Our Story

Holy Family Primary opened its doors in 2004 with an enrolment of 38 students and seven staff, two of whom were part time. The planning for this school started many years before, with various groups in the community consulted about the kind of school they wanted. The enabling committee worked with these groups and after much consultation came up with ideas as to how the school would look. Architects, Fulton Trotter and Partners, took into consideration the ideas of the community and designed a beautiful complex which was completed at the end of 2010. Our opening plaque recognises and acknowledges the Darug people who were the original custodians of the land on which the school is built.

Holy Family Primary offers a safe and well-ordered environment that is characterised by quality teaching, positive relationships, effective pastoral care and individual attention to each student.

Holy Family Primary is a two-stream school accepting enrolments from 12 suburbs in the Mt Druitt area and serves the parish of Holy Family Parish, Mt Druitt.

NAIDOC Celebrations 2017
NAIDOC was celebrated at Holy Family Emerton on 28th June. Our theme this year was- Our Languages Matter. Our day began with a smoking ceremony where Uncle Richard, Uncle Lexodious, Corina and Julie Jones welcomed us to their country. We then had a beautiful and moving Aboriginal Liturgy where Uncle Richard shared Dharug language and the meaning of country to his people. Next we shared an Indigenous Bush Tucker Morning Tea that included Mini Kangaroo Quiche, Crocodile Damperballs with Finger Lime dipping sauce and Native Hibiscus Lemonade infused with Native Hibiscus. After our tummies were full, the whole school was involved in Dharug Language Workshops with local Aboriginal Dharug people. It truly was a culturally rich day full of amazing experiences that allowed us to celebrate local Aboriginal people who were so generous in sharing their knowledge. A huge thanks goes out to our Aboriginal families and Teacher volunteers who made this day possible. And a very special thanks goes out to Julie Jones who was instrumental in the success of this great NAIDOC celebration.

Holy Family Reading Hour
On 26th August Holy Family held a Reading Hour for students and parents. This was a wonderful opportunity for parents/carers to interact over a book. "The reading hour was great! Everybody got to share a book with their family and got the chance to win a great prize. The prizes that we could win were books such as ‘Soon’ and ‘Inside Out’. There were animal books such as mammals and reptiles and loads of other great books! Just about everybody that came won a fabulous book to read while they were there. By Tomika  6W
