Holy Family Primary is a great place for students to grow in faith and learning.

Led by caring staff committed to sharing the Catholic faith with students in partnership with families, our welcoming community supports students and staff to thrive. We value each student as an individual and share the values of the Gospel to help them discover the hope that is within and to experience a meaningful and flourishing life.

Students in our school come from a variety of religious backgrounds and beliefs - a student will not feel out of place if they do not share the Catholic faith.

Sharing our Catholic tradition

We ensure that students come to know Jesus Christ through the promotion of Catholic tradition and teaching. Faith experiences are woven throughout the life of the school and school values, and are realised within the Religious Education program, liturgy, prayer, reflection, religious symbolism, Feast Days and social justice activities to reach out to those most in need. Our school community prays the Angelus (traditional midday prayer) together each day. In partnership with our local parish, there are also many chances to attend Mass.

The school has a strong relationship with the local parish. This includes coming together for special celebrations and to support students to grow in faith.

Celebrating our faith

We place great importance on the contribution of visual and performing arts to the liturgical life of our school. Live music, singing, drama, symbols, visual art works and liturgical movement are incorporated into celebrations, providing meaningful and relevant faith experiences for young people.

Social justice initiatives

Social justice is important to our school community. Our outreach programs are vibrant and responsive to community need. Social justice programs assist in connecting our community to local, national and global needs and play an important part in the formation of each community member of Holy Family Primary. These opportunities assist in helping others to become loving, caring, generous and active citizens of our world, leading always with Christ in mind.

Outreach projects have included the OzHarvest Hamper Program, Project Compassion, Christmas Hamper Program, and Mission Week Awareness for Thailand Faith In Action Team (FIAT).

Our reconciliation strategy

Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta are at the beginning of an important journey, endeavouring to make significant contributions to reconciliation within the community, locally and nationally.

Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese (CSPD) recently launched its first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). We will be guided by the CSDP RAP as we work to embed practices that further support members of our learning community who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, engage meaningfully and respectfully with members of the local Aboriginal community, and make contributions to the national journey towards reconciliation.
