Sports Program

Students represent Holy Spirit School with pride and good sportsmanship at these events. Students in Year 6  also participate in interschool sports programs with a variety of sports offered.

Excursions, Cultural Activities and Camps

Excursions and School Camps are part of the school program as these activities enhance the growth of the “whole” person. Regular performances at the school provide an opportunity for the children to be exposed to a variety of cultural experiences. 

Educational excursions are used as a focus or culmination of a unit of work.
