Holy Family Primary School, Mount Waverley

Holy-Family-School-05 400pxThe Holy Family School community has much to celebrate. A culture exists in which our community values and affirms each individual, with students encouraged to work to their full potential and to build relationships of respect, trust and acceptance. Our staff is a highly professional team of educators who continually strive for best practice, innovation and creativity. They are committed to ongoing learning, modelling this culture of learning to the children within their care. We offer a broad based inclusive curriculum with a range of opportunities and experiences that foster the growth of the whole student. We celebrate the unity between the parish and school and encourage the parent as the first educator to become active participants in both. Our goal is to educate the whole child in an environment of love and acceptance based in the teachings of Jesus.


We offer a comprehensive curriculum with a high priority given to literacy and numeracy. Our teachers continually seek innovative opportunities for each student to be reflective, imaginative and active in their learning. We promote a Holy-Family-School-03 400pxculture of inquiry based learning ensuring that all students gain the knowledge, skills and deep understandings required for future success. We are dedicated to quality teaching that integrates I.C.T (Information, Communication Technologies), engaging students in ways not previously possible. New learning and teaching possibilities are created, enhancing achievement and extending interactions with local and global communities. The learning spaces are of the highest quality and our learning environment affirms the dignity of each person where learning is lifelong and personal.

We pride ourselves on the intellectual, spiritual, personal, social and physical growth of each individual within our care and take great pride in the children who leave our care prepared for the academic and social rigours of secondary school.

We invite prospective enrolments to visit our school, or our school website (www.hfmw.catholic.edu.au), and we look forward to meeting with you to share the outstanding community of Holy Family School, Mount Waverley.
