Holy Spirit School



Principal’s Message

I take this opportunity to officially welcome you and your family to the Holy Spirit School website. I encourage you to take the time to navigate around our site as it provides an excellent ‘snapshot’ of our wonderful school.

This geographical area enjoys a rich history, what with the gold discoveries of the 1850’s and the Soldier Settlements, after WW1, where fruit growing became the main agricultural pursuit. During the ‘Depression’ years of the 1930’s, the Hume Weir was also constructed.  From somewhat humble beginnings in 1970 with 50 children enrolled and 3 teachers, our school has steadily grown to its present number of 275 students and some 30 staff members. We enjoy many fine resources, facilities and grounds alike – I am confident our gallery of photos will give you an accurate insight of this.

We pride ourselves on the family atmosphere that permeates throughout every aspect of our school. We have a very proactive and supportive parent group and school council. Parents are always welcome and on a daily basis we enjoy ‘helpers’ in the canteen, library, and in the classrooms. We also enjoy a very healthy number of parents who coordinate fundraising initiatives.

I invite all parents and guardians to take up the commitment to your child’s schooling in general. Your support and active interest enables the school to provide the best possible education for your child. Catholic schools exist to provide education in a Catholic/Christian culture where the meaning and message of Jesus Christ is available to all students. This message permeates all dimensions of our school life.

Once again, enjoy our website, http://www.hsslavington.com/

and I hope to welcome you into our school family soon.

Yours In Catholic Education

Mark MacLean
