Principal's Message

Welcome to the Holy Spirit Primary, Catholic School website!

I hope is that this website will provide you with a snapshot of the strength of our school as a dynamic, innovative, Catholic learning community.

Our school is embedded in a Catholic learning community based on welcome, faith and family. We are the newest Catholic primary school in the Archdiocese of Sydney, purposely built for contemporary learning and wonderful open grassy spaces where the students have ample opportunity to run, be free and just be children.

Naturally our school has a special devotion to the Holy Spirit, present and real in our lives. The Holy Spirit, whom in John’s gospel is called the Advocate, the one who walks with us. Therefore, the students are constantly reminded that Christ is with them as they learn in a community embedded in ritual, prayer, sacred music, signs, symbols and our Catholic tradition. This makes our teaching a distinctly Catholic pedagogy, the way of the Holy Spirit; our true purpose and ministry as Catholic educators.

Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School embraces a learning platform where all believe that:

  • Optimum learning occurs when the learner understands the learning process and knows about themselves as a learner.
  • Learning occurs at different rates and in different ways.
  • Learning should be relevant to life in a contemporary society.
  • The learner is interactive in the process and organization of learning.
  • Responsibility for learning is owned and shared by the community.
  • Best learning occurs in relationships based on trust, support, respect and encouragement.
  • Learning is effective when the learning space is conducive to a variety of learning styles.
  • The learner takes responsibility for their own learning.
  • Learning should be fun, positive and celebrated.
  • All children have equal rights to access the curriculum.
  • The school with the Parish needs to foster an obvious sense of Catholic community, identifiable by its Christian actions.
  • Celebration must be a vital aspect of our school culture.
  • The school is an active participant in the evangelizing mission of the Church.

This is the roadmap for our school learning journey. 

Parents seeking enrolment for Kindergarten 2019 are invited to come for a tour around the school during Catholic Schools Week - March 6th and 7th at 3:30pm. Enrolment packages will be available at the school office.

Please contact us either by phone or through email, if you would like to know more about our school. 

Yours sincerely,
Lisa Wahab
