IHM offers the opportunity for students to be involved in decision making and leadership through a variety of initiatives
Such initiatives include class meetings, Student Leadership Forum and House Leaders.
All students are expected to be heart centred leaders, but our formal roles allow students to participate in and share leadership in a way that helps others here in our school community, our parish and our global world.
The House names include:
Chevalier (Red) is named after the founder (Jules Chevalier) of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart priests and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart sisters who supported the opening of our school. The MSC priests continue to support our community and parish.
Hartzer (Green) is named after Marie Louise Hartzer who was the first Superior General for the congregation of the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. This group of sisters were asked to run Immaculate Heart of Mary School from 1951.
Beovich (Yellow) was the name of the Archbishop who opened our school. He was appointed Archbishop in 1939; Matthew Beovich's appointment was hailed as the beginning of a new era because he was the first Archbishop of Adelaide who had been born in Australia, rather than Ireland.
Our students are provided with many opportunities for leadership and learning about leadership. This includes being House Leaders and Student Representative Council Members (SRCs).
Here are our House Captains for 2023:
Kayleigh, Oliver, Alexis
Matthew, Jett, Rumaya
Ekta, Elaine, James
Congratulations to each of you and may your leadership build our IHM community so that we all flourish.
