On June 11th we celebrated Feast of the Sacred Heart. This is the Feast of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. We remember divine love and compassion of the heart of Jesus towards all humanity. Our Parish and School, which were developed in the late 19th Century, are dedicated in the praise and honour of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This was a wonderful day with a Liturgy led by Fr John Paul and the 5/6s.
The Mini Vinnies team was commissioned and presented with their certificate and badges. The Mini Vinnies and Social Justice team launched the St Vincent De Paul Winter appeal. Each classroom was asked to bring in non-perishable items to donate.
To celebrate our Feast day classes participated in tabloid sports, we had sack races, bocce, quoits, bowling and many other tabloid sports for all children. It was fantastic to see children laughing and having so much fun. We were very grateful and thankful for the beautiful weather. Our grade five and six students were an excellent example of leaders and promoted respect, responsibility and resilience all day long.
Our day ended with a fantastic display of talent. Our choir sung beautifully and performed to our audience. Followed by our incredible Sacred Heart Rock Band performance! We thank Mr. Hooper and Mrs. Nihill for their organisation and preparation. It was so entertaining and enjoyable! We rocked along all afternoon.
