Welcome to the Holy Spirit School, Lavington website.
For those who may not be familiar with the school or the region. We are located in the northern edge of the City of Albury, in Southern New South Wales. We are one of three Catholic Primary School in the town and we have a partnership with Xavier High School.
From somewhat humble beginnings in 1970 with 50 children enrolled and 3 teachers, our school has steadily grown to its present number of 340 students and some 25 staff members. Our school is one of the best resourced in country NSW.
The school aims to provide a broad based education and caring learning environment that will enable all children to realise their full potential in all aspects of their development. Our Learning Spaces and teaching philosophy are based on world class research as to how children learn best. As a staff, we believe that all children are created with talents and are special individuals, our job is to foster and develop these.
Our school is recognized for the family friendly atmosphere that is promoted through parental involvement in all areas of the school. This includes our School Council, helping with reading in the Learning Spaces and welcoming new families, helping with the school fund raising, including Bingo on Wednesday night or attending our weekly assemblies on Friday … all avenues for parents to be involved.
Holy Spirit provides an environment of 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. Our school has a strong association with Holy Spirit Parish and the school regularly attends Mass and celebrations in the church.
You are welcome to browse our website which will give a sense of our school, but nothing can be better than to see the school, the students and the staff in person. Please feel free to contact us for a guided tour of the facilities.
Yours In Catholic Education,
