From the Presidents

Our first six months as Co-Presidents has been enjoyable and rewarding. The old adage A Job Shared is a Job Halved  is definitely a truism for us. However, it is the talented, creative and generous Alumnae Committee members who give the Association its esprit. They bring fresh ideas to our meetings and readily share their skills to ensure the success of our events throughout the year.

 

We enjoy a most amicable relationship with Anna Masters, our School Principal, and play an an integral role in the current School Community management committees and activities.

Many alumnae have participated in Class Reunions, the Mass of Remembrance, the Generations Afternoon Tea, the French Village Fair and the Small Pleasures Annual Lunch, during 2018.

 

Our success is due in great part to Melinda Adams, the Alumnae Relations Manager. She is the exemplar of Cor Unum. As well, Marian Andrews provides wonderful background support, ensures our events run smoothly and helps us leave the School without leaving a trace!          

 

We look forward to sharing Alumnae events with you in 2019. The AGM and High Tea is on Sunday 19 May and the Mass of Remembrance on Saturday 16 November.

 

We wish you and your families a Christmas season that is filled with love, happiness and peace.

 

Kerry Bergin and Marianne Cassin

Small Pleasures Lunch

As always, the Small Pleasures lunch held at Leonda on Saturday 27 October was a wonderful day showcasing everything  that is so special about the Sacré Cœur community.  

This is an excerpt from Kate Burley's welcome:

Today we have 357 wonderful women in the room supporting The Small Pleasures Fund.  A fund which was established to honour my sister in her fight with cancer and to support other alumnae members who may be experiencing a life threatening or debilitating illness or injury.  As a committee we are proud to put a smile on so many people’s faces at some very difficult times in their lives. 

 

To date we have provided a “small pleasure” to over 50 people to a value of over $45,000. We thank you for your continued support to enable us to do this.

 

These events don’t just happen. Behind the scenes the committee work tremendously hard to ensure we give you an action packed and fun filled day, but furthermore give of their time so generously to provide “small pleasures” to those in our community that need one.  I would like to publicly thank the continuing hard work of our amazing committee, Susie Smythe, Emma Fay, Ange Szeleczky, Natasha Vukelic and Nadia Mezzina.

 

In preparing for today I came across my sister’s speech that she read at our inaugural lunch, in it she said

“ I am no different to anyone else, I have mourned for the past, I worry about the future, I anticipate troubles and I struggle to live in the present wisely and earnestly. Over time I have mourned to be healthy and fit, mourned to jog around the tan and be more independent -  some of the stresses that I have endured have prevented me from living in the moment.  May we all learn how to live in the moment”

 

So today, I remind you, as my sister would have loved to: embrace life and live in the moment.

Treasurer – Charlotte Stolz (2010)

Pictured above Charlotte with Co-President

Kerry Bergin

 

I joined the Year 9 class of Sacré Cœur in 2007, after moving to Melbourne from Brisbane. Without me even seeing the school, my parents chose to enrol me at Sacré Cœur largely based on my twin brother being accepting into St Kevin’s College, keeping us in the same community, and our new house being in walking distance.

 

After climbing the mountain that was Dorrington Avenue each morning, I embraced every opportunity to play the sports offered each term, and loved studying Art, Maths and Science.

 

The end of 2018 marks my third year as Treasurer for the Sacré Cœur Alumnae Association. I value the opportunity to be involved closely with a group of strong women that offer many different talents and experiences. I have enjoyed remaining part of the school community after finishing Year 12. I currently work as a structural engineer and am even lucky enough to be involved in the early stages of design for the School’s future upgrade works!

Secretary - Genevieve Grabau (1976)

I started at Sacré Cœur in 1967 in Grade 4 in what was to be the start of a long, proud family association with the School lasting 37 years.

 

I found the transition from a local Catholic primary school challenging.  Girls wearing smocks and playing “elastics” in the playground was very different for a young ‘tomboy’.

 

In the 1970s I saw the School (and the RSCJ) go through interesting and changing times, as was happening in the broader society.  I have very favourable memories of the traditions upheld by the school and the focus on developing the students into independent women with a sense of Social Justice. 

 

I am blessed that many long-lasting friendships which were established at school continue today. 

 

As an Alumnae Committee member I value the opportunity to continue my association with the school.  Our committee members come from different decades at Burke Road.  I love hearing their stories and perspectives on Sacré Cœur across the years, all from the one shared tradition.

Speaker, Writer, Radio Presenter and Disability Advocate

Many of you will be familiar with Mandy McCracken's journey.

Visit to Sophie's Farm by
2018 alumnae

Five of our newest alumnae from the Class of 2018 recently arrived in the Philippines to be  part of the  Immersion program at Sophie's Farm.  

They were meet by Sr Lydia who took them to lunch and will escort them on a tour of Manila before flying to Samar and Sophie's Farm.  We are very proud of them all and wish them well on their travels.

Maureen Hansen (1949) and Dr Anne Lynch (1949) 

It was wonderful to welcome back to Sacré Cœur at the AGM earlier in the year, two wonderful alumnae from the Class of 1949, Dr Anne Lynch and Maureen Hansen. We thank them for their continued support of the School and are pleased to witness the longevity of this school girl friendship.

Teacher Update

Kathy Couzens 
Teacher at 
Sacré Cœur 1988 - 2018 

When I returned to Australia from travelling overseas in 1987, Lois Bunn and Colleen Abbott interviewed me for a teaching position in the primary school. I commenced in 1988, which was the centenary year, and I wondered how I could possibly grasp the history and traditions at such an important time. Indeed, it was the best opportunity for immersion. I immediately felt in love with the sense of community and the charism of the School.

 

I have so many fond memories of my eleven years in the Primary school and twenty in the Secondary School, in particular the RSCJ, who were amazing, inspirational women who were so supportive of all that we did.

 

A change that several people have pointed out is that I would have seen quite a few Principals; actually there have been six in all. I would like to especially thank John Fox who had faith in my ability to contribute to the education of students in the Middle Years. This is where I feel that I have developed most as a teacher. I have been truly privileged to teach with many outstanding colleagues across four faculties: English, Religious Education, Humanities and Learning Enrichment.

Over the years, the school gave me so many opportunities to impact on the curriculum, three major ones being Tournament of Minds, Aboriginal Perspectives and Philosophy. These programs continue to this day in various re-incarnations.

 

Building community is always so important to our School so it is significant that it is this year’s focus goal when I am leaving Burke Road.

 

I shall take that wonderful sense of community with me into my retirement from teaching at Sacré Cœur.

French Village Fair

French Village Fair Proves a Great Success!

Set against a backdrop of beautiful weather and strong community spirit, the 2018 French Village Fair staged in October was a fantastic success.

With over 3,600 attending, including many alumnae, our local community gathered at Burke Road to raise money for the RSCJ Sophie’s Farm Mission, and celebrate our School’s rich French origins.

 

There were many highlights on the day including 35 stalls (including an Alumnae Association stall) and rides, high quality music performances, silent auction and enticing cuisine and crafts.

Entertainment for the day was superbly organised and led by Sacré Cœur music students and headlined by the Battle of the Bands staged in the afternoon. In what was a keenly contested musical showdown, De La Salle College took out first place.

 

Director of Community Relations, Alastair Lee says that the community support for the Fair was amazing.

 

‘We had over 250 community volunteers involved on the day, including so many of our alumnae, along with over fifty cash, in-kind and silent auction sponsors. The support was just outstanding for the Fair and Sophie’s Farm, and our alumnae particularly were magnificent with their support.’

 

In a further highlight, Chairman of the East Malvern Community Branch of the Bendigo Bank, Mr Peter Norman OAM presented Principal Anna Masters with a sponsorship cheque on stage for $10,000.

 

As for the final fundraising result, Mr Lee says that a significant amount of money looks to have been raised for Sophie’s Farm.

 

‘I am pleased to announce that the Alumnae Association stall raised a very impressive $1,698.40 over the course of the day through sales of alumnae merchandise and the wonderful new publication, One Heart 1888-2018. I really can’t thank our Alumnae Association enough for their great support of the Fair and particularly for such a great stall fundraising result.’

 

‘The School will also make an official announcement in the coming days about the overall amount raised from the Fair, but it looks like our community has raised nearly $38,000 that will go towards vital life-changing infrastructure projects for Sophie’s Farm. The final result is going to be substantial,’ he said.


Where are they Now?

Maddy Friend (2008)

Since graduating from Sacré Cœur in 2008, I’ve had a number of wonderful experiences and opportunities.

 

After studying a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree at Monash, I was fortunate enough to be selected for a Graduate Program in the Department of Defence in Canberra. In my time at Defence, I’ve worked in a variety of policy areas, met some fantastic people, and been given opportunities I’d never have otherwise received, including touring Defence bases throughout New South Wales.

 

I was also fortunate to spend a year working overseas, at the Australian Consulate-General in New Caledonia. This allowed me to use my French language skills (which I started learning in  Sacré Cœur's Joigny way back in 2000!) and experience living overseas.

 

The values instilled in me at Sacré Cœur- treating others with respect; and the importance of education, community, and personal development - are ones I have carried with me in my career thus far.

Jess Southey (2010)

Pictured above : Rebekah Malin (2010), Jess Southey (2010), Tanya Southey and Anthony Harb 

Jess Southey was a student of  Sacré Cœur from 1998-2010. She is currently working full time as an artist/illustrator in Melbourne. Her work primarily focuses on portraiture and pop culture working with mediums such as graphite, watercolour, oils and gouache. Jess’ work can be viewed here. For commission information please make contact via email

 

Tanya Southey, Jess' mother,  is a Melbourne based author. She grew up in South Africa before moving to Australia in 1997.  Tanya has always loved reading, writing and telling stories, however, up until recently she spent most of her life in corporations.  Her favourite time of the week as a child, was when the library bus would rumble into her sleepy suburb.  Rain or shine, she needed to be first in line to get on the bus and borrow as many Enid Blyton books as possible!

Ollie and the Starchaser is a children’s book illustrated by Sacré Coeur alumna Jess Southey and written by her mother Tanya Southey.

Ollie and the Starchaser is an adventure story set in Broome, Australia for children aged 8 to 12.

 

Nanoo is Ollie’s beloved grandmother and an astronomer who discovered the planet Terenza, in a gentle galaxy east of the moon. When Nanoo disappears on a trip to the Outback, Ollie cannot accept that she is gone. He is worried, sad and refuses to believe that Nanoo would leave him. He feels helpless sitting around on his farm with only his faithful Labrador, Chloe, to listen to his feelings. However, his luck changes when the Starchaser and his Star-fordshire Terrier, Buddy, plot a way to get to Earth from Terenza. The boys and their dogs begin an epic adventure to find Nanoo. Their journey takes them across the Outback, up the Steps to the Moon and into space. But will Ollie find her, and will he bring her home?

 

Copies of the book can be purchased directly with the option to have them signed. A copy is also available in the Sacré Cœur library!

Welcome to our newest alumnae - 2018 VCE Students!

The Alumnae Association Presidents, Marianne and Kerry met with the Class of 2018 at the end of Term 3 to welcome them to the Alumnae Association.  It was a timely reminder of the importance of the Sacré Cœur bond......

 

Most of you have spent a third or even two thirds of your life as part of the warm and vibrant Sacré Cœur community and within a few months you will be saying farewell to your teachers, class mates and taking one more glance at the brown stair case!

 

However it is not farewell but rather Au Revoir because you are now a LIFE MEMBER of the Sacré Cœur Alumnae Association.  Your parents paid for your life membership upon enrolment!

 

After your exams and schoolies, your lives will branch out into many different communities and take you down challenging and interesting paths.  The Sacré Cœur Alumnae Association is a kind and caring community and we are here for you at any stage of your lives.

 

We hope you enjoy reading our publications - the Burke Road Bulletin and Esprit de Cœur newsletter which will keep you up to date with news on your fellow alumnae and all the traditional and new events held by the Sacré Cœur Alumnae Association – all of which you are invited to!  You will most likely have numerous residential moves so please email our Alumnae Relations Manager, Melinda Adams or the school so we can update our database.

 

The Alumnae Association is also connected to AMASC - The World Association of the Alumnae and Alumni of the Sacred Heart and it can be exciting to see what is going on throughout the world via their website.

 

We wish you all the best for your next step in life!

Aunt of Margaret Wimpole (1966), Catherine Neal (1975) and Margaret Neal (1981)

 

Her daughter , Anne McInnis  (1971) shared some memories....

Mum was so proud of reaching the age of 93 yet lost her chase in her wish of reaching 94 and more. 

She always loved her days at ‘Sac ‘ as did I. Mum was a boarder at Sacré Cœur and said she always felt like a welcomed member of the family when she returned after weekend leave. Mother Boyle always featured in her conversations and Mother Percy Dove (short and chubby and lovely) always gave her a warm welcome home.  I think she was Mum’s welcoming Mother dove back to school each time.

Mum loved it plus kept up with her old school friends as the years have gone on. Mother Hilda was there when I also attended as a day student. The only thing Mum didn’t like were the cold balcony sleeping conditions. That age group continued on to be a stoic influence to us all and deserve to be remembered in such a warm and friendly environment as the  Sacré Cœur Chapel. I personally always loved the side chapel – so peaceful. Liz  Vinning  (Hoy 1969 )is Mum’s god daughter and they loved each other's company.

Securing our financial independence
