Holy Spirit Infants School, Abermain celebrated 100 years in 2008, remembering the humble beginnings and selflessness of the Josephite Order that founded the school.
Holy Spirit Infants' community is small and unique and one that strives for excellence in education. Our expectations are high and the staff is passionate about teaching and learning. We provide an environment in which students are encouraged to live out gospel values, especially those of acceptance, respect, dignity and honesty. We seek to provide a holistic experience for students through academic, spiritual, physical and emotional endeavours.
We are host to two satellite Aspect classes which provide a wonderful dimension to our school. Teachers work closely with parents to educate each student based on individual needs.
We program core, modified and extension teaching and learning activities from the SWELL literacy program, PM writing and guided reading materials, Reading Eggs, Lexia cross trainer and reading program, Count Me In Too mathematics, Mathletics, Essential Moves and the You Can Do It program which teaches life skills leading to emotional resilience.The school follows the 123 Magic approach to discipline.
We are involved with the Parish providing Pastoral care for families through the Seasons for Growth Program and we provide many opportunities for students and parents to pray, reflect and celebrate liturgies and Masses throughout the year.
We acknowledge parents as the prime educators of their children and seek them to assist with small group and class activities at school each week.
