Our school motto: Praise, Love and Trust

Members of the Holy Family Parish School community are encouraged to live out the true mission of Jesus by recognising and acknowledging the sacredness and uniqueness of each individual.

The school motto recognises that we at Holy Family praise, love and trust God and one another.

Religious Education is an integral part of the curriculum at Holy Family. All children are expected to participate in the Religious Education Program and liturgical activities whilst attending Holy Family Parish School.

Holy Family Parish School provides a comprehensive education comprising all Key Learning Areas (KLAs) as mandated by the NSW Educational Standards Authority.

The following curriculum areas are taught at Holy Family:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science and Technology
  • Human Society and its Environment
  • Personal Development
  • Health and Physical Education
  • Creative & Practical Arts

Every student at Holy Family has the opportunity to be involved in sport and participate in Diocesan, Inter-diocesan and State Carnivals. Staff at Holy Family are committed and dedicated to ensuring that the needs of every student are catered for.

Reporting

At the beginning of each year, each stage sends out a parent information newsletter to inform parents about classroom practices and curriculum.

At the end of the second and fourth terms, an individual report is sent home with an invitation to parents to make an appointment for an interview to discuss the student’s progress and formulate goals for future progress.

The teachers are available to parents whenever the need arises unless of course, they are in class. The principal has an open door policy for parents, as well as staff and students, and only ask that parents make an appointment at particularly busy times.

Parental Involvement

Holy Family Parish School works in partnership with the parents to provide each student with the opportunities to reach his/her full potential.

As a result, parents are welcome in our school at all times. Many parents come into the school on a volunteer basis to help with reading programs, canteen, covering books, athletic and swimming carnivals, special occasions during Catholic Schools week, senior citizens assembly and morning tea.
