Holroyd High School is a comprehensive, co-educational high school with a focus on quality learning in a safe, well-disciplined and supportive environment that fosters individual excellence and the achievement of personal goals. The school has strong links with outside agencies and three universities in Sydney.
Holroyd High School has proven popular with international students coming from China, Cambodia, Korea, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Iran and Thailand. The school has an enrolment of 8 International Students as at Term 2 2019. We have six students in the IEC and two in the high school.
The school's motto is progrediamur, which is Latin for 'let us go forward'. Students are encouraged to proudly uphold this motto by striving to better themselves, to do their best, to work hard and to contribute to the school and the community. The aim of the school is to develop students intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally.
In the high school, students are offered a wide range of subjects including English, mathematics, science, social sciences, languages, technological and applied studies, computing, physical education, art, music, drama and English as an Additional Dialect or Language (EAL/D).
The main focus in the IEC is on learning EALD to an intermediate level. After 2 terms of intensive learning in the IEC, students progress to high school. Students who require a further extension are offered additional time to improve their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. The students also study other key learning areas (KLAs) such as mathematics, science, history, geography, art, music, food technology, computer studies and physical education.
Besides classroom activities, the school offers many extracurricular activities such as sport, swimming, athletics and cross country carnivals, excursions around Sydney, overnight camps, music, drama, chess, and multicultural activities.
Holroyd High School and the Intensive English Centre are a happy, tolerant and harmonious school which values and celebrates the cultural and linguistic diversity of its students. Fundamental to the positive and progressive nature of the school are the concepts of respect – for oneself and others, and for the community – and responsibility.
