From the Deputy Principal (Friday 4 June)

To our Sacred Heart Community

Reconciliation Week

This week we acknowledge and celebrate National Reconciliation Week. Reconciliation Australia’s theme for 2021, More than a word. Reconciliation takes action, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action. We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation and we are reminded that reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians is something we should work towards 365 days a year

Students on each campus gathered in campus and house assemblies to pause and reflect on the importance of reconciliation and the call to action that we have within our own Hearts Community. At our Marcellin Assembly and in support of our wider community, our Year 12 Leaders responded to the call to action and launched a campus initiative to support Aboriginal women fleeing family violence situations.  

Our Hearts Aboriginal Program students shared their thoughts on what reconciliation in action looks like to them. We are exceptionally proud of the young people we have in our community and we applaud them for the amazing video to share their voice. Take a look here!

Many Hearts. Sacred Heart.

Sacred Heart College Learner Characteristics

Launched in 2020, the Sacred Heart College Learner Characteristics continue to be unpacked and developed across the College.  Learners and families are encouraged to consider the different characteristics and how they can be used to support the learning process.  

Learning should be a struggle and when we are in “the pit” of learning something new or struggling through a new challenge, the characteristics and dispositions we display are what we use to get us through.  

For a reminder of what the Learner Characteristics are and why they are important to learners at the College, take a look at our video launched earlier this year.

Women’s Leadership Summit

Today, Sacred Heart College hosted a group of female leaders from across Catholic Education South Australia to participate collectively in the Australian Schools Women’s Leadership Summit. It was an honour to host such an event at the College and to have the opportunity to support and connect with female leaders across our system. 

All leadership is important and supporting leaders in their development, be it student leaders, teacher leaders, middle leaders and senior leaders is an important part of what we do at Sacred Heart.
