Cana Catholic Primary School is located in the suburb of Hillside in the outer north west of Melbourne. Cana is the third Catholic primary school in the Parish of Sacred Heart / Emmaus where a strong link between the parish and school is valued and nurtured.

Fr J O’Reilly who was Parish Priest and Faith Leader in our Parish for 45 years maintained a firm belief in the provision of a strong Catholic education for each student. In August 2017, Fr Maurice Cooney took over as Parish Priest and is also committed to the wellbeing of each family, student and staff member within the Cana community


Our students and the community enjoy the use of a purpose built art room, attractive administration building, staff /resource room along with a generous technology-rich library/resource center.

The school is fortunate to have spacious playing areas for students inclusive of shaded playground equipment and two basketball courts. The students enjoy an extensive synthetic grass soccer/football oval and running tracks. The students also have an attractive, open, paved-surface playing area.

Our community has the use of a multi-purpose hall where the whole school gathers to celebrate the Eucharist each week. The hall also provides a large space to host an after-school program to support working families, and other whole-school events/activities.
