Principal’s Welcome

When it comes to education, we all want what’s best for our children. Deciding what is best, however, can be a demanding and high-pressure task. After all, the seven years your child spends in primary school will play a pivotal role in the formation of their character and future. This is a time when their talents and interests will be developed. Holy Family Primary school has undergone major changes over the last ten years. Over the past year or so, inspiring and committed teachers, pre-school and long day-care centre onsite, a before and after school care and vacation program, and a massive school building programme, have enabled Holy Family Primary school to flourish.

The school complements the work of parents to promote the personal care and development of each student. Emphasis is placed on relating well with others, being considerate and contributing as a successful member of a team. Leadership is fostered through a peer support programme and a senior leadership programme. All children also learn the importance of acting responsibly and showing respect for one another and the environment in which they live.

Our school in Years 4, 5 and 6 thrive through the implementation of a 1:1 iPad program. The school offers opportunities for active participation in sports to suit every interest and talent. Morning fitness, inter-school competitions, carnivals, a whole school gymnastics, dance and swimming programme, are all encouraged. Holy Family school is a place that is constantly adapting to the changing needs of young people and their world. It is a place where all students can discover who they are and develop the self-confidence to take on new challenges. We are a school where students don’t have to fit in because the school fits around them. Our commitment is to unlock the talents of every individual student and help them on their way to a lifetime of self-discovery and fulfilment.
