Parent Drop Off/Pick Up Zones
Please ensure that when you're are dropping off or picking up your child from school that you do not park in the bus zones. It has been reported by our School Crossing Supervisor that this has been occurring.
When a vehicle parks in a 'No Parking' or Bus Zone, this blocks that vision of the orange flags which is to alert traffic that they are approaching a school crossing zone.
Thank you for your understanding.
We are Planning to hold our Athletics Carnival on Friday the 22nd of October on school grounds. We are missing some shot puts and discus. If you took one home to practice last year (or the year before?), could you please return them to school as soon as possible. Thank you.

Chaplain at Sacred Heart School
CHAPLAIN’S CHATTER by Maryann Leonard
My name is Maryann Leonard. My husband John and I moved to Corryong at the end of June this year. I am the new Anglican Priest for Corryong, Biggara and Cudgewa.
I have had over thirty years experience as an Educator in Private and Public Schools. Specialising in Religious Education and being part of creating relative curriculum. I have also held various leadership positions. My role has also seen me as a Chaplain, teacher and head of student welfare and Child Safe Officer.
While my husband was in the defence force and stationed in Townsville, I lectured at James Cook University QLD, in Primary Education. While working at James Cook I also held a position as an Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Tutor.
I will be working at Sacred Heart Catholic School Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I am looking forward to eventually meeting the extended school community and getting to know the students and staff. This is an exciting time. The students will be referring to me as Maryann.
Chaplains support the emotional wellbeing of students by providing pastoral care services and strategies that support the emotional wellbeing of the broader school community. They work closely with wellbeing and allied health members in schools to support students and their educational outcomes, staff, families and the wider school community. (NSCP pg 3)
May you all have a wonderful break, and hopefully will see everyone on site in Term 4.
