HOLY FAMILY PRIMARY
Holy Family Primary is a school that is constantly adapting to the learning needs of its children and offers a rich learning environment.
Apple TVs have been installed in each of the grades, as well as in the library and Learning Studio. Students actively access iPads, Chromebooks and laptop computers in every classroom to facilitate individual learning programs and independent research.
Holy Family Primary students excel in the creative arts and are well served by a spacious hall, which is used for dance and drama instruction, as a rehearsal and performance space, for indoor sports, assemblies and for a variety of community activities.
Air conditioning is provided throughout the school for year-round comfort and optimal learning conditions. Our school canteen provides a healthy recess and lunch menu each school day.
Holy Family Primary School is proud of its Josephite traditions and follows the credo of Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop: 'Never see a need without doing something about it'. With this as the school goal, the school aims to reach out to others through social justice initiatives. A new initiative in 2013 was the SVDP Winter Sleep Out in the school hall for Year 6 students, raising funds for homelessness through sponsorship.
2017 marked the beginning of a new era as the former St Joseph’s Convent came back to life as the House of Welcome, a support service for refugees and asylum seekers operated by St Francis Social Services. Also in 2017, work commenced on transforming the old parish bingo room under the school hall into a state-of-the-art Learning Studio equipped to meet the needs of children with physical, intellectual and learning disabilities.
In the 21st Century, Holy Family Primary is known as a place that nurtures lifelong learning in students, parents and staff, and we encourage the pursuit of excellence in all areas of education according to each child's unique talents and needs. It is hoped that graduates of Holy Family Primary are capable of adapting to a world of change and that they are empowered to bring about a spirit of faith and hope for the future, as they continue to live out our school motto In Christ We Live, Love and Learn.
2018 marked the 80th birthday of Holy Family Primary School, and the continuation of generations of dedicated work to serve the mission of Catholic Education in the Granville area.
