Our Grade 11s will be starting their Job Shadowing Workshop on the 9th, 12th, and 13th of April 2021.

For those of us who have had the experience of participating in this exercise, we might remember how difficult it was for students to get in contact with people who would be willing to take a student for a day, especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are looking for alumni who are willing to come and share industry experience with the students to kick-off their job shadowing, by spending a morning with us on the 9th of April.

If you would be interested in sharing wisdom, email: alumni@sacredheart.co.za

Dear Alumni,

We are closely approaching the Alumni Cocktail Afternoon in Honour of Mr Frank Hollingworth.

This event is an opportunity to contribute to the Sacred Heart College Scholarship Fund.

Sacred Heart College has always been at the forefront of social change, clearly illustrated by its actions in the 1970s, when in defiance of apartheid legislation that forbade racial integration, it was one of the forerunners of non-racial schooling in South Africa. In the 1990s, because of its progressive non-racial ethos, it became the school of choice in
Johannesburg – for returning political exiles children.

The college has continued to provide scholarships to learners from marginalized, vulnerable communities with limited resources and options to access quality education and improve their future educational and career prospects.

Sacred Heart College has never been an elite institution that can only be accessed by the wealthy, it has long operated successfully, as a place of quality learning,
providing equal opportunities for students from different backgrounds.

All proceeds towards the scholarship fundraising event go to a deserving student that is excelling in Physical Sciences.

To RSVP, please email: alumni@sacredheart.co.za

Looking forward to seeing you there!
