Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School
AT OUR Lady of the Sacred Heart School we educate the whole child in a learning environment where teamwork and collaboration is central to students reaching their potential. In order to achieve this goal, families, students and staff are offered many opportunities that support students to learn and grow. OLSH is a part of the Campaspe Cluster of small schools. This provides many opportunities for students to be involved in a variety of events, including division netball and football, camps, as well as learning opportunities such as a science day.
Grade 3 and 4 students attended Camp Curumbene for their annual camp. They participated in activities such as archery, canoeing, indoor rock climbing and many more activities. The highlight of the camp would have been time on the flying fox. Students showed great resilience and courage as they stepped out of their comfort zone for some activities. Great thanks to Mrs Caine for attending the camp and making sure all students were able to manage life away from home (some for the first time).
On Tuesday, August 7, OLSH was lucky to have a visit from Tom and his flight simulator from the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Students made new discoveries about John Flynn, the man who established the service, and we looked at how the service has evolved into something amazing over the years.
Wednesday, August 22, saw students and staff dressed as their favourite book characters for Book Week 2018! The school was full of colour, creativity and excited students. After the dress-up parade in the senior room all classes headed to the Elmore Library to join with primary school and pre-school students. We listened to stories and did some fun activities. A huge thank you to the families who joined in the parade and put in so much time and effort to the amazing costumes!
The highlight for this term would have to be the middle and senior class excursion to see The Wizard of Oz at the Regent Theatre in Melbourne. Students read The Wizard of Oz novel, watched the DVD and realised they were in for something quite spectacular when they visited the Regent Theatre in Melbourne on Tuesday, July 24. They travelled by bus, stopping at Kilmore for a snack under shelter from the cold and the rain before David, their terrific bus driver, drove them to Fitzroy Gardens in the city where the sun was shining and the grass looked as green as the Emerald City! Students and staff ate lunch and played in front of Cook’s Cottage — the oldest building in Australia! The live performance was sensational. It kept everyone captivated with the singing, dancing, beautiful costumes, special effects and a familiar tale that we all grew to love back in the classrooms at OLSH.
