WELCOME PREP FAMILIES 2015
Recently we inducted the 2015 Prep families and the beautiful students into the inclusive Holy Name community. The morning was steeped in introducing them to the ‘Holy Name Way.’ Fr Ray began the proceedings by giving a prayerful blessing. This was followed by an address by Mrs Eileen Moyle TCEO on ‘Early Literacy Skills for starting school’ very useful and informative for parents starting their children on their educational journey. Much more information about Holy Name was shared by the Chairperson of the School Board Mr Richard Landers, the P&F President Mr Ben Bathurst, the Clothing Shop Convenor Mrs Coleman, the Tuckshop Convenor, Mrs Pwney, After School Care (EXTEND) Miss Munchow. While the parents soaked up all this information the new preppies were enjoying our wonderful Prep facilities in the care of Miss Chester and Mrs Jaeger.

On Thursday 30 October, 2014, Nyok (Year 6) was presented with the 2014 Mayoral School Achievement Medal by His Worship the Mayor Councillor Paul Antonio, at a ceremony at Christian Outreach College. The Mayoral School Achievement Medal is a celebration of students who overcome the struggles that some of our young people face every day to complete what should be some of the best years of their lives. Nyok was formally recognised for his personal success amidst hardship. Holy Name Primary School and the Toowoomba community congratulate Nyok as an extraordinary student!

FAMILY SUNDAY MASS:

The attendance of all families and staff will make this a very enjoyable morning. Please make it your priority to attend.

• Graduation powerpoint, presentation of certificates, P&F presentations to graduating families and departing staff.
All classes will be involved in this day. It is not just for the parents of the graduating class. It is an opportunity for all families to give thanks to God for the wonderful year that has been and to say farewell before we all take a very well earned break. The Year 5 families are asked to contribute to the shared lunch by way of support for the graduating class and their families. Some of the Year 5 students will be ushers and waiters at the graduation luncheon.
