Give your child the best opportunity to develop spiritually, academically and socially.


Holy Family Emerton is a warm and welcoming Catholic primary school built for the community, where students, parents and staff work together in partnership, enabling each child to unlock their full potential within a contemporary, faith-based learning environment.

We are committed to providing a comprehensive education for all of our students, including those who cannot afford to pay school fees. To help ensure this, we offer a number of additional support and extra-curricular programs to challenge, enable and empower students from all walks of life.



Wellbeing and Pastoral Care Programs

Holy Family Emerton is committed to developing students not only academically, but also socially and emotionally. To support this, we offer a range of additional wellbeing and pastoral care programs.

Our specialist Kindergarten orientation program begins mid-year and is designed to prepare preschoolers for school in the coming year, helping to ensure a smooth transition into a classroom environment.

In addition to this, the school offers specialised wellbeing and social skills programs designed to help students build confidence in their relationships.



Contemporary, Purpose-Built Learning Spaces

The learning spaces at Holy Family Emerton are designed as ‘hubs’ which allow for collaboration between students and teachers. In addition to this, each classroom is fitted-out with the latest technology designed to equip students with 21st-century learning skills.

Our specially designed learning spaces are fully air conditioned and were built with a student-focus to support high-quality learning and teaching.

In addition to our standard learning spaces, Holy Family Emerton offers ‘The Billabong’ - a specially designed, alternative space for students to learn at their own pace with the support of support teachers until they are comfortable returning to a mainstream classroom.



Exceptional Educators

Our teachers are passionate and creative, inspiring a love of learning in students every day.

They foster exploration and innovation, drawing on students’ passions, talents and learning styles to create an education that cultivates the whole child -- academically, socially, and emotionally.

In addition to our classroom teachers, Holy Family employs a number of specialist support teachers who work with students on their literacy and numeracy skills, as well as a school counsellor and additional support staff who make great learning possible.



A Vibrant Community

We are proud of our vibrant and diverse community at Holy Family Emerton which includes students and teachers from all walks of life.

The school has been designed in a ‘village’ style layout, with a central gathering place for recreational activities. In addition to this, all students are offered a free breakfast as part of our daily ‘Breakfast Club’ program which was designed to fuel each big day of learning!



Extra-curricular Opportunities

A Holy Family education allows students to discover their own talents and provides opportunities to fully explore these. We encourage our students to learn more than just the fundamentals, engaging them in a wide array of extra-curricular activities.

We run a number of Creative and Performing Arts programs, including a school Band program which is a part of our curriculum. In addition to this, a dance and drama program is offered to all students before school. Our students regularly participate in competitions, concerts and performances with other schools with the support of specialist creative arts teachers.

As well as our Creative Arts programs, Holy Family runs a free, two-day school holiday program designed to give students a “jump-start” into the next school term. This program is run before each new school term and incorporates a number of games and learning challenges designed to prepare students for the term ahead.
