"Donations and Sponsorship of Pipes"
We are delighted to advise that the Minister for Planning, The Hon.
Kristina Keneally MP, has just announced a Grant of $30,000 as part
of the NSW Heritage Grants 2009-11 to enable completion of the conservation
of the 1890 French Puget Organ. In addition, we have been granted a
further $10,000 “kick-start funding”. This brings to three
the number of Grants, in total $66,250, made available for the conservation
of this instrument, recognising its importance and uniqueness in Australian
history. It is also a tribute to The Society of the Sacred Heart which
has owned and cared for the organ since it was installed in the Convent
in Bordeaux in 1890 and subsequently sent to Australia in 1904.
Please continue those donations and sponsorships, thank you.

McKay celebrated her Golden Jubilee of profession. Her dedicated
pipe is one way to honour her in such a special year. There are also
dedicated pipes for many RSCJ and former teachers, e.g. Miss Pat Gillis
who taught piano at Rose Bay Convent for many years.
Anyone can donate in memory of someone who is or was special to you
and all donations are tax deductible.
The Horbury Hunt Club has donated a façade pipe and the dedication
is worthy of full mention:
“Dedicated by The Horbury Hunt Club Inc., in memory of John
Horbury Hunt, 1838-1904, architect of the Convent of the Sacred Heart,
Rose Bay,including the convent chapel and its glorious interior”
Many classes have had reunions and decided to donate a pipe in memory
of their happy years at School.
