With the Holy Name Art Show just one week away, organisation and planning is complete. Next week is set-up time so many hands are needed to help. Student art work has been mounted and is ready to hang and the students are excited about seeing their 'Masterpiece' displayed. Please see the Art Show Committee notice in this newsletter for much more information. Our Art Show is a great night for the school community to socialise with other parents and visitors and view our students' fabulous art, so please come along and support our great school. Bring along friends and grandparents. The students are performing two items during the evening. The Year 5 students are presenting their Verse Speaking and the School Choir is performing two songs.

Literacy Coaching pays off at Holy Name! From mid-2013 Holy Name has engaged Angela Ehmer to coach the classroom teachers in best practice for Reading and Writing. Through the implementation of these best practices from Prep to Yr 6 we are now celebrating a fantastic NAPLAN result, with a special mention for the notable growth and improvement of our Yr 5 students. From 2013 to 2015 these students have notched up a far greater improvement than that of the average Australian student. For example the mean reading score moved from 79 in 2013 to 104 in 2015. This impressive improvement was made in all five areas tested – Reading, Writing, Spelling, Grammar & Punctuation and Numeracy. Well done Yr 5! This is good news indeed and gives us confidence that our teaching and learning programs and methods are highly successful , achieving excellence in learning through great teaching at Holy Name.
