Dear Parents and Guardians,

In line with action taken by Catholic Schools NSW the College wishes to advise that:

Any student who has visited China (including Hong Kong) in the last 14 days should not return to school for a period of 14 days as the incubation period can be as long as two weeks.

Any student who has had close contact with a person with confirmed case of Novel Coronavirus should not return to school for at least 14 days since the last contact with the confirmed case.

Any student with a confirmed case of Novel Coronavirus will be excluded from school until they are medically cleared to return.

In all cases we ask students to bring in  a clearance certificate from their medical practitioner before resuming school after the 14 day exclusion period.

If you are concerned with your child experiencing flu like symptoms, cough or fever please take them immediately to a health care professional.  They should not attend school if they present “flu like” symptoms.

Staff at the College has received the same advice.

We ask for your full cooperation in this matter.

Principal’s Message

In my first year returning as Principal at Maronite College of the Holy Family, I have been honoured by the way all staff, parents and students work as a family.

In 2019 the College’s overall structure changed. The formation of Howayek Providence Ltd was formed with a new Governing Board consisting of members with expertise in Law, Education, Finance, HR etc.

Our Leadership Management including the Executive Team, Primary and Secondary Leadership teams, have worked very closely to ensure the best possible educational outcomes were implemented. 

The Parent Association have provided a necessary link between the College and home, and additional funding for the College through their many activities.  

The College has invested in a maintenance work, upgrading and purchasing of teaching and learning resources.

Our NAPLAN results were very impressive particularly in Year 3 which were above the National average in every area.

Our Year 12 cohort performed well in their HSC and many were accepted into the University of preference.

In 2020 we will see an increase in enrolments across the school. This is a positive sign of the success of the College and positive reputation it has among the community. We will also be increasing our staffing numbers so that we are better able to cater to students of all needs.

In 2020 we are hoping to expand our playground areas and work towards a strategic plan in regards to buildings.

I look forward to another exciting and challenging year and take this occasion to wish you all a Blessed Christmas and New Year.

In God’s love

Sr Irene Boughosn
