Community News

On Saturday, the Holy Name P&F hosted our Art Show Fun Day as a new concept. Our event coordinators, committee, and volunteers worked tirelessly in the months of planning and preparation to host a very successful event filled with entertainment and activities that kept all engaged whilst keeping a strong focus on the very high standard of the Children’s Art Competition. Congratulations to Christy (Year 2 parent) and Carolyn (Year 4 parent) for the ‘dreaming-up’ of the inaugural concept and bringing the event to a successful fruition. The positive accolades, the overwhelming feeling of happiness and obvious enjoyment rendered the 2017 Art Show Fun Day a resounding success. Well done to all!

PREP 2018
Prep Orientation Day is set for Friday 3rd November. The day will involve the new Prep students and families being welcomed to our community. The students will enjoy the morning in the Prep classroom with Mrs Goldthorpe and Mrs Jaeger while the parents enjoy an information morning to ensure a smooth transition to school life.

Holy Name will celebrate Book Week in Week 3. There is a Book Fair open in the Music Room with quality books and gifts for sale. All proceeds raise funds for our school. Please do lots of Christmas shopping.  The Book Week Parade is on Friday, October 20 at 8:30 am. This is an optional participation event but students do enjoy picking their favourite book or book character for their costume. All families are invited to participate in the parade from younger siblings to parents.

Check out the super cool students from Holy Name School who have collaborated with Small Town Culture to create 'Aussie Kids', a production full of talent and personality. The music video is Episode 3 in the 'Walk Together Toowoomba' YouTube Series celebrating cultural diversity and acceptance in local schools. Supported by MDA and the Queensland Council of Unions.

You can also view the video by liking the Small Town Culture Facebook page where you can share it with your friends to really celebrate and promote the amazing learning at Holy Name.
