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.
