning areas. In addition to reflecting on the Report, I encourage families to speak with their son/s about developing a personal learning goal for Term 2 and to consider ways he may work towards achieving that goal.
I wish all families every blessing in this Easter season.
