Our Motto:  Life to the Full in Christ 

As a Catholic school, Holy Family is a Christ-centred community built on a commitment to the Gospel. We seek to serve the Gospel by accompanying young people in such a way that they may experience ‘Life to the Full in Christ’’ in learning and living well.


Enabling our students to experience the fullness of life (John 10:10).

At Holy Family, we provide a quality faith-filled education enabling students to be inspired to grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.


Holy Family Catholic Primary School is a Christ-centred learning community. Through the promotion of wellbeing, quality teaching and engaging in a meaningful curriculum, learners are inspired and challenged to achieve their personal best. Children are empowered to become collaborative lifelong learners prepared to make a positive difference in an ever changing world.
