FAREWELL TO TERM 2!
We have journeyed the crisis and challenges of this unique term together, supporting each facet of our community as the effects of the Government restrictions altered and changed our comfortable ‘normal’. It is with pride that I witness the resilience and persistence as our students adapted to all the new conditions as we rolled them out. From our courageous Prep students to our fabulous school leaders, they took ‘change’ in their stride and continued to focus on the real work of learning and demonstrating strong growth in their academic and social and spiritual achievements. Congratulations to our parents who took on the ‘learning at home’ challenge and excelled in supporting, encouraging, and teaching their child/ren with most students returning to school demonstrating growth and improvement in concepts covered. Thank you one and all for the great spirit of excellence and commitment to successful learning.
ENROLLING AT HOLY NAME
I am conducting interviews for the Prep Class of 2021. It is an extremely enjoyable experience to welcome new families to Holy Name and to meet the siblings of our existing students, welcoming them to Holy Name. Our Prep cohort for 2021 is filling up and we are close to reaching capacity. If you have friends or family that have a child for Prep 2021, please bring them to our wonderful school. As well as taking enrolments for Prep, I am also interviewing for the other class groups. We have limited places available in most class groups, so I ask families to promote Holy Name as ‘the preferred school’. The ‘TCS Parent Engagement Brochure’ is an integral part of our enrolment process. At enrolment, parents will be required to commit to the standards of expectation outlined in the brochure. The Parent Engagement Charter has been endorsed by our School Board and has been adopted as best practice.
