Sacred Heart STEM tour
A celebratory morning tea for students from Sacred Heart Primary School

Celebrating clever kids, a special Swearing-in, and Executive Council

Plenty of enthusiasm and plenty of questions at Government House today as we welcomed some award winners from Sacred Heart Primary School in Highgate.

The Year 5 students joined the Governor for a celebratory morning tea and Government House tour in recognition of their Meritorious Leadership prize won in the 2020 Governor’s STEM Awards (primary school category).

The group kept the Governor busy with plenty of questions about the House, his role as Governor and even his previous career in Federal politics.

The Governor congratulated the group on their passion for discovery and learning, with student representative Jamillah thanking the Governor in return for his hospitality.

Special Swearing-in Ceremony
