Principal's Message

Welcome to the Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School, Carnes Hill, website.

Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School is a Catholic co-educational systemic school located in Carnes Hill in south western Sydney and is an integral part of the Holy Spirit Parish.

Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School is renowned for being a welcoming, inclusive, Christian community with a proud tradition of educational excellence. The school community embodies our motto “Enflame Our Hearts” – we are people, young and older, enflamed by the Spirit of Jesus in our lives and actions.

The school is committed to working in partnership with parents and the parish in the development of the whole child, to nurture students as they grow in faith and develop their full potential as life-long learners. We aim to do this in a caring, safe, secure and supportive environment with strong pastoral care programs based on wellbeing, justice, relationships and resilience.

Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School places a strong emphasis on the teaching of literacy and numeracy which is supported by a wide variety of contemporary technological resources. The school recognises the individuality of learners and particularly those from a language background other than English. The Newman Gifted Education program, specialist Creative Arts programs and a variety of sporting opportunities are also offered at the school.

We have a dedicated and professional teaching and support staff team who work collaboratively to ensure each child receives the best educational program possible.

I invite you to learn more about this wonderful school by exploring our website.

May God, the Holy Spirit, enflame your hearts!
