A Great BIG Thank You
Sacred Heart School students and staff send a heartfelt and sincere HUGE "Thank You" to Mr. Rob Glavina and his father Mr. Glavina Snr. and to Mr. Josh Zwiers (Universal Restorations) and Mr. John Gomes (Modern Countertops/Superior Woodworks) for all the work, time and care they took to renovate the student bathrooms at the school. The new bathrooms are bright and beautiful. The students and staff love them! "Thank you" also to Mr. Jay Lazzarin who has been instrumental in organizing this renovation as well as many upgrades in our school playground. This includes new bike racks installed and the completion of the painting of the school gym. The students are also thrilled with the installation of a new slide paid for by the Parent Support Group. We are most grateful to these gentlemen for their wonderful effort to complete the work over the summer holidays. Thank you all so much!
Our Sacred Heart School Girls' 2012 Basketball Team are the Champions! They won the trophy, bringing it back to Sacred Heart School for the first time in over 30 years! A huge note of thanks to our Sacred Heart Knights of Columbus who sponsored this event for all the Catholic Independent Schools of Prince George at the amazing UNBC Sports Centre! Thank you also to our great coaches and teachers who volunteered their time and talents to training these young athletes of our school! Yeah, Sacred Heart!
Sacred Heart Awarded - Historic Places Award 2012
"The Heritage Commission of the City of Prince George is pleased to present an Historic Places Award to Sacred Heart School. The award will be presented twice on Saturday February 25th.
The first presentation will take place at noon at The Exploration Place. The plaque will be presented again that evening at the school’s annual gala fundraising event in the ballroom at the Ramada Hotel. The plaque will be accepted by the school principal, Sister Irene Baker, of the Sisters of St. Joseph religious community.
This award recognizes Sacred Heart School, situated in the city’s beautiful Millar Addition neighbourhood, as the oldest elementary school in Prince George. Planned and built in the late Forties, the school celebrated its official opening on October 30, 1949 – almost 63 years ago!
In the summer of 2011, the venerable old building’s exterior was freshly painted retaining its traditional colour but refreshed with bright blue trim around the windows. Situated on the promontory overlooking the city, the school is a familiar landmark on Patricia Boulevard at the northern entrance to the Millar Addition."
Cookbooks are now available at the school office at the price on $15 each!
The Sacred Heart School Parent Support Group has organized the creation of a school community cookbook. The cookbook is ready for sale right now. Recipes have been collected from Sacred Heart School students and Sacred Heart Cathedral parishioners. We have collected about 600 recipes which will make for an excellent cookbook you won't want to miss! This would make a wonderful gift for someone special.
Sacred Heart students and staff have been making a very conscious effort to reduce our environmental footprint and to increase awareness of the importance of the three r's of recycling, reducing and reusing.
Sacred Heart in the News: "Sacred Heart School Goes Green"
The Eco Banners were funded by Art Starts Foundation Vancouver under the direction of local artist and parent Dahne Harding. The banners were designed and created by our very own Sacred Heart School students. They are a reminder of our responsibility to the environment. These banners will be proudly displayed throughout the primary building.
