Catholic Schools

Welcome to our Parish School Community

Welcome to Holy Spirit Parish, Gungahlin, one of the largest and fastest growing parishes in the Diocese of Canberra-Goulburn. You are now part of a young and vibrant Catholic community, in a new and rapidly developing part of Canberra. Guided by our call “empowered by the Spirit to serve” we look forward to supporting you and your family as members of our community.

We understand that choosing a school for your child is a very important decision and we thank you for considering the Catholic Schools in Holy Spirit Parish. We are very fortunate to have in the Parish three primary schools and a secondary school, providing a complete Catholic pathway from Pre School through to Year 12, namely:

St John Paul II College has been in operation since 2013 when it began with an intake of Year 7 students.  It is situated in Nicholls on a beautiful campus with state of the art facilities.  The College will add a new year group each year, reaching Year 12 in 2018.

Each school offers a wonderful learning environment underpinned by Catholic values and teaching, and we encourage you to contact the schools directly to discuss how they best meet your family’s needs and expectations.
