As I reflect on a very busy and productive Term 3 I am proud of the many successes for Holy Name students. They have excelled in The Arts through their inaugural participation in Eisteddfod and the Catholic Education Week Cultural Evening as well as their fantastic performance at our Art Show. In Athletics our students competed at Central Zone level while academically our students excelled showing a great improvement in NAPLAN, great results in the ICAS academic completions and ‘Honours’ at Optiminds . We have enjoyed a term of excellent student achievement across all areas of the curriculum. Well done Holy Name! Enjoy a happy and restful holiday with your families.

On Monday, September 14, our school will be hosting the Mini Vinnies Social Justice Day. These days provide students, and schools, with a chance to learn about social justice issues, connect to the wider church community and to share ideas on the many ‘good works’ each community already participates in. We will welcome 5 different schools with 70 students gracing
our beautiful school. Mini Vinnies Justice Days are a great opportunity for students to get involved in Vinnies Youth activities, be informed about current social justice issues, listen and interact with guest speakers from other Catholic Agencies, be provided with useful information and resources for use within their school and interact with other likeminded student leaders. Thanks to the Holy Name Mini Vinnies crew and Mrs Kerri-Ann Manthey for their hard work and dedication – enjoy the day children.

Honours for Holy Name!
Congratulations Optiminds Teams!!

2015 Extend Holy Name Primary School
Art Show

After hundreds of hours of hard work by many volunteers, led ably by Jodie Rigby as this year’s convenor, the Art Show has concluded as a massive success. Events like this need many things to make them work. These include hard working volunteers and organisers, sponsorship in the form of items for the raffles and serious cash donations, down to the little finishing touches on the day. Without all of these things it just would not happen. The amount of entries, number of school children and parents attending, prizes on offer, plentiful food and raffle prizes were just some of the many things commented on during the night.

Seeing the sponsors, both large and small, attending the show was wonderful. The surprise they exhibited when the scope of the fundraising their sponsorship enables was impossible for them to hide, and leads to the real reason behind all the hours of work to make the event happen is to raise funds for Holy Name Primary School, and our charity of choice, St. Vincent’s Hospital. All of this effort leads to over $13,000 being raised this year. A truly staggering amount of money that does the Holy Name community proud! So a big THANK YOU to our sponsors and to all those hard working people that make events like this happen.
