This year's Sacred Heart Science Fair was our largest yet! With over 60 projects from Grades 9-12, there was a little something for everyone. Students worked hard to complete experiments in a variety of categories, including experimentation, innovation and research studies. We were extremely fortunate to have so many gracious members of our community who volunteered their time and expertise to provide feedback to our students. Our judges included alumnae/i, university professors, parents, friends, and families. The students with the winning projects will attend the Regional competition in April. Thank you to the many people who made this great event possible!
It was all Spanish all day long in the Little Theatre for the 20th Annual Spanish Fiesta. The day allows all of our students learning Spanish to immerse themselves in Spanish language, food, and culture. Highlights included a potluck lunch, salsa dancing, traditional cutting of cake, art projects, and a piñata surprise. Thanks to parents Michelle Pugh-Toole and Andrea Segovia for their help. It appeared as if everyone had muy divertido!
At the end of 2017, Kim King, RSCJ, and Manager of the Barat Spirituality Centre was recognized as a Scholastic Canada Reading Champion. The Award, created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Scholastic Canada, honours those who help children discover the pleasure and power of reading. Kim was given the opportunity to donate a Scholastic library worth $1,000 to the not-for-profit organization of her choice. We are immensely grateful she chose Sacred Heart! The collection of books will be housed in our library for all to enjoy. Thanks also go to Donna Dolan, RSCJ, who nominated Kim with an eloquent tribute which you can read here.
