All learning spaces have been recently renovated and the school has an enrolment of approximately 350 students.
Holy Child Primary School is the parish primary school of the Parish of Holy Child, Dallas. At Holy Child we invite our community to make sense of and celebrate its everyday experiences in light of Gospel teachings and the traditions of the Catholic community. We encourage students to model the behaviour of Mary of the Cross (Mary MacKillop) and Jesus our patron, to show how to live the values of the Gospel through justice, love and service, as they come to know about their community, the world, life and the human person.
Our curriculum is developed within the guidelines of the Australian Curriculum, using a Multi Domain approach, which is delivered through an inquiry based learning model.
Learning and Teaching at Holy Child School aims to develop skills, attitudes and deep understandings about the world and how it works, and to enable students to operate effectively in that world.
