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
Leadership is a challenge and a wonderful opportunity for the leadership group of 2014. We had the pleasure of listening to the inspiring speeches of the Year 6 and Year 7 students who nominated for the position of 'House Leader'. The students and staff then voted for the leaders of the 3 sports houses. The results are as follows : Mort - Kaitlyn, Benjamin; Concanon - Tremae, Elijah; McCauley - Olivia, Emmanuel. Congratulations to these students who have pledged their honour as role models, mentors and nurturers of all students at Holy Name. They will be ably supported by all Yr 6 and Yr 7 students who are the 'School Leaders' of 2014.
On Wednesday 5th March, we celebrate the very important liturgical occasion in the Church calendar of Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent which takes us on the journey to Easter. All students will attend Mass in the Holy Name church commencing at 9am. We invite parents and caregivers to also attend this Mass.
BUILDING PARENT PATNERSHIPS
As announced at the ‘Meet & Greet’ evening, I will be offering a Parent Forum to introduce the work of Michael Grose on the broad subject of parent involvement with their child’s school and schooling. The first of these forums will be on Tuesday March 4 at 8.30am. Please indicate your attendance by contacting the school office.
