Beyond the Classroom

We are committed to providing a comprehensive education for all of our students. To help ensure this, we offer a number of additional support and extra-curricular programs to challenge, enable and empower all students.


A Holy Family education allows students to discover their own talents and provides opportunities to fully explore these including:

  • Year 4, 5 and 6 students learning an instrument through the CAPTIVATE program
  • School band program
  • Opportunities for involvement in the Diocesan Creative Arts Expo
  • Involvement in local community art competitions
  • Involvement in NAIDOC Week celebrations
  • Participation in the Mount Druitt Walk for Reconciliation
  • Aboriginal culture is celebrated with a Welcome to Country at weekly assemblies
  • Voice of Youth public speaking competition
  • Premier’s Reading Challenge

Holy Family also runs a free, two-day school holiday program designed to give students a “jump-start” into the next school term. This program is run before each new school term and incorporates a number of games and learning challenges designed to prepare students for the term ahead.
