A Community of Faith, Life and Learning

A culture exists in which the Holy Family 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 our 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 you as your child’s first educator to become active participants in both.

Our current enrolment is 295 students placed in 14 classes. Our class sizes range from 16-24 students.

In 2022 our school has introduced 2 new programs - Performing Arts and STEM. In terms of intervention, our students will have the opportunity to engage in Tier 2 Reading Intervention programs (MiniLit and MacqLit) MultiLit is an evidence based, explicit and effective literacy intervention program for teaching reading skills.

Our school has formed partnerships with Swinburne University, The Resilience Project, Minds That Matter Psychology, Victoria Police (Monash Youth Services) and Respectful Relationships to promote the wellbeing and support the development of positive self image for each student. Our families have access to counsellors and psychologists onsite.

Our students are encouraged to have a 'voice' through a variety of avenues - SRC, student leadership and student led clubs.

Our Social Justice initiatives are based on 'giving of your time' to support others in our community. This change of focus has encouraged our Senior students to think of ways they can support our local kindergartens and students at our school. Last year our Year 5/6 visited a number of kindergartens to read stories and play games with the kindergarten students.

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 look forward to meeting with you to share our outstanding community of Holy Family School Mount Waverley.
