    Seniors serve through transformative FaithJustice Xperience

    Posted June 6, 2016

    In their last full week of school, the young women of the Stuart Class of 2016 participated in Stuart's second annual FaithJustice Xperience. This service trip is part of the senior theology course, Faith and Social Justice. The seniors spent the entire week at the Center for FaithJustice in Lawrenceville, and broke into groups to work on daily community service projects for one of five nonprofits in the Trenton area: Carolyn Stokes Elementary School, Reading Senior Center, Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, Visitation Home and Crisis Ministry. Each evening, the girls reconvened for discussion and reflection activities. They led prayers and reflections in the mornings. In addition, the seniors cooked all of their own meals and lived in intentional community while discussing difficult issues of social injustice, inequality, and how they could use their own gifts and talents to become leaders in the world. This senior service trip truly embodies all five of the Sacred Heart Goals and Criteria as our “almost graduates” strive to live what they learn and believe. See photos from the trip in the gallery.

    Upper School track wraps up one of its greatest seasons on record

    Posted May 30, 2016

    The Upper School track team probably had its greatest season ever with two state champions in a shortened Prep B Championship! The weather only allowed 8 of the 17 championship events to be held, the team felt it was in position to win the state title! Throughout the season, the Stuart girls had 11 new school records and won medals at the Penn Relays in the 4x100 and 4x400 for the first time. The team’s dual meet record for the season was 9–1, with their only loss against Prep A Peddie. Led by a strong senior group of Pam, Juliet and Natalie McGowen, Kate Walsh, Jen Walsh, Lindsay Craig and juniors Casey Nelson, Ally McGowen, Claudary Jones, Jada Postadan and Milan Kainer. The future looks even better with a dominating sophomore class of Michelle Kwafo, Alison Walsh, Madeleine Michaels, Sonia Mohandas, Allie Burgess, Kendra Brenya, Brittney Jones and Liz Mele. Most promising are the freshmen led by basketball players Priscilla Francois and Bey Clark as well as Akilah Johnson and Allie Rounds. This special group was capable of scoring on the track, in the field and in the jumping events. They truly understand team balance. Way to go, girls and good luck in the future!

The athletes competed in (arm) wrestling, chariot races, a 50 yard dash, javelin, and discus. The events were filled with fun, great competition, and amazing Greek wardrobes!

    Alumnae News: Destiny’s newest Child, Brienna DeVlugt ’11 inspires Stuart girls

    Posted May 30, 2016

    Long before alumna Brienna DeVlugt was selected by former Destiny’s Child, Kelly Rowland, to be in her upcoming girl group, Brienna’s teachers at Stuart recognized her talent. Paving her road to success, this Class of 2011 graduate participated in Stuart's Performing Arts Program, both as a Tartantone and in three musical productions in the Upper School. While studying at Rutgers, Brienna continued to hone her talents through modeling and singing—but an opportunity to audition for Beyoncé’s dance team led to a spot on the hit BET show, Chasing Destiny. It was on this show that Brienna competed and earned a spot in the new all-girl pop group managed by Kelly Rowland. Last week, Brienna returned to Stuart to share her story with current Middle and Upper School girls and visit with the teachers who inspired her. She graciously spoke to the girls about the excitement and challenges of working in the entertainment industry and shared clips from the show and some of her music videos. Brienna also attended the Upper School Cabaret where she shared her technical and musical talents. We’re so excited for Brienna as her musical career takes off and we wish her the best of luck! See photos from Brienna’s visit in the gallery.
