FROM YOUR PRINCIPAL
As I reflect on a very busy and productive Term 3, I am proud of the many successes for Holy Name students and the dedicated work and commitment of Holy Name staff. They have excelled in The Arts through their inaugural participation in ‘Sing-Out’, the amazing production of ‘We are Aussie Kids’ with our local singer, songwriter Josh Arnold, the fantastic performance of our choir at the Art Show. In Athletics our students competed at Central Zone and Darling Downs level while academically our students excelled showing continued growth and improvement in NAPLAN results. The enrichment program focuses on students participating in the ICAS academic completions of Science, English, Mathematics and Spelling as well as the Opti-MINDS Challenge. The success and improvement in both these areas has been simply awesome. A greater number of students were involved in the ICAS competitions with many students receiving Merit, Credit and Distinction awards. The pinnacle of our term has been the success of the OPTI-Mind teams. The Social Science team were awarded Regional winners and the Language Literature team was placed second with an honours award. We have enjoyed a term of excellent student achievement across all areas of the curriculum. Well done Holy Name! Enjoy a happy and restful holiday with your families.
