Touch Football and Gala Day Our Year 5 and 6 students attended the Catholic School's Gala day in Week 3. The students enjoyed a fabulous day learning new skills and meeting students from other schools across our diocese. We also wore our new netball bibs and caps provided by Queensland School's Sporting Grant along with our new touch footballs. Thank you Mr Dowden, Mrs Simiyu and Mrs Leggat for taking the students to this carnival.
Central Zone There are a large number of students from Years 3-6 attending the carnival. Please check the notice board for your event and event times. Your child should have received a permission slip. Please return to Mrs Coggan by Monday the 14th of August along with $7.
SPEECH and DRAMA EISTEDDFOD
It is with great with pride that I share the success of Holy Name students at the verse-speaking Eisteddfod. A large number of students from Year 1 to Year 6 have been working with Mrs Coggan to prepare and present their masterpieces at the verse-speaking Eisteddfod, achieving awards and personal best achievements. Of note is the success of our Year 1 entrants, Emily and Lindsay who placed 3rd and 1st respectfully. Adong, Year 5 was awarded a highly commended placing with an amazingly high score of 87. As reported by Mrs Coggan, the standard was extremely high and Holy Name students were extraordinary on their inaugural entries in the verse speaking. Congratulations to our talented students and to the extremely dedicated Mrs Coggan.
