PUPIL FREE DAY
Monday October 20 is a pupil free day. The teachers and staff are all involved in professional development. Extend, afternoon care has informed me that the service will not operate.
The wonderful presence of Grandparents in the lives of our students is being celebrated at Holy Name on Friday October 24 with a Prayer Ceremony being presented by the Prep students. This will commence at 10 am and will be followed by a ‘shared morning tea’. All students are invited to bring their grandparents along for this special morning tea. If your family is able to attend the morning tea, please bring a plate to share.
Congratulations to our students who participated in the ICAS Mathematics Competition. Our results were outstanding and are a testament to the level of teaching and learning happening at Holy Name.

Our new Behaviour Policy introduced at the beginning of this year is based on a 4 levels – Golden, Orange, Blue and Red. It has been very successful in informing students of appropriate standard of behaviour and raising the standard of mutual respect and care for each other. The goal for students is to strive to be a “Golden Student” all term so as to be a part of the ‘Golden Activity’ at the end of the term. As this term is the final term of the year the Golden Activities are rather special. The Yr 6/7 class are invited to go to Dreamworld and the P-5 classes are being treated to a performance at the Empire Theatre. Please encourage and assist your child to make sensible choices about his / her behaviour as it is the aim at Holy Name to support all students to be ‘Golden Students’.
