Explore the amazing opportunities we're creating for our students


Give your child the best opportunity to develop academically, spiritually and socially.

Holy Family Primary is a Catholic coeducational primary school that was founded by and is educating in the tradition of the Sisters of St Joseph. Holy Family Primary School was established in 1938. In living out the values of Christ, our school celebrates the uniqueness of each person within a diverse community. This is reflected in our school motto ‘In Christ we live, love and learn’.

We are committed to providing each student with a learning environment that is comprehensive, inclusive and challenging. Located in East Granville, we are a multicultural school which seeks to live out the values of Christ in a caring and supportive environment.


Our Josephite Heritage

Holy Family Primary is a Josephite School. We aim to lead our students to understand what it means to care and support those in need, both within and beyond our Catholic school community. A Holy Family education is essentially aimed at developing a loving and supportive community that lives and relates based on gospel values. It provides, as far as possible, the best possible conditions for the growth of each student within an environment reflective of the Holy Family.
