Welcome to our new student Maximillian who joined our Year Prep class on Monday. Maximillian has settled in so well, that after just one day at school, he was performing with his fellow Year Prep and Year One/Two students in the puppet play on Tuesday.
Congratulations to our students in Years Prep to Two, on their fabulous puppet shows presented to our school community on Tuesday. It was great to see students from different year levels working together, to present really interesting stories using the skill of puppetry. Thank you to Bethany, Marty and Jia for giving your students such a great learning experience.
School Dinner Dance
Our school dinner dance is rapidly approaching and our parents in the Parents and Friend's committee are completing the final arrangements. Some families have already organised their table for the night and have completed the form in the school office, detailing their seating arrangements.
Remember that the dinner dance is on Friday 15th November and tickets can be booked through the Trybooking link https://www.trybooking.com/553964
The event will be held in our parish hall which is situated on David Street, just around the corner from our school. Ticket prices are as follows: $35.00 for adults (ie 13 years and above) and $15.00 for primary aged students, whilst preschoolers are free.
Music from the Heart
Earlier this week some important information was sent home about purchasing the CD of all our students singing, and arrangements for our school concert to be held at the Thornbury Theatre, on Thursday 21st November. As the night draws closer, more information will be sent home to families. In the meantime I ask that you continue stay informed by reading our weekly newsletter and other correspondence that is sent home.
Displayed below, is just some of the artwork submitted by our students in the competition for having the right to depict the cover of our CD, "Music from the Heart". I don't envy the job of our judges with so many creative pieces of artwork entered.
I would like to express my gratitude to Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories Pty Ltd, for their continued support of our school. Obviously a very community minded company, they make a donation to a school each year on behalf of each of their employees. Julie (Year 3) and Sean's (Year Prep) father Lip, is an employee of the company, and each year a donation to our school is made. Thank you on behalf of the Sacred Heart School community.
Our Catholic Education Melbourne School Improvement Survey data (CEMSIS), arrived early last week. Thank you to those families who participated in the survey. Your responses are a very important part of our continued improvement strategy. In the coming weeks, the staff will sit down with Catholic Education Melbourne staff and analyse the data to set directions for next year. I will feedback the results of the survey in our newsletter before the end of the year.
