Students at Holy Family are offered a rich curriculum with opportunities to excel in all areas. Schooling in NSW is based on the mandatory NSW syllabuses for students from Kindergarten to Year 12. The syllabuses are developed and endorsed by News South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA).

At Holy Family, we include a focus on Religious Education, which is approved by the Bishop of Lismore. 

Subjects are called Key Learning Areas (KLAs). They are:

  • Mathematics
  • Science and Technology
  • English
  • Human Society and its Environments (History and Geography)
  • Personal Development Health and Physical Education
  • Creative Arts (Music, Dance, Drama and Visual Arts)
  • Religious Education

As a Catholic school, Religious Education is both a Key Learning Area and integral to our way of life. All students participate in the Catholic Religious Education Program, and an acknowledged willingness to commit to this mission and the ethos of a Catholic primary school is essential. 

You can visit the NESA website for more information on the NSW syllabuses.

Holy Family provides students with a safe and supportive learning environment with innovative learning experiences. We foster growth and achievement for every student and make adjustments to meet the individual needs of all students.
