A Catholic School
Holy Cross is a small Catholic school (2018 population – 210) located in the heart of Wooloowin since 1890. We are an integral part of the Lutwyche Catholic Parish. At Holy Cross we pride ourselves on living the Catholic story through liturgy, ritual and outreach. As a school we prioritise supporting the spiritual, social, academic and wellbeing needs of all our learners.
A Place of Diversity, Learners and Learning
We create engaging wellbeing, academic and social learning experiences and diverse opportunities for children to learn and grow. We aim to develop strong relationships, build confidence, and engage students within our community. These activities include our sporting program (swimming, athletics, touch football and cross-country), camps and excursions and other activities such as Mini Vinnies, chess, robotics, tennis and instrumental music.
A Belonging Community
We believe there is something special about Holy Cross. In that the minute you enter our school we believe you can feel a sense of belonging and welcome. We cherish our supportive community spirit. Open communication between staff, students and families is encouraged in our effort to improve and grow relationships. Throughout the school year many opportunities are provided for school families and parishioners to be actively involved in religious, educational, operational, social justice, social and fundraising activities.
A Range of Facilities for Learning
At Holy Cross we have wonderful facilities available to our learners and staff. We have 1-1 laptops in Year 4-6 and banks of laptops and i-pads available for other classes to enhance learning. These are used within a safe environment and one which promotes appropriate digital citizenship. Our library is well resourced, and children have access to library lessons, library borrowing and lunch access three days a week. Play is an important part of a child's development and our students enjoy our attractive gardens, large oval and play spaces.
A Place for Parental Involvement
We encourage parents to be involved in the life of their school. We have a vibrant parent community who contribute regularly to their children's education in a range of ways:
