PROJECT COMPASSION 2015 IS "FOOD FOR LIFE"
Last week the season of Lent began with Ash Wednesday. Our school celebrated this important occasion by attending Mass. The ashes that were marked on our forehead in the sign of the cross were to remind us to try and make a new beginning during Lent – whether that was to be more helpful at home, to try harder at school or to do something more for others. Ash Wednesday also marked the beginning of the annual Caritas Australia Project Compassion Appeal. Donations to Project Compassion allow Caritas Australia, the Catholic Agency for International Aid and Development, to work with local communities around the world to alleviate poverty, hunger, oppression and injustice. Each classroom has a Project Compassion box and children are encouraged to support this during Lent. Please put your compassion into action this Lent by supporting the 2015 Project Compassion Appeal – Food for Life. www.caritas.org.au

Peak2Park Fun RunPEAK2PARK FUN RUN
Active children result in increased attention and improved learning outcomes. At Holy Name we are focused on increasing the daily level of physical activity for our students in order to stimulate their learning capacity. To support this initiative Mrs Manthey has promoted and encouraged Holy Name families to participate in the Annual Peak2Park fun run / walk. We have had a great response and our families will represent Holy Name on Sunday. Good luck to all of our families participating in the annual Peak2Park fun run/walk, this Sunday 1st March 2015.

PARENTS & FRIENDS ASSOCIATION
The P&F is an integral part of our school. The Annual General Meeting is on Tuesday, 10th March commencing at 6pm. At this meeting the executive positions will be filled for 2015. Some of our executive will be stepping down as they have completed two or more years in their role while others will or may continue. Please come to this meeting, firstly to support the learning of your child at Holy Name and secondly to support, get to know and work with this wonderful group of people who raise the extra dollars to provide up to date resources and extra-curricular activities for each and every child at Holy Name School.

P&F CADBURY FUNDRAISER
As part of our plan to improve facilities and resources for Holy Name Primary School we are running a fantastic Cadbury® Fundraiser Drive. I am pleased to announce that for this drive we have Cadbury® Chocolates for sale. Selling for $2 each, this represents excellent value to the buyer and our profits will go to P&F Fundraising.

If all chocolates are sold this has the capacity to raise $3,300.00 to be spent on school items such as: IPads and other computer devices, Electronic whiteboards, Excursions, Sports equipment and Classroom upgrades. Please support this activity!
