Welcome to Week Three. The term is action-packed with sporting events of cross country and athletics, meaningful prayer celebrations for ANZAC Day and Mother’s Day and our focus on high quality teaching and learning as we guide our students to take NAPLAN testing ‘in their stride’.

In Term Two we focus on our Power of the Mind and Power of the Heart to engage Holy Name students in their learning and daily life at Holy Name. These attributes are recognised in the Student of the Week Awards and our Footsteps of Jesus Award. Family conversations about our ‘Powers’ will encourage our students to be successful learners and to know the loving face of Jesus in all that we do.

Power of the Mind:  Communicate

  • I can explain where I am at & where I am going with my learning.
  • I know my classroom is a safe place to share.
  • I can learn from challenges.
  • I can stay calm and focused.

Power of the Heart: Hospitality “The proof of love is deed”.

  • I can invite others to collaborate and play with me.
  • I can care for others when I see they need help.
  • I can welcome others with what we have.

NAPLAN
Best wishes to all Year 3 and 5 students who will be participating in the National Assessment Program for Literacy and Numeracy next week. NAPLAN is an annual assessment for all students in Years 3 and 5. It tests the types of skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life. The tests cover skills in reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation, and numeracy. The Holy Name staff have familiarised and prepared the students well for these tests. To help prepare your child for NAPLAN, please ensure they are well-rested, have a nutritious breakfast and encourage them to simply apply their best effort. 

PREP 2022
We invite you, our parent community to promote Holy Name as ‘the school of choice’ to continue to grow our enrolments.  Please spread the word about our wonderful school and encourage friends and neighbours to join our Holy Name community. Our numbers are growing for the Prep class of 2022 but there are still places available, but spaces do fill quickly at this point in the year. We also have some small classes throughout the school where additional enrolments could be accepted.
