MOTHER'S DAY
Holy Name students are enjoying purchasing gifts for their Mums, Carers and Grandmothers for this very special day. Many thanks to Carolyn for her great work in coordinating this most glamorous stall for the students.

The Mother’s Day Prayer Celebration is tomorrow, Friday 11th May at 8:45am. Miss Bowdler and the Yr 2 class are preparing this celebration for us. I have also heard ‘whispers’ that other classes have ‘special plans’ for our very valued mums. To all mothers, our very best wishes for a very special Mother's Day.

NAPLAN
Best wishes to all Year 3 and 5 students who will be participating in the National Assessment Program for Literacy and Numeracy next week. NAPLAN is an annual assessment for all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. It tests the types of skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life. The tests cover skills in reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation, and numeracy. The Holy Name staff have familiarised and prepared the students well for these tests. To help prepare your child for NAPLAN, please ensure they are well-rested, have a nutritious breakfast and encourage them to simply apply their best effort. 

EISTEDDFOD
Students from Yr3 to Yr6 will perform their prepared poems at the Eisteddfod on Monday (14th May) and Tuesday (15th May) next week. Congratulations to the students and Mrs Coggan for the dedication to excellence which is needed to perform at this level. Good luck and best wishes as you represent Holy Name with pride.

WE ARE AUSSIE KIDS!
Check out the super cool students from Holy Name School who have collaborated with Small Town Culture to create 'Aussie Kids', a production full of talent and personality. The music video is Episode 3 in the 'Walk Together Toowoomba' YouTube Series celebrating cultural diversity and acceptance in local schools. Supported by MDA and the Queensland Council of Unions.
