Pupil Free Day 17th OctoberPUPIL FREE DAY
Monday 17th October is a Pupil Free Day. The teachers and staff are all involved in professional development. Extend, Outside School Hours Care has informed me that the service will operate on this day at Mater Dei Primary School.

The wonderful presence of Grandparents in the lives of our students will be celebrated at Holy Name on Friday, 21st October, with a Prayer Ceremony being presented by the Prep students. This will commence at 8:30am and will be followed by a 'shared morning tea'. All students have invited their grandparents. Those families that have grandparents attending are asked to bring a 'shared plate' for morning tea. These grandparents and families will then share a special morning tea with their grandchildren. If your family is able to attend the morning tea, please bring a plate to share.

SOCKTOBER Friday 21st – Gold Coin Donation
Socktober 21st OctoberWhat is Socktober? Socktober is an initiative of Catholic Mission and one way which our school can fundraise is by hosting a crazy sock day. The sock it to something concept is an Australian expression that means to fight or strike out at against something. We want the community of Holy Name to help us 'Sock It' to poverty and homelessness this 'Socktober'. Please come dressed in your craziest, weirdness, brightest, colourful or favourite socks on Friday 21st October and make a cold coin donation to Catholic Mission.

Please join us on Friday 11th November, for our Remembrance Day Prayer Celebration hosted by Mr Dowden and the Year 5 class. This is a time of prayer and a chance to remember those who have fallen, giving the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Lest We Forget. A time will be announced at a later date.

PREP 2017
If you child is due to commence Prep in 2017 and you have not enrolled, please collect an enrolment form from the front office. Spaces are filling quickly; we would be very disappointed if anyone should miss out on a place!
