LITERACY EXPERTISE AT HOLY NAME
Our Literacy Coach, Mrs Ehmer has been observing and coaching the teachers as they teach their literacy lessons this week. She is full of praise for the teachers at Holy Name commenting on their high level of expertise, talent and dedication. Our teachers are continually adjusting and tweaking their lessons and aim for ‘best practice’ at all times. Our Senior Education Officer from TCEO, Mrs Suzanne Cavanagh, recommends Holy Name teachers to be viewed for best practice. We have hosted other Catholic Schools to share the great teaching and learning that is happening in your child’s classroom. Please take the opportunity to congratulate and thank your child’s teacher as they too enjoy being recognised for their excellent work.

FOOTSTEPS DANCE DISCO
Don’t forget our Footsteps Dance Presentation and Disco will be held on Friday, 29 May, starting at 5:00pm. All students must attend this event must have a parent / guardian attend the event with them. I am looking forward to seeing the student’s dance presentations and many families to support the children. They love to share their efforts with their families.

P & F NEWS

Mother’s Day Stall Thank you
Mother’s Day is over for another year! I hope that everyone had a great day and that you enjoyed the gifts purchased by children at the stall. My thanks to all the helpers, and to every family who so generously donated items to the stall. We raised approximately $1,400. Thank you for your support, Marilyn Meacle – Co-ordinator.

Calling for Sponsors for the 2015 Holy Name Art Show! The Art Show committee has started putting together the first stages of the 2015 Holy Name Art Show. One of these tasks is a list of Sponsors that help make this night the success it is.

Last year we were able to raise in excess of $13,000 from sponsorship which then purchased great resources for the school, mainly in the form of new IT equipment. This amount was generated from both monetary donations and prize donations for the multi-draw raffle. If you have a business or know of any businesses that would be able to donate either money or prizes please leave their contact details at the school office and an invitation letter will be sent out asking for their contribution.
