Senior Council 2020

Senior Council Leadership

Head Girl
Alisha Jacob

Hello! My name is Alisha Jacob and it is my honour to be Head Girl for 2020.

This year has been quite an unforgettable one already. Amidst COVID-19, the true spirit of our Sacred Heart family shone through. In our homes, we continued to epitomise our school’s vision, “Ignite the passion and inspire young women to change the world”, and indeed we have. We showed resilience in our learning, determination to adapt and hope for the future. I am so proud to be a representative of this extraordinary group of girls who all have the capability to set out and become change-makers. My mission in my role this year is to enhance our culture of care, especially after being apart from each other during lockdown. I am blessed to be working with an ambitious Student Council this year who are dedicated to serving and caring for our students, as we continue to do with our student dedicated Instagram page. We have faced our first adversity and have come out soaring. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds. 

I am Sacred Heart, You are Sacred Heart, We are Sacred Heart!!!

Deputy Head Girl Learning
Lucy Muldowney

Kia ora!

My name is Lucy Muldowney, and I have the absolute privilege of being Deputy Head Girl – Learning this year.

The definition for learning when searched for on Google, says “the acquisition of knowledge or skills through study, experience, or being taught”. For me, this doesn’t necessarily just highlight academics. Learning is being a part of a sports team and perfecting that new hockey skill; learning is experiencing the rich, diverse culture we have here at Sacred Heart; learning is spending hours on that piece of artwork you have been dying to finish; learning is being a part of the multiple clubs and committees Sacred Heart offers to all students’; learning is recognising that the word “fail” stands for ‘first attempt at learning’; learning is experiencing and trying new things with an open mind.

My goal is to emphasise that learning is a process, you will face times of adversity in all aspects of your learning, and it is essential we are diligent within our approach to these challenges. I want to encourage all students’ to support and encourage their peers in their learning and personal goals throughout the year.

Deputy Head Girl
Special Character
Beth Ranapiri

Tēnā koutou,

My name is Beth Ranapiri, and I have the honour of being Sacred Heart’s Deputy Head Girl – Special Character for 2020. 

I am very passionate about my Māori culture, and have been an active member of the Sacred Heart Kapa Haka rōpū since Year 9. I am also extremely passionate about my faith, as I am a proud and active Catholic practicing at St Columba’s Parish. I want to help lead the school through their Catholic journey this year, and I want to be a way of sharing God’s love and light to the students of Sacred Heart.

For me, faith is not only about believing in God. Faith can be about believing in yourself, about believing in your skills and abilities, and about believing in those who surround you. Through faith, I want to help our students become the strong wāhine that I believe they can be.
