Year 7 Gold studies of the RNDM Sisters and the Sacred Heart Girls’ College History
Whilst learning about the RNDMs and the history of Sacred Heart Girls’ College, we can all say that we have learned a lot. We learnt that Euphrasie Barbier founded the RNDMs in 1893. Throughout the week , we had the opportunity to tour the school and see what we could find about the RNDMs. On the tour, we discovered lots of symbols around the school . For example in the library, there is a beautiful stain glass window with lots of symbols of our faith. Th ere was the Australian RNDM logo, there was a bible and a chalice and many more items. Another example is in the Year 8 area, where there was a board with information all about Euphrasie Barbier. We also learnt that in 1 9 57 our school was founded by the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions. The Year 7s, can all agree that we learnt a lot about the College history and the RNDMs.

During R.E, my class 7 Gold have been learning about the RNDM sisters and the background of our school. We have done a ‘scavenger hunt’ and have been finding things around the school that symbolise the work of the RNDMs and that represent some things from the past. Our R.E. teacher, Ms Clarke, has been teaching us about Eupharsie Barbier and how she was the founder of the RNDM congregation and how the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions (The RNDMs) founded our school. We are enjoying learning this topic and liked finding out about how our school became the school it is today!
