What are Year Representatives?
The system of Year Representatives works particularly well at our school. Any Sacred Heart parent can volunteer to be a Year Rep for their child's year. The role of a Year Rep is evolving to focus more on ‘pastoral care’ ie. connecting parents, buddying new families, encouraging parents’ to support in classroom and school activities, and coordinating social events that bring families together. Year representatives liaise with teachers and encourage all parents in the year group to become involved in planning and running events throughout the year.
Our Annual Swimming Carnival (Yr 2-6)
Towards the end of the year, we host a Swimming Carnival for the Years 2-6. In the past, we have hired the Manly Andrew Boy Charlton Pool (click here to find out more about the venue). Please check Compass and our school calendar to keep updated with this years swimming carnival.
Water Safety Day at school (Kinder and Year 1)
The Kinder & Year 1 students stay at Sacred Heart and participate in a Health and Water Safety Day whilst Years 2-6 are at the Swimming Carnival. This involves participating in discussions and activities centred around the theme of Water/Sun Safety.
We usually ask that the children please wear their beach clothes and runners/joggers for the day.
The children are invited to bring beach toys and buckets, spades or a sand toy that they would like to play with in the sand pit!
