Amazing Finn: From Friday 29 to Sunday 31 May Finn rode the 140mile C2C bike ride which consisted of Hartside pass, the Waskerly way and much more. The ride finished in Sunderland at around about 1pm on Sunday 31 of May. All his family were there to cheer me. It was a struggle to complete but he did it and didn't complain or get off his bike once. Finn was also very proud of his dad who did it with him. He has raised over £1500 for bliss premature baby charity. Finn decided to raise money because he was born 9 weeks premature and bliss helped him. http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/burnopfield-nine-year-old-completes-gruelling-cycle-9364873
Future Football Star: Congratulations to our football hero Archie for being chosen to represent NUFC Academy – he has worked so hard and we’re not surprised he has been snapped up by the Junior Academy!

Future Stars: Ethan took part in his first theatre show on Sunday as well as another of our pupils, Ellie, in the ‘Tyne Theatre Stage School Classical Showcase 2015’ at the Whitley Bay Playhouse. Ethan played a rabbit in "Wind in the Willows" and Ellie performed in ‘Peter Pan’. Their parents said they both did an excellent job and were naturals on stage - it was apparently a very long day for them both as they were at the theatre from 11am in the morning for a 7pm show!

Football: A big well done to Archie Small and Luke Robinson-Crow who helped their football team, Beamish Sapphires, to a 5-4 win against Boldon Colts Dinamo in the Under 9 Winter League scoring a fantastic three goals between them both! We have talent at Sacred Heart quite clearly.
Well Done Ellie: During the summer school holidays Ellie took part in three dance exams (primary ballet, primary tap and one dance disco). She passed all three exams achieving two merits and a highly commended. The dance award presentation took place at St James Park, Newcastle on Sunday 30 November.
Brave Maddie: Maddie collected her Brave Heart award yesterday; she received it from Mike Williamson, Carol Malia and Paralympic swimmer Josef Craig. The 'limo' turned out to be a party bus which the kids loved (the adults not so much). They were then taken on a tour of St James Park where Maddie got to sit in the dugout and even took a rest on the physio's bench in the changing rooms. The best bit of the tour was when the kids came out of the tunnel to local hero which was priceless. It was a great day!
Superstars: A big thank you to Thomas and Molly Hay for donating their Great North Junior Run money (a total of £108.00) to the Friends of Sacred Heart. Well done!
Superstar Connor: Well done to Connor Arnell who achieved his red belt in karate which is the third belt, after only doing karate for 5 months!
Leon the Hero: A huge well done to Leon in Y1 whose mum told me that he found an electrical appliance that was about to burst into flames at home, his quick thinking prevented what could have been a dangerous fire.
