Mrs Caroline Galea 

Dear Parents,  


We have finally made it to the end of the year!  It has been a really busy year, but I am grateful for the fact that we have remained open all year.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support throughout the year.  I am very fortunate to work at Holy Name and with its community and I look forward to working with many of you again next year.

I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a safe New Year.


Thank You

I would like to thank the Holy Name staff for their dedication and commitment to the school community and particularly the children in their care. We would also like to thank all our outgoing members of staff for their hard work while at Holy Name. 

We will be saying goodbye to the following members of staff:
