Teaching and learning is our core focus and we are committed to delivering positive learning experiences to all students through best and effective teaching practices.

We believe that every student should experience at least one year’s growth over the course of one year of learning.

Our goal is to develop all Holy Name students as deep learners who can articulate what they are learning, know how they are learning it, and the skills they need to move to the next level of learning.

Class teachers apply this pedagogy in all lessons enabling Holy Name students to experience success as they access the curriculum. 


Holy Name is a Catholic school immersed in the values of the Sisters of Mercy providing 

  • friendly, welcoming, family atmosphere that fosters the Gospel values and academic excellence
  • a care code that has the student's well-being at the centre of everything we do
  • a dedicated and progressive staff who are inclusive and outreaching
  • an indoor Activity Centre that caters for all types of sport
  • an engaging and well-resourced ICT program incorporating iPads, Interactive White Boards and laptops into our pedagogical practices. 
  • specialist drama, art and sport teachers  
  • a dance and swimming program for all students 
  • an extension and enrichment program
  • a visible community spirit with an active and dedicated parent body 
  • a fun and exciting Before and After School Program delivered in a safe and secure environment.
