The Sacred Heart Primary School has drawn the curtain on another show stopping year with a spectacular school concert.

It was considered by the regular concert goers to have been the best one yet, and that’s saying something! From the live crib performed by the infant classes to the side splitting comedy by the senior classes there was something for everyone. The singing and dancing were highly complimented, coupled by fabulous costumes and impressive light work it was a night to remember. A special thank you to all the parents who helped with costumes and face painting. The support you have given your children and the school during the year is appreciated more than words can say. The children and teachers should all take a bow, the talent on show was second to none and the work that went into the concert was phenomenal. We hope you all have a peaceful and restful holiday and we wish you all health and happiness for the New Year.
