Community News

On Tuesday this week, our Year 4 to 6 swimming carnival was held at the Cooee Bay Pool. It was a great event and well done to all our children who participated so wholeheartedly on the day. The enthusiasm shown by our four houses during war cries was extremely pleasing and really ‘spurred on’ all competitors.

Congratulations to our winning house: Galilee and to our age champions:
10 years: Oliver Cugola and Neassa O’Reilly
11 years: Sam Hooper, Alex Eaton and Miah Shackleton
12 years: Hayden Anderson and Maggie Simmons

Many thanks to Mrs Lisa List for her coordination of the day, to all our teachers and to the many families who came along to support.

Best wishes to Maggie Simmons (6H) who will be competing at the Queensland School Swimming in Brisbane next week.


Sacred Heart School Cross country carnival will be on Tuesday, 27th March (Week 10). This annual event is a great carnival where all the students are invited to participate. Our school carnival also doubles as selection trials for our Sacred Heart Cross Country team (10, 11, 12 year olds).

Parents are most welcome to join us throughout the morning. Prep to Year 3 will run in their year levels (girls’ and boys’ races), while students in Years 4 to 6 will run in age groups. The following is a timetable for the day with approximate times our students will be running:

  • 8.50am Prep and boys and girls born 2006 (12 years)
  • 9.20am Year 1 and boys and girls born 2007 (11 years)
  • 9.50am Year 2 and boys and girls born 2008 (10 years)
  • 10.10am Year 3 and boys and girls who are 9 years old in Year 4.

Please remember: Bring hats and water bottle, apply sunscreen, wear coloured house shirt (optional), wear/bring comfortable runners.

We will have our last training session next Tuesday 20th March. The training session will start at 7.15am and go to 7.45am. Preps, Yrs 1, 2 and 3s are welcome to attend under parental supervision. Students from Years 4 through to 6 do not require a parent to attend.  As part of the morning training sessions, the school offers breakfast to everyone attending training from 7.45 – 8.15am. Breakfast will include cereal, fruit and juice and cost $2 per person. We appreciate parents assisting with breakfast and serving if you are available.

Sacred Heart Cross Country Cake Stall
At our cross country, our Year 6 families will be operating a cake stall with all items being either $1 or $2.  The cake stall is a fundraising activity for the Year 6 camp. All Year 6 families are being asked to provide items to be sold at this stall. (No nuts in items.). We are also looking for helpers to serve on the day. Thank you.

Yesterday, fifteen Year 6 representatives travelled to St Benedict’s for a ‘Just Leadership’ day, lead by Caritas Australia. This was an engaging and informative experience for our children. They actively engaged in activities that helped them recognise they have the resources and the responsibility to work for change. Thank you to Mrs Jenkinson for accompanying our children and St Ursula’s College for providing the bus for transportation.
