Community News

The September or spring school holiday break is almost upon us. Term 3 has continued to provide challenges in adapting to our new restrictions and expectations. Our community has been supportive and extremely compliant and understanding, thus allowing us to provide a safe learning and work environment for staff and students. Thank you!

We have enjoyed a busy and productive term of learning at Holy Name. Our students have excelled in their learning, showing much growth and improvement in the core areas of writing, spelling, reading and numeracy.  Though official NAPLAN did not occur, our internal program for the Yr3 and Yr5 class continued, providing very useful data and feedback on student growth and achievement in the core skills of the Australian Curriculum.  Behind the successes and achievements of our students are active, energetic and generous people. Our expert and dedicated teachers, our parents and of course our volunteers who all give generously of their time and expertise to grow a culture of deep learning and to valuing education, ensures the Holy Name students are capable and successful learners. Do visit our Holy Name Facebook page to like / share and celebrate the many rich and varied learning experiences our students enjoy.

The term will finish with a very action-packed Week 10. Students will be involved in many events. These events are still internal due to the ongoing uncertainty on the safety of full community involvement.

The students will enjoy:

  • Yr4 Gala Day – Soccer (Tuesday)
  • Wellness Wednesday (Wednesday)
  • Cross Country (Wednesday)
  • Book Week Parade (Thursday)
  • Mercy Day Prayer Celebration & Final Assembly (Thursday
  • Pupil-free Day (Friday)

I would like to take this opportunity to say congratulations and thank you to all for your support of Holy Name as we focused on student learning and growth in student achievement as we navigated our way through a changed landscape for our Holy Name community, adapting to the new rules and laws designed to protect all  from the world pandemic that has shaped 2020 thus far. May God’s richest blessings be with our Holy Name families, students and staff as they enjoy a restful, happy and safe holiday.

WELLNESS WEDNESDAY - BOOK WEEK
The idea that books can help make people feel better has long been entrenched in human history. The ancient Greeks placed an inscription above a library entrance calling it a ‘place of healing for the soul.’ This term our ‘Wellness’ activity will coincide with Holy Name Book Week (Week Ten). On Wednesday 16 September, class groups will not only participate in a service activity, they will take time out to enjoy a good book – providing a healthy distraction from day to day surrounds and a chance to relax.
