On behalf of the school community, I invite you to take the time to look at the information available on this website. It is an excellent reflection of the interest and dedication the staff at Holy Name have towards the pupils and families of our fine school.
Kathy Bliss, Principal
Holy Name is abuzz with activity and enthusiasm. I have had the pleasure of sharing Morning Tea and engaging in rich conversation about the Early Years of Learning with the families wishing to enrol their child for Prep in 2014. I have also begun the Prep interviews for 2014. Please continue to welcome and encourage families with pre-school age children to enrol at Holy Name School.
Competence in literacy is the basis of all learning. During the pupil-free days the teachers were immersed in Literacy by an amazing, enthusiastic and vibrant literacy coach. All classes have embraced her methods and have been developing "Reading Stamina" with amazing results. All classes are also embarking on "Lightning Writing" to enhance student's speed and accuracy with letters and their formation. The excitement about reaching these goals is infectious among the students and teachers and is sure to increase student outcomes and their engagement in learning.
The P&F Association is an integral part of the Holy Name community. I am proud to announce that all executive positions are now filled for 2014. I welcome the new committee and look forward to working with them to provide up to date resources for the children. I invite all families to become involved in the P&F. It is a very rewarding experience to contribute to functions and activities that are going to benefit your child.
The students participated in the Annual cross Country competition with much effort and enthusiasm. Congratulations to the winners and place getters. Many thanks to staff and parents who organised and assisted with this event.
The Annual Holy Name School Athletics Carnival will be held on Friday 14th June. Parent helpers will be needed on the day in both the Tuckshop and on the field, as well as coming along to support your child in their participation. A great day will be had by all I am sure!
