Principal Mr Michael Hopkinson's Message

​​HSP230309-1366.jpgWelcome to Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School

Holy Spirit is a Ca​tholic co-educational primary school, located in the picturesque suburb of New Farm.  Our foundations are embedded in the charism and rich heritage of the ideals of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy and we too, are guided by our motto 'to know what is right.'

Our school has a strong commitment to our Catholic mission and the history, traditions and rituals of our faith.  We have identified a series of Catholic values including respect, responsibility, justice and love and these values permeate life in our school.

The boutique size of our school ensures that every child is named, known and nurtured. Our purpose, 'Inspiring and challenging our children to know, think and value' underpins our learning programs and provides the perspective for many of our innovations.

We believe that each person has a different potential for spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional and physical development underpinned by our values of faith, respect, belonging,service and compassion.

We are proud of our role as a Catholic school in enhancing faith development, providing a welcoming Catholic community and being an integral part of the Holy Spirit Parish.

We are committed to:

  • Enhancing faith development within a welcoming Catholic community
  • Being a school of excellence in learning and teaching where students flourish in an array of stimulating learning encounters
  • Treating all as individuals with their different potential for development
  • Providing a safe and caring environment for learning where the wellbeing of all is paramount
  • ​Engaging and encountering positive experience that allow for success and prepare students for a world beyond primary school

I look forward to showcasing our beautiful school to you. Please contact the school office on 33582344 to make an appointment for a school tour and to find out more about what awaits your child at Holy Spirit School New Farm.
