Ethos

The Holy Family Catholic School exists to provide a contemporary education rooted in traditional gospel values where we believe that Christ is at the heart of all our endeavours inspiring us to excellence, where justice, compassion, a commitment to service and moral responsibility pervade everything that we do. We aim to awaken students to the largeness of the world around them, give them a dream of human achievement and an active concern for the human predicament here and now and in doing so reveal the truth about God, Christ and Spirit.

 

Aims of the School

We will ensure a safe, disciplined, calm and purposeful environment where world-class teaching and independent learning can flourish supported by a caring pastoral system that is rooted in mutually respectful relationships.

 

We want to give every child of this school the best chance in life, we want to open doors of opportunity and bring them a sense of fulfilment, joy and pleasure and we will do this by building upon the excellent partnership that exists between parents, staff, students and indeed the wider community.

 

We will offer security to our young people because we are a school that is self-confident in its Catholic identity where the truths of faith are clearly expounded and where the Gospel of love is evident in the way all members of our community treat each other.

 

 

The School Prayer

 

God our Father,

You created us

And through your Son, Jesus,

Made us members of your holy family,

The Church.

 

Fill us with the gift of your Holy Spirit,

that we may have the strength to care for one another

and the courage to lead our lives

following the example of your Son.

 

Mary, Mother of God, keep us from harm.

Joseph, patron of all workers,

Help us to develop our talents

to the best of our ability.
