Holy Family Catholic Primary School opened in the hall at St. Patrick’s Sutherland in January 1986 with Sr Judith Baz as the founding principal. The school then moved to its present site in 1987, and was housed in demountables until permanent buildings were established.
Holy Family is a Catholic systemic primary school within the Archdiocese of Sydney. It was originally envisaged to be a three-stream, K–6, co-educational primary school but as the area developed, so did the school. It is now a 4 stream school with approximately 800 students. The motto, ‘Wisdom through Faith and Unity’, forms the basis of Holy Family’s vision and mission statements.
Holy Family’s traditional motto is ‘Wisdom through Faith and Unity’. We are a family united in our faith and our commitment to the children in our care. We work together to make our school a safe, inclusive school committed to excellence in learning.
