Term Three started with Sacred Heart celebrating NAIDOC Week. On Monday we had a special guest at school, Uncle Barry, who welcomed us to country with a traditional Smoking Ceremony. Then on Wednesday the students took part in a NAIDOC Week Liturgy and had the opportunity to try kangaroo sausages for lunch, courtesy of Woolworths. The children finished off NAIDOC Week by taking part in four activities with the other students in their house. They learned about Indigenous culture, art, games and stories.
This years NAIDOC Week celebrations have been an incredible experience that was made possible by the hard work of our staff, in particular, the Indigenous Perspectives Team; Mr B, Mrs Cushen, Miss Conaghan and Mr Landers.
The 24th of June is the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, one of the most exciting events on our school calendar!
In 2021 the day began with a mass to celebrate the Feast, with Father Minh-Thuy explaining what the Sacred Heart of Jesus means and ways we can show love. Between recess and lunch, it was all fun at the stalls and games, organised by the classes and P&F. After having Subway for lunch, the children spent the afternoon completing activities based on love and teamwork in their houses.
All money raised goes towards supporting the incredible work of Lifelink and the Loreto Sisters.
