SACRED HEART SCHOOL MOSMAN SCHOOL SUPPORTER INITIATIVE 2017

 

PART A – MAJOR SPONSORS

 

Expressions of interest are currently being invited from organisations and businesses from within the Sacred Heart community who are interested in becoming  Supporters of Sacred Heart School Mosman during the 2017 school year.

 

 

The process of Supporter engagement is being undertaken in consultation with Sydney Catholic Schools who will ensure that any arrangements into which the school enters will be consistent with the principles, vision and goals for Catholic education.

 

Sacred Heart School Mosman is a Catholic school with an inspiring vision for education. The Gospel values of Faith, Generosity, Courage, Kindness, Forgiveness and Love are right at the core of Sacred Heart Mosman’s educational vision:

 

“Developing the whole person in a school where we love to learn together for life and learn to love life together, being the voice, heart and hands of Jesus in the world.”

 

Our vision is constructed around the elements of Wellbeing, Achievement and Engagement, each of which is linked by our central focus on developing strong Relationships.  Sacred Heart Mosman is seeking to work in partnership with organisations and businesses whose public image, products and services are consistent with our vision and values and where there is a mutual commitment towards the development of good community relationships.

 

 

 

 

 Sacred Heart Mosman’s website at http://www.sacredheartmosman.com/ provides great detail about our school. In short:

 

           Catholic School on site since 1900. Sacred Heart Mosman was established in 1983.

           Sacred Heart Mosman is the largest Catholic primary school on the Lower North Shore.

           We have 393 students from Kindergarten to year 6, and 275 families.

           We have 30 teaching staff, including subject specialists for Music, Art and PE.

           Sacred Heart Mosman is a leader in innovative practice in many areas.  These include the provision of 21st Century Learning environments with a high focus on 1:1 technology; the 2016 launch of the Arrowsmith program on Neuroplasticity with 20 students currently enrolled in the program.

PART B – SCHOOL COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT SUPPORTERS

 

For 2017 the school is keen to hear from anyone from within the school community who would like to contribute to our educational vision through the gifts of their own ‘Time, Treasure or Talent.’ 

 

Maybe you are a lawyer with a keen interest in social justice or human rights and would be keen to work with a group of students for a period of time, raising their awareness on this……….or training them with debating perhaps?

 

Alternatively, it could be that you have an entrepreneurial mindset and maybe could spare a little time to work with a few of our own budding Steve Jobs’s and Elon Musks’s, giving them some ideas?

 

Maybe you’re a designer/architect/scientist/medic/builder and have some skills to share with any of our students?  These are just a few examples of ways that you could potentially engage with us and contribute to our vision.

 

Once the Year group Curriculum outlines are released at the beginning of term, there may also be areas of interest that you would like to come in and present on (eg perhaps you have a relative related to one of the Australian explorers?).

 

The objective is to work in with Class Teachers to enhance the programs they teach and provide inspiration and additional engagement to the learning and teaching process.

 

If the above resonates with you and you would like to engage with us in 2017, then please get in touch with us via email over the next few weeks with your ideas. We will then try to map out a plan on our 2017 calendar.

 

The following areas may provide you with some additional food for thought:

 

·      Wellbeing and Positive Psychology……..meditation, mindfulness.

·      Environmental Sustainability.

·      Debating (Term 3)

·      School Junior and Senior Band
