ATHLETICS CARNIVAL Holy Name community enjoyed a fabulous Athletics Carnival to draw a very successful Term 2 to a close. The school spirit evident on the day was contagious from the student's great sportsmanship to the comradery of the parents cheering on the sideline and assisting with a myriad of tasks to make the day possible. So many people are involved in hosting an event such as this. Congratulations to Mr Red for his great planning and organisation of the day and to the teachers for their support in preparation of the event as well as training of the students. To the many parents who were involved in set-up, pack-up, assisting with events, scoring, canteen, cheering and the list goes on, I say thank you! You are an amazing role model to your children and they enjoy your presence at school events.
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Catholic Education Week 2016, July 24 to 30. The theme 'Opening Doors in the Year of Mercy' invites our school to engage in activities showcasing the opportunities that Catholic Education provides to our students. This year Holy Name will participate in the Toowoomba Catholic Schools official launch at St Joseph's College where a group of our choir students will join with Josh Arnold to provide entertainment for the event. The Yr 5 and 6 students will participate in the Catholic Schools Netball and Touch Football Carnival. The major function for Holy Name is the launch of our school video which is the culmination of a term of singing, dancing and drama with Josh Arnold and Mrs Coggan. This event will showcase how Holy Name 'opens doors' of numerous opportunities for joyful, rich learnings which are underpinned by inclusive and equal ethos allowing all students to strive to be the best person that they can be. The program for the day is as follows:
Launch of Holy Name Video, Friday July 29, 8:45am
Student performance with Josh Arnold
Inaugural viewing of the video
Class presentations - 'Catholic Education Opens Doors'
'Pancake Picnic' hosted by the P&F.
Each year Holy Name students are privileged to take part in the Opti-MINDS competition. This is an amazing experience where the students' creativity, intelligence and dedication are tapped and challenged. It is a voluntary commitment where the students (and teachers) give up their own time to be involved, equipping the students to 'do the extra' for themselves and their community. This has been provided and driven by Mrs Rachel Coggan and Mrs Kerri_Ann Manthey. I thank both these dedicated teachers for offering this extension opportunity to the students of Holy Name. To support this initiative we have engaged an Opti-MINDS coach, Rachel who will again work with our two Opti-MINDS teams, along with Mrs Manthey and Mrs Coggan to prepare them for the competition which is on Sunday, August 28. We welcome Rachel as she returns to Holy Name Thursday and Friday this week.
