FROM YOUR PRINCIPAL
This week we welcomed our visitors from Japan. The Year Four students and Mrs Menyweather have been perfect
hosts welcoming the Japanese students and teachers, sharing many joyful learning experiences from the perspective
of both the Japanese and Australian cultures. Such authentic opportunities and learning experiences offered to our
students don’t just happen but do require a commitment well beyond the norm. On behalf of Holy Name Community,
a special thank you to Mrs Menyweather, Yearr 4 teacher and daily host; Mrs Jodi Mills-Usami, parent of Holy Name
and coordinator of the Japanese Sakae Cho Group for preparing and donating the food for the welcome and farewell
parties; Mrs Pip Walters, Holy Name Uniform Shop convenor for volunteering to organise the gifts for the students,
teachers and Japanese school. Well done and thank you to all!
