Annual Report

Our Annual Action Plan targets improvement in learning outcomes for all students.

The goals and strategies identified in this plan are centred around personalising learning opportunities
‘Kidsmatter’ has continued to be embraced as an umbrella encompassing all that we do in the area of Wellbeing.

We have worked to continue to strengthen personal and inter-personal relationships as a key strategy in establishing an environment where all are respected and encouraged in their learning.

Respect and tolerance for the rights and needs of others continues to foster the great community feeling that permeates the school.

Holy Spirit continues to be a community that is focused, supportive and welcoming to all. We celebrate the achievements of all of the students and enjoy the uniqueness each of them brings to the school. We are grateful for the teamwork of staff and parents who work so closely to make this a special place to be.

Principal Report

As a staff we have worked hard to continue to develop our partnerships with our families. I thank every member of the staff and congratulate them for their ongoing professionalism and willingness to give whatever is required to improve the outcomes for children and families at our school.

The wonderful parent community at Holy Spirit has continued to be the best support we could ask for.

We continue to look for every opportunity to celebrate the uniqueness of each child and they are truly responsible for creating and maintaining the friendly atmosphere that exists within our school.

Goals and Intended Outcomes:
  • To strengthen a genuine partnership with our families, our parish and the local and broader community.
  • That the participation and involvement by the parent and wider community in the school and parish life continues to grow.
