Community News

FROM YOUR PRINCIPAL
A very warm welcome to Term 2. I trust that our community had a joyous Easter with family and friends. It is a delight to be greeted by the enthusiastic, happy students of Holy Name as they return to join friends and be challenged by another term of 'joyful learning'. All classes wrote a 'learning promise' to begin the school year. I have chosen the Year 5 promise to share with you the thoughts of Holy Name students: 'We are joyful, caring learners who always work hard to achieve our best. In Year 5 we journey together because everyone belongs.'

Technology at Holy NameNEW TECHNOLOGY AT HOLY NAME!
There are two very excited classes and teachers at Holy Name! They are looking forward to discovering the great learning opportunities that their new 'big screen' and Apple TV technology will bring to the Yr 1 and Yr 4 classrooms. We are very lucky to have Miss Morgan on our staff as she has experience from her previous school in Sydney Catholic Dioceses with using this technology in the classroom.

THE ARTS AT HOLY NAME
Dance Program:
We welcome new dance company to Holy Name. This year we have engaged 'Dance Fever' to present a nine-week dance program to all classes. This will culminate in a Dance Presentation / Dance Evening with parents on Friday 10th June. The students will have perfected many great dance moves to show off to their parents!

Sing Out: The choir students will enjoy the experience of the 'Sing Out' program. Mrs Coggan will have the details of this event for the students. The culminating date is 14th June. Parents please make note of this date.

Fun with Josh Arnold: Holy Name is one of 16 Toowoomba schools to be invited to participate in a musical spectacular directed by Josh Arnold. The theme is 'Diversity and Acceptance'. Each school will do its own production using their own concepts and narrative. The program culminates with a community 'Walk Together' event at the end of October this year. Mrs Coggan is coordinating Holy Name's part in this event. This will begin in earnest this term with song writing, recording and filming. What an awesome experience for Holy Name students! Mrs Coggan will be distributing information about the student's involvement as it becomes available.

YEAR 4
Welcome back to Term 2! We are very excited about our new Apple TV in our room, this is an interactive educational tool that will allow our students to work on some exciting activities and has provided us with so much more space! In mathematics this week we have been learning about tessellating shapes, that is, shapes that repeat to make a pattern like tiles in a bathroom. We have a very busy term ahead of us, it is important that we remember to be kind to each other and respectful to our teachers at all times. Keep up the great work Year 4!
