HOLY NAME CHRISTMAS CONCERT and P&F CHRISTMAS PARTY – Thursday 28th November
The Christmas Musical is on Thursday, November 28 commencing at 6pm. All students are well prepared under the expert guidance of Mrs Coggan and Mrs Hughes. Our staff have worked together as a team, from organizing costumes and props to the dedicated practises of all parts to ensure a top performance by our students. This is true team efficacy in action. Well done to the entire staff of Holy Name. All students from Prep to Yr 6 have a part in the play and I assure you they will enjoy performing for you, their parents and families. Students are to meet their teachers in the hall (MEAC) at 5.45pm.  The hall will be locked until 6pm. I ask parents to abide by the request ‘not to enter the hall until the doors are open at 6pm.’ This is necessary as the props, sound, stage is all set up in readiness to begin the play. All families are encouraged and invited to be here to make this a great community event for Holy Name. Our community spirit can only grow through each family getting to know each other.

P&F CHRISTMAS PARTY
The P&F will host their annual Christmas BBQ and refreshments commencing at 5pm to provide an evening of family dinner and fun as we all enjoy the Christmas Play. The P&F would appreciate many helpers to set up, serve and pack-up as the evening ends. Families, grandparents and friends are all invited to enjoy this wonderful evening.
