Alive with the Spirit

We believe our vision gives shape to how we work together to support the development of our students and on which we build our community and plan our teaching and learning. Holy Spirit is a vibrant faith and learning community that welcomes and supports students and their families from all faith backgrounds.

Holy Spirit Primary School has a strong focus on literacy and numeracy with a commitment to engaging students of all ability levels. The school balances the curriculum with an emphasis on explicit direct instruction, high impact teaching practices, creativity, physical activity and personal and faith development. 

The school achieves its vision by ensuring each student is welcome, safe, nurtured, and encouraged to do their personal best, and is recognised as a valuable member of the school community.

We are blessed with a committed and generous staff, working with supportive and active parents and students who take pride in their school. The strong sense of school spirit and ethos combined with the modern and contemporary facilities make Holy Spirit Primary School a school of choice for many students in the Gungahlin region.

A wide range of services are available to assist all students and their families, including a Defence School Mentor (DSM), Student Welfare Officer and a School Counsellor. Our students are also given many opportunities to be involved in extracurricular activities including a variety of clubs, sport, individual music tuition, choir, and Mini Vinnies. Students participate in Library, The Arts, Chinese and STEM classes with specialist teachers.

If you require any further information or you would like to make an appointment to meet with me, please contact the school on (02) 62418640 or I look forward to meeting you and showing you around our wonderful school.
