Community News

FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Community building is the cornerstone of educating the next generation. The key to a strong community is relationships. How do we establish relationships? We work from the 'heart' and with the 'heart'. A child will not learn unless he/she likes and respects those who are educating them. It is with this promise that all teachers lead the 'joyful learning journey' at Holy Name for 2017. The success of school events is a strong measure of the success of our relationship. We have enjoyed three very well attended school events - our very prayerful school mass for the induction for the school leaders, the Meet & Greet Information Evening & Disco and an extremely well attended P&F meeting. Well done Holy Name community! We are off to a flying start, where all this positive participation will ensure that student learning and achievement is ever improving.

SPORTS REPORT
Welcome to Week 3. We have had some very hot PE lessons on the oval practising our ball skills and learning T-Ball in preparation for the upcoming Gala day. The children have coped really well in the heat and I thank all of our parents/carers for ensuring your child has a hat, water bottle and applied sunscreen each Wednesday.

Swimming – we have 10 super swimmers representing our school this Thursday at the Catholic Schools Swimming Carnival at Milne Bay. As a school, we wish them all the best for a great swim and hope that they enjoy the day and do not forget to Slip Slop Slap! Thank you Mr Carter for accompanying our swimmers to the event.

Peak 2 Park Attention all Runners! As a school community, we would love to enter Peak2Park this year!
