Welcome to Term four. Our Term has begun in earnest. Staff, students, and families have returned with happy smiles and much enthusiasm to begin their engagement in the teaching and learning programs and community engagement at Holy Name. We have welcomed two new families to our Holy Name community to commence Term 4. Students in Prep M, Yrs1, 2, 3 and 5 welcomed a new class member.
Holy Name is committed to academic success and knowing the loving face of Jesus for all students. Our learning programs focus on our core business of reading, spelling, writing and numeracy. With the mastery of core skills, students can then achieve success when applying them across all curriculum areas. Term Four focus:
POWER OF THE MIND: REFLECTIVE LEARNER
POWER OF THE HEART: EXCELLENCE
Holy Name students are effective, assessment capable learners!
Holy Name teachers activate learning!
Holy Name leaders lead learning!
