When you walk into the gates of our school, I hope you feel a sense of welcome, belonging and family. We have beautiful grounds to run and play on, bright colourful classrooms to learn in, lots of resources to make learning fun and best of all talented, kind teachers.
We warmly invite you to take a tour of Holy Family Catholic Primary School Menai. Our students would love to show you our beautiful library, our exciting technology and happy children in every room. You can visit our music, art and drama rooms to see the creative and performing arts in action. Our students will tell you and show you how proud they are of our school and about the many opportunities they have had at Holy Family.
Holy Family is accredited as a SCS Newman Selective Gifted Education School. This means that we provide excellence in educational provision for gifted and talented students. We also have specialist teams of highly qualified staff to work with children who need support in their learning. We have high expectations for all our students, and we are committed to our role in helping them achieve and succeed.
When parents and carers choose a Catholic School for their child, they are choosing to be part of a system of schools which have gospel values, positive relationships and loving care at their centre. We value our partnerships with our parents as we walk together with your child in this important part of their life journey. We hope you choose our school of faith and learning.
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.
