The first day of school can be an exciting and nervous time for students and parents alike. With an emphasis on pastoral care, the arrival of new students highlights the way Catholic schools educate "for today and tomorrow", which is the theme of this year's Catholic Schools Week.
The photos below are a selection from Holy Family Primary School, Merewether Beach. The core values of Holy Family are based on the school motto 'Thy will be done.' The school achieves its mission of being an authentic Catholic school through the development of a relational community.
We wish students and parents good luck on the start of this great journey!
