On behalf of the school community, I invite you to take the time to look at the information available on this website.  It is an excellent reflection of the interest and dedication the staff at Holy Name have towards the pupils and families of our fine school.

Community News

Holy Name is committed to academic success for all students with a particular focus on reading. With the spotlight firmly on reading we have included our Prep students in 'Buddy Reading on a Rug’. Our school leaders are wonderful buddies enjoying their responsibility of reading with a Preppie each morning.


This Saturday, October 20 sees the Holy Name Art Show Fun Day come to life. Our event coordinators, committee, and volunteers have worked tirelessly, with months of planning and preparation to host this upcoming fundraiser and social occasion for our school community. The focus is two-fold. A day filled with entertainment and activities for the children as well keeping a strong focus on the very high standard of the Children’s Art Competition. Congratulations to Christie and Carolyn for ably leading the organizing committee of this event. All families, relatives and friends are invited and encouraged to assist and attend our Holy Name Art Show Fun Day for 2018.

This Monday, October 22 is a pupil-free day. All staff are involved in PD in their particular field. All staff will be engaged in professional development. The teaching staff will join with 4 of our fellow Catholic schools to present our teaching and learning journey for 2018. Mrs Hawkins and Mrs Finn have been the working party for our presentation. We are presenting our Visible Learning program, showing the changes we have adopted and presenting the learning data of our students. The School Officers will attend professional development with Mrs Spencer and our Administration Officers will attend financial & ‘front desk’ training hosted by TCSO. All staff are off-site, so parents please be aware that the school and school office is closed.   

Congratulations to Aliyah, our representative at the State Athletics Championships to be held in Cairns this weekend. This is a proud time for Aliyah's family and Holy Name. It is a first in my time as Principal to congratulate a student who has made the Darling Downs Athletics team.  Well done! An added bonus is that our Yr 5/6 teacher, Mr Anderson will also attend the carnival in an official staff capacity. Holy Name will be very well represented.

Parents and school community, we have ‘World Teachers Day’ coming up on Friday, October 26. Do encourage and assist your child / children to do something special for our dedicated and committed teachers. They go over and above their hours of duty, spend their own income on resources and do deserve much recognition and acknowledgement!

The Mayoral Medal Award function is Thursday, October 18. Our Yr 6 student Deo, is the Holy Name nomination for the 2018 Mayoral Medal. Deogracias, Dimercia, Mrs Bliss and Mrs Manthey will attend this function to represent Holy Name.
