Kia Ora Koutou! Ko Alana Oliver toku ingoa. My name is Alana Oliver and this year I have the honour and privilege of being your Deputy Head Girl of Learning.
A little bit about me! My family is made up of Dad, Mum, my dog, my two older sisters, and my two younger twin sisters, Jenni and Laura, who are both here at Sacred Heart! I love food and this stems from my love for baking and cooking. I also have a love and passion for sports, Netball in particular.
This year holds a lot of promise, excitement and room for growth. I hope to create and nurture a safe, comfortable, positive, and fun learning environment for all students here at Sacred Heart.
Learning is very important to me. For this reason, I promise to do my absolute best to ensure that every student feels supported and encouraged throughout their learning journey. Learning looks, sounds, and feels different for everyone, but the most important thing is understanding and finding your unique style of learning regardless of what that might look like. One of my goals for this year is to implement some great ideas, workshops, and activities that will help students throughout their 2022 learning journey.
This year, I encourage everyone to recognise that failure is a part of this journey and without mistakes there is no growth, so embrace your opportunities and never stop learning, because life never stops teaching.
