SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY
Last term we held our Years 5 - 8 Cross Country on our oval. Our beautiful Preppies experienced their first sporting event for the school. Due to the wet weather last term, our Senior Cross Country was held this morning at Newtown Park. We had a wonderful time and a massive thank you to those staff, parents and students who helped to make this a tremendous day. Well done to all competitors who gave it their all on the day. Each child participated well and represented their house with great pride and passion: A special congratulations goes to our place getters.
P & F NEWS
Mother’s Day Stall Mother's Day is rapidly approaching. It is a beautiful tradition that encourages children to give thanks and show appreciation for their mothers. I would like to invite Holy Name families to support our annual Mother's Day Stall. You can do this by donating items such as soaps, cosmetics, candles, cups, homemade gifts, chocolates etc. We are still in great need of donations for the stall. If we do not have enough donations, not every child will have the opportunity to purchase. Children love to buy gifts from the Stall. It's their chance to buy something special for Mum, and don't forget Grandmothers too!!
Please leave items at the school office as soon as possible to allow time for them to be wrapped and priced. The Mother's Day Stall will be held on the 7th (in the Undercroft Area) and 8th May (in the MEAC. After the prayer Ceremony, the Mother's Day Stall will be open for everybody to browse or purchase from our very exciting range. Mum's, Dad's grandparents, siblings, everyone is welcome!). Prices: 50cent Lucky Dips; $1, $2 & $5 gifts; maximum purchase per day - $5 per child.
Art Show The Art Show committee has started putting together the first stages of the 2015 Holy Name Art Show. One of these tasks is a list of Sponsors that help make this night the success it is. Last year we were able to raise in excess of $13,000 from sponsorship which then purchased great resources for the school, mainly in the form of new IT equipment.
This amount was generated from both monetary donations and prize donations for the multi-draw raffle. If you have a business or know of any businesses that would be able to donate either money or prizes please leave their contact details at the school office and an invitation letter will be sent out asking for their contribution.
