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.
Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School Teacher Aides
Teacher Aides at Sacred Heart assist in the classroom, supporting teachers and the students with learning.
Teacher Aides are able to work with small groups of learners to practise skills, particularly social skills like sharing and listening. Teacher aides also manage structured learning activities that support students to consolidate new ideas and concepts. This support contributes to students staying on task and ensuring that classrooms operate most effectively.
