Staff Spirituality

Staff Zone

At Holy Family Catholic Primary School, we believe the spiritual growth of our staff is an important part of Catholic education, as staff lead the spiritual growth of students. As a Catholic school, we support our teachers and support staff to deepen their faith and connection with God.

All school staff are encouraged to develop their faith and understanding. They are provided with opportunities such as:

  • Annual Staff Spirituality Days, under the guidance of Bishop Gregory Homeming
  • An annual whole school discipleship retreat
  • Weekly staff prayer
  • Weekly whole school prayer celebrations at assembly
  • Daily class prayer and reflections
  • Spirituality retreats for each of the Sacraments received by students.

Through prayer, purpose and passion, staff are supported in their calling to enable each student to achieve the ‘fullness of life’ (John 10:10).
