My name is Kathy Bliss and I have had the pleasure of leading the staff and students at Holy Name Primary School for 10 years.

At Holy Name we provide a learning environment that focuses on the development of the whole child - academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.

I believe that education is about investing in a child’s ability to progress towards meaningful goals and to equip them with life skills for the future.

As Principal I enjoy the interactions with families, students and the engagement with the broader Holy Name community. The joy on children’s faces as they grow as students makes my role deeply rewarding.

Growing up I had two wonderful role models in my Mum and my Aunt. My Mum was a teacher, and my Aunt was a Sister of Mercy, so teaching and the values of the Sisters of Mercy was a strong part of my upbringing. As a teacher, my passion was to make a difference in the lives of the children that I had the privilege to teach. As a principal, I am proud to lead a professional teaching team who are enthusiastic and dedicated in guiding our students to become lifelong learners.

My goal for every graduate of Holy Name is they are prepared and excited to start their high school journey and live each day as confident and caring young people. I look forward to partnering with parents to further our students' learning.

If you are considering Holy Name for your child’s primary schooling, I invite you to come and meet me personally, tour our school and see first-hand the excellent teaching and learning that happens at our school.

Warm regards

Kathy Bliss, Principal
