“To be Family & To Build Family”


We, the members of the Holy Family Secondary School community, invite you to browse through our website.

Our Catholics girls only secondary school, founded by the Holy Family Sisters, has as its central educational focus the philosophy of the founder, Fr. Pierre Bienvenu Noailles, the development of the whole person in the setting of a nurturing family.

Therefore, whilst we encourage our girls to maximize their educational potential, we also strive to create young women who have within them a strong spiritual compass to help live meaningful lives.

We are proud of our Holy Family heritage of education in Newbridge, and strive to provide a happy school atmosphere in which individuality, self-development, respect, tolerance and gentleness are part of the fabric of our school.
