What a wonderful evening I had last night. I attended Our Lady of the Sacred Hearts’ speech night at the Sir John Clancy Auditorium at the University of NSW.
It wasn’t just an ordinary speech night it was also a celebration of the year’s events, the students’ and the schools successes and achievements and a farewell to the inspirational Principal Ms Libby Denny as she moves on from her role in 2014.
The evening was also about remembering the history and the schools culture of the past 100 years as OLSH celebrates its Centenary, 1913-2013.
I felt proud of the students as I sat and watched them perform their songs, drama acts, dance routines and musical talents. I was also inspired to find out that so many students excel in so many areas of curricular, not only academia but religion, sport and technology.
I was also pleased to hear that most of the Year 11 students contribute to many social justice programs such as St.Vincent De Paul night patrol.
I had the honour in presenting the Year 9 awards and one of those students, Elizabeth Perry had outstanding achievement in nine subjects. This result just shows that the OLSH College provides a diverse range of opportunities for the students to excel.

I would like to thank Principal Ms Libby Denny, Assistant Principal Ms Robyn Rodwell and everyone at OLSH for putting on such a fantastic speech night and for providing so much opportunity to the students so as to ensure they become well rounded citizens, one day contributing to our local community and our nation.
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish OLSH, its students and families a safe and happy holiday & look forward to coming to your school again in 2014.
