Kathy Bliss, Principal
We have enjoyed a Term filled with joyful learning with our students achieving in so many aspects of the curriculum, from massive achievements in their daily classroom routines of Guided Reading Lessons and our Art of the Sentence program to establishing the automaticity of many of the ‘Teach Like a Champion’ techniques. Our visitors, the QLD Executive Directors and our very own Executive Director, Dr Pat Coughlan have showered much praise on the evident learning that they witnessed at Holy Name on recent visits. Dr Pat was our guest at the last assembly, presenting the ‘Footsteps of Jesus’ Award as well as addressing the students. He shared with me his impressions and insights after spending time with our students and being in our community that left me feeling extremely proud to be Principal of this wonderful little school. A lasting impression from Dr Pat’s visit will be him questioning the students regarding the meaning of the ‘Footsteps of Jesus’. The answer from a Yr 1 student will remain with us all. Dr Pat, “How do we know which are Jesus’s footsteps to follow?” Her reply, “They will have love on them.” It was a very special assembly to share with Dr Pat. We thank him for his presence in our community.
