Mrs Sandra Manning and Mr Chris Kan launched an art competition at the beginning of Term 3, providing students with the opportunity to create their very own portrait of Euphrasie Barbier, the Founder of the RNDM Sisters. The winning students would receive a $300 prize and have their artwork used to represent Euphrasie around the College for a year. Other entrants recieved a gift voucher to Riot Art and Craft.

The winner was announced at the end of the Sacred Heart Day Mass. 

Second place was awarded to Morgan Knox-Lee (Year 12), who created an outline of Euphrasie and filled it with small photos of students and staff at the College. This piece of art is particularly amazing from different distances.


We are pleased to announce that Tessa Covich (Year 12), was the winner of the competition.


Her depiction of Euphrasie was designed as follows:

"The heart symbolises Euphrasie's connection to the RNDM Sisters and the formation of Sacred Heart College. It is elevated to be 3D to act as a focal point, highlighting  our school as the work of Euphrasie and her Sisters.

The red gradient background relates to Sacred Heart's core colour - red.

The use of dots in the technique of pointillism, symbolises Aboriginal culture as being present on the land the RNDM Sisters built their schools on."

Well done to all of the entrants. All pieces of art are currently on display in the Koort Centre.
