Message From Our Principal

​​​​​​

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

On behalf of our school community, welcome to the Holy Family Primary School​ website.

The school was opened on August 17, 1928 by the Brigidine Sisters and the hard-working members of the Holy Family parish community.  We continue to honour the presence of the sisters as we strive to live out the Brigidine charism of Strength and Gentleness.

Our school values are:

  • We are created in the image and likeness of God.
  • We are reflective, innovative learners.
  • We are community.
     
    Our compassionate and dedicated staff embody these values as they seek to teach, challenge and transform the learners placed in our care.  They are committed to providing quality learning experiences as they support all students to realise their potential. Learners are known holistically and their spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs are catered for. 
     
    As an educational leader, I believe that all learners can succeed, but not in the same way and not on the same day.  I believe in having high expectations of all learners and supporting them to meet those expectations.

    We look forward to working in partnership with you, the community of Holy Family, as together we grow our learners.  We welcome parents as their child's first educators, to engage in the learning journey of the children.  There are plenty of opportunities for parents to engage with the school and with their child's learning.
     
    I hope you enjoy exploring our website as you develop your understanding of who we are as an educational community.  Questions are encouraged and we welcome any opportunity to show you around in person so please contact the office for a tour.
     ​​
    We ask God's blessing on us all as we journey together.
     
    God of the journey, be among us.  We ask this confident of your faithful kindness and in the name of Christ who journeyed before us, and the Spirit who lights the way.
