As Deputy Principal of Holy Family Catholic School I would like to welcome everyone to Term 3 of the school year. This term we have welcomed over 40 new students to our school and have started 2 new Reception classes. This term we will continue our mission in the areas of Catholic Identity, Evolving Pedagogy and Ecological Conversion. The new Curiosity space has enabled a greater depth of learning in Literacy and will provide opportunities for integration in all learning areas.
I’d like to welcome all new and existing families to the 2021 school year!
The community and especially the students have been really excited about the new Basketball and Netball courts that the school has built in Grevillea Reserve. Already the students have enjoyed using this space during Physical Education, fitness and break times.
The new school library is coming along with the building starting to take shape.
In 2021 our school will continue to focus on the importance of Literacy with particular focus towards Reading and Writing development.
I’m looking forward to continuing to assist all students to reach their learning potential and working with families in our school.
How exciting is it to be back!!!
I’d like to welcome all our new and existing families and students to Holy Family in 2020!
On the weekend we participated in two special events.
The first event was last Saturday we had a Fish Farm fundraiser at Aggies Aquariums to raise funds for our MUDLA.
The second event was the Biannual Salisbury Parish Multicultural Carnival where we organised Soccer matches for our Year 2, Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 students. The whole day was a huge success in bringing together the community for a great purpose.
Over the past year at Holy Family we have been working as a Global Action Team with Apple Distinguished schools in America and Mexico.
As a result of this our students have been working together and sharing their learning with each other.
Recently, the two American schools in the group from Arizona and Missouri created presentations for our students on their climate and what they have been learning about.
Our students were very grateful to receive these presentations that were created for us.
The Holy Family students are now working on adding their own learning to share with the schools in America.
At Holy Family Catholic School we have three house groups:
The Saint Mary Mackillop House
The Pope John Paul II House
The Saint Vincent DePaul House
Each of the houses are made of classes who will work together on various aspects of mission.
We look forward to sharing more learning and experiences!
I’d like to welcome all students, staff and families in our learning community back for the 2019 school year.
I’d especially like to welcome our many new students who have seamlessly transitioned into our school.
It has been great to hear all the wonderful stories from the new students about how they have made new friends, enjoyed the learning opportunities and the resources available to extend their learning.
The teachers have done and fantastic job of setting up the learning spaces with flexibility, engagement and curiosity in mind.
On Sunday February 11th as a part of the Salisbury Parish Multicultural Carnival the Year 2 and 3 students participated in a Soccer match against St Augustines.
The two games were extremely successful with a range of goals scored and great teamwork on display.
I’d like the thank the Mr Stramare who coached and the parents who supported this event.
Yesterday a group of 30 students nominated to visit Fluid Solar House.
The group was shown around the amazing three story commercial building which is ecologically friendly and runs ‘off the grid’ to support its own electricity needs.
The children had many ideas regarding the engineering aspects of the building and came up with ideas to make our school more ecologically friendly. One idea was to get a bicycle which could create energy to charge a laptop.
Today the whole school participated in ‘Outdoor Classroom Day’ which is a global event for children around the world to learn in the outside environments. Some of the activities the students participated in included:
Fishing and Angling
