Court Theatre

Tonight the year 8s went to the Court Theatre to watch 'A Christmas Carol'. The show was very entertaining and exciting and Chelsey, Kirsten & Jan Genesis even got to go on stage and do some acting :D Thank you Mr and Mrs Murfit for generously gifting tickets to our school!

Cycle Safety

The students have had an awesome time learning the road rules and riding on the road. Everyone progressed in their cycling and rode safely. Thank you Christchurch City Council for teaching us to cycle safe.

Yr 8 Leavers Mass

TO MY BEAUTIFUL year 8’s I want you to know that I am INCREDIBLY proud of the hardworking and caring students you are.

Thank you for the endless entertainment, beautiful smiles and effort you have put into your learning.

Thank you for making my job fun and for all the special memories we have made together Sacred Heart School.

I have a verse for you from Proverbs 3:5-6
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight”

I wish you all the best as you go off to High School and look forward to hearing about your future achievements, wherever I may be in the world.

Sailing on the Fox II

Today the year 8 students had an exciting day learning how to sail a boat. It was such a great experience for them to learn how to steer, put the sails up and listen to the captains orders. A big thank you to Steve for coming along to help us and thank you Cansail for an unforgettable experience!

Nutrition - Food for thought programme

Last week Room 7 learnt about the different food group and how to read food labels. We went on a trip to the supermarket to use our new skills and identify everyday and occasional foods.

When reading labels we learnt a good guide for everyday foods is...
- Less than 10g sugar (per100g)
- Less than 10g fat (per100g)
- Less than 400g sodium (per100g)
- More than 5g fibre (per100g)

As a class we are going to drink more water and limit juice, fizzy and flavoured milk. We are also  trying to increase the amount of fruits, vegetables and brown breads we eat.

Thank you Mikaela and New World for everything you have taught us and for our $60 voucher. We look forward to planning a healthy shared lunch.
