Frank Hollingworth Retirement

By Alumni, School News

We were thrilled to have some of our alumni share in the launch of the Frank Hollingworth Scholarship Fund.  We shared memories of Frank or Mr Holly (as he was affectionately known).

The Frank Hollingworth Scholarship is designed to recognize Mr Hollingworth’s legacy of 43 years of service to students at Sacred Heart College. The scholarship is also about offering an opportunity to a young talented student who shows the promise of contributing to the field of medicine, engineering, scientific research or education.

A scholarship at Sacred Heart College is much more than an investment in a young person’s future. It is an investment in our collective future as citizens of the world. The returns on this investment are invaluable and everlasting.

Sacred Heart Day 2020

By Alumni

On the occasion of our 131st birthday, we celebrated our birthday with a liturgy prepared by Director of Ethos, Ms Pam Paton-Mills.  As we could not be together celebrating mass in the Macartin Centre, the liturgy was shared with all students and staff via Google classroom.  Even parents and some staff watched the liturgy which was also screened in the chapel.

The day’s festivities included a showcase of dancing talent and acting performances.

We at Sacred Heart College are going to follow the rainbow! As a sign of solidarity, rainbows are appearing all around the world. Have you seen the heartwarming window trend sweeping the globe? Guess what? We are joining in, sharing hope and joy in our communities.

The simple act of painting a window rainbow or creating a rainbow with chalk on pavements are helping to spread some much needed joy for those who are confined inside. It’s often in the darkest of times that little rays of sunshine appear, which is exactly what the rainbow trend is all about.

It’s thought to have first started in Italy, soon followed by Spain and now the rest of the world — as we show we’re all in this together. Painting and drawing is a great way to help keep us entertained and feeling a little brighter while we are at home.

Many schools are encouraging the children to paint the rainbows while at home, unable to see each other. It’s been dubbed The Rainbow Trail’.

Your project is to make and create your own rainbow by either painting a picture, drawing it on paper or decorating your driveway with a colourful rainbow using chalk. Include a short message of hope in your picture, ask your parents to take a picture and send it to your teachers.

You and your parents can also post it on social media and include the following tags to spread the joy: #chasetherainbow #staysafe #rainbowsinwindows #rainbowsofhope #rainbowtrail #rainbowshc #staysafeshc

Let’s continue to spread hope with our rainbows.
