THE EASTER STORY
The students will perform a dramatization of the ‘Easter Story’ in the MEAC on Holy Thursday at 1.30pm. We invite our parents, grandparents, parishioners and friends of Holy Name to come along and enjoy this special presentation. Thank you to all who worked together to give the students this wonderful experience of performing to an audience. Mrs Coggan, Mr Red and the class teachers will be very proud of this great presentation.
YEAR 5 GOLD RUSH EXCURSION
We all had a fantastic time at the Gold Rush excursion last week. The students of the Year 5 room were able to witness, firsthand, this amazing time in our history. The students gathered lots of information to aid them in their historical studies for this term. Below are some photos that were taken while we were there.

Mother’s Day Stall:
Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching. It is a beautiful tradition that encourages
children to give thanks, and show appreciation for their mothers.
I would like to invite Holy Name families to support our annual Mother’s Day Stall.
You can do this by donating items such as soaps, cosmetics, candles, cups, homemade
gifts, chocolates etc.,
Children love to buy gifts from the Stall. It’s their chance to buy something special for
Mum, and don’t forget Grandmothers too!!
Please leave items at the school office as soon as possible to allow time for them to be
wrapped and priced.
The Mother’s Day Stall will be held on the 6th, 7th and 8th May.
Marilyn Meacle, Mother’s Day Stall Coordinator and your friendly School Crossing Supervisor

P & F Cadbury Fundraiser
I am thrilled to announce that our Cadbury ® Fundraiser drive has been a huge success! Through your hard work we were
able to raise so far $1200 for Holy Name.
A tremendous effort – we can be very proud of what we’ve achieved. However there are still approx 35 boxes that are still
outstanding. Those who have not returned their money or unsold boxes please do so as soon as possible. This amount
will add an extra $2100 to the amount raised.
We also have some boxes to sell due to part boxes being returned, so if you would like to help to sell the last few please let
Kim know in the office.
I would like to thank you for all your efforts, it was wonderful to see the spirit and
enthusiasm that was displayed in supporting our school community.
Thank you once again.
