What a fabulous day we had for the inaugural community fun run. The weather was perfect, we had great numbers in both runners and supporters and the atmosphere was amazing. Start and finish timing arches created a positive and colourful visual presence on the oval. Walk up registration on the morning was available and generated a lot of interest and runners. Our younger participants were very excited and keen, enjoying both receiving a runners bib with timing chip (which they were allowed to keep) and the free handouts of foam hands, clappers and thundersticks provided by adidas.
Thank you to the organising committee including Marcia Endacott (volunteers and marshalling) and Julie Tedde (course and onsite MC) which created a successful and well organised event. We were generously supported by Pietrina Sullivan, President of the Parents’ Association (marketing and sausage sizzle), Pino Di Roberto (coffee), Foundation Board (set up/pack up and marshalling) Alumnae Association (volunteers and marshalling), Ben Jamieson (photography) and the School Leadership team. Thank you to Maureen Ryan and Janine Hogan for their support and presence during the event and to other members of the leadership team for their assistance in marshalling, traffic warden and registration roles.
For the first time, fundraising was conducted in partnership with adidas and EverydayHero (online – allowing individual webpages). Net funds raised will go toward the Sacré Cœur Foundation Building Fund for our next building project.
Thank you to everyone who participated and fundraised for this event!

The third annual golf day was another successful day at the Commonwealth Golf Club. Twenty-three teams competed in an Ambrose event for the 2014 Sacré Cœur Foundation Golf Day on Monday 28 April and helped raise funds for the Sacré Cœur Foundation Building Fund. The weather held and while overcast; 91 players enjoyed a warm day on the green with camaraderie evident among parents past and present, alumnae, corporate sponsors and friends of the School.
This year thanks to the generosity of our sponsors we were able to run two raffles and a business card draw which were drawn at the end of the day in conjunction with the trophy presentations. All the prizes were well received and together with the post golf drinks, canapés and mini ice-creams provided a happy end to a very enjoyable day.
Congratulations to all who took part in this fantastic event and special congratulations to our top scorers.
