CARER-FRIENDLY BUSINESS AWARD 2014
Congratulations to the Holy Name community! Last week I was honoured to accept an award on behalf of Holy Name School for the “Carer-Friendly Business Award 2014”. Holy Name was the regional winner of the ‘Great Service Carer-Friendly Business Award”. Traditionally, Great Service is for the corporate sector, but not directly associated with the health and community care services (e.g. banks, mechanics, florists, pharmacies, doctors). There were 12 nominations for this award, so we feel exceptionally privileged to have received this award. Our school stood out from the other nominees, being recognised for the endeavours the school community places on being supportive and caring to all families.
WELCOME DAY for 2015
On Thursday, November 27 we will welcome the Prep class of 2015 along with their families. The new preppies will enjoy a morning becoming familiar with their classroom and teacher. Their parents enjoy an information and social morning, being greeted and addressed by the many facets of school life such as the P&F President, the Board Chairperson, the Uniform Shop Coordinator, Extend Afterschool Care and existing parents. The existing students of Holy Name will move to their new teacher for a ‘getting to know each other’ session. This is a new concept for Holy Name which will ensure a smooth start to 2015. Our senior students who are departing will have a variety of roles which will be allocated nearer to the day.
YEAR 4 MASS
The year four Mass in our classroom was a great success. Many parishioners celebrated the Eucharist with parents and children and interacted with the children, building bonds between Parish and School. Father explained all of the vestments he wears as he prepared to celebrate the Mass. This was informative and interesting. Father also explained to us the significance of the marble tile that is always on the altar. The children did their readings with confidence and sang beautifully.
REMEMBRANCE DAY LITURGY
Please join us on Tuesday 11th November, at 11:00am for our Remembrance Day Prayer Celebration hosted by Mr Dowden and the Year 5/6 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.
