At the very heart of each Catholic school is a desire for the full flourishing of each student. At Holy Family School we support students to grow and develop across religious, physical, cognitive, emotional and social domains in order to become successful, animated learners who:

reflect on their own story and how this shapes who they are

respect diversity in language, culture and expressions of faith

are responsible for themselves, others and all of creation

are versatile, preserve and take risks

Are creative, curious and open-minded

At Holy Family School we support students to grow in virtue and to embrace a view of themselves and the world that leads to peace, justice, and the prospering of the whole of creation. It is a journey that is enlightened by faith, animated by love and leading to hope.

School curriculum at Holy Family School is purposeful. The curriculum clearly articulates the common set of knowledge and skills that are required by all students for lifelong learning, social development, and active and informed citizenship. All learners are entitled to a quality curriculum that has been designed to meet the learner’s needs and their local context.

At Holy Family School powerful teaching is planned and enacted by: contributing, exchanging, negotiating, communicating and acting collectively fostering students’ academic needs, interests, passions and spirituality using evidence to provide continuous forward-focused feedback based on learning intentions and success criteria using evidence to be transparent, inclusive and responsive to learners
