HOLY NAME ART SHOW
Organising and planning for The Annual Art Show is well under way. The students have all completed their art work and the entries are submitted from our other Catholic Schools. There is still much work to be done leading up to the event as well as at the Art Show itself. Please add your name to the roster, volunteer and contribute to this great event. It is the major fund raiser for Holy Name ably run by the P&F committee. Mark this date on your calendar as all families are asked to attend this school event. Bring along friends and grandparents. The students are involved with a Verse Speaking Choir by the Yr 4 students and the School Choir presenting 2 songs.
Holy Name is celebrating Book Week from Monday, September 1 to Friday September 5.

Parents are invited to join in with these celebrations for Book Week.

ZONE ATHLETICS CARNIVAL
Congratulations to all students who competed at the Zone Athletics carnival last week. Not only did our students display great sportsmanship but the reports well behaved and well-mannered Holy Name students flooded in. Five of our students were selected to compete at the Darling Downs Athletics Trials. This is a great achievement. Well done Nathanael, Deng, Maker, Emmanuel and Jeremiah. Congratulations and thank you to Mr Red for his organisation of the sport. He is continuing to train these students on Thursday afternoon.
Congratulations to Kundai, TJ, Lachlan and Jessica who made their Confirmation in front of the Holy Name congregation last Sunday. The Most Reverend Bishop Robert McGuckin was very impressed with these children and commented on how well they were prepared to accept this important step on their faith journey. I would like to express my gratitude to the sponsors, parents and Fr. Ray who worked diligently to prepare these children for this Blessed Sacrament.
Over the coming weeks children who have been baptised in a Catholic church and are in either grade 3 or 4, will receive a letter outlining that it is your turn to participate in the preparation of First Reconciliation.
If you are interested in this program please read the letter or come in and see me. I will be able to support you with any needs you may have.
