Building Opportunities for Learning Together

Welcome! I hope you enjoy navigating through our website and discovering what our fantastic school has to offer.

Holy Spirit Primary School is a systemic catholic school located in North Ryde. It was established in 1958 with 104 students and staffed by the Sisters of Mercy (North Sydney Congregation). It was known as "Spiritus Sanctus" until 1990. At present, our enrolment is over 530 students across Kindergarten to Year 6. We are part of the Holy Spirit Parish and work very closely with our neighbouring secondary catholic schools.

Our school is blessed with enthusiastic and committed teachers who work collaboratively to ensure students feel safe and secure in their learning environment. A wide variety of activities provide students with opportunities to develop their particular skills and talents. We strive to value our children as individuals - each with their own unique personality. We value relationships and endeavour to develop strong partnerships with parents and students by being available and approachable.

We have much to offer at Holy Spirit, our curriculum is well balanced with high quality teaching/learning programs across all Key Learning Areas and Religious Education. We provide a range of specialist areas such as sport, martial arts, swimming, gymnastics, dance and music. We also run coding clubs, chess, passive play, choir, Mini Vinnies, prayer and environmental groups at lunchtime for students. Senior students have many opportunities to develop their leadership skills through involvement in Leadership Programs, Liturgy Committee, Friendship Patrol and the Kinder Buddy Program.

Digital technologies are utilised in all classes to enhance and support learning. Currently students in Years 4-6 bring their own digital device (iPad) to assist in engaging them in personalised learning.

There is a strong sense of partnership between staff, parents and parish. The students participate in the Parish Sacramental Program to receive Sacraments; we attend parish masses to celebrate feast days and other liturgical celebrations throughout the year as well as attending weekly class masses.

As the principal, I am very excited about leading this thriving community. Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School is a dynamic place to be. We welcome all enquiries regarding our great school.

Kind Regards,

Jo Fox
