​​​​​​Testimonials.jpgEveryone is welcomed warmly

"Our son absolutely thrived during his first year at Holy Cross. Our experience has been that every child is welcomed warmly as part of a community. As a result, the transition from kindergarten was seamless - our son was excited to go each day and see his wonderful teachers and new friends. We are blown away by how much he has already learnt and experienced in just one year." (Alice - Parent)

A safe and inclusive environment

"Holy Cross is a fantastic school, with experienced and dedicated teachers who prioritise learning within a safe and inclusive environment. Our children love going to school and we love watching them head off so happily each day. It is great to watch their educational development under the care of their classroom teachers. In our experience, the teachers are very attentive to the needs of each child in thier class and open to discuss those needs with us, as parents, to collaborate on ways to optimise the kids' school experience. The small class size makes this possible.

This school also fosters a caring community. Many parents give generously of their time to ensure school events are fun-filled and, in turn, support and strengthen the children's relationships with each other and the families at the school. The outside school hours program is a significant bonus. Run by an enthusiastic team, it is easy to get a place for before and after school care, as well as vacation care (which is so helpful for juggling work commitments). Our kids love going to before and after school care, and are often disappointed when we arrive too early to pick them up! All in all, Holy Cross offers a wonderful start to a child's educational journey." (Ruth - Parent)

A lovely local school

"We've thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Holy Cross. We joined the school in 2021 at Prep and have been impressed by the deep experience of the teachers and the supportive friendly community. We highly recommend this lovely local school." (Paula - Parent)

Everyone is treated as an individual

"The thing I adore the most about the Holy Cross School and its community is the close-nit, small, caring feel where everyone is treated as an individual. I love the fact that ll the staff know my son's name, they take a keen interest in him, and you feel very much a part of the 'Holy Cross Family' when you cross the threshold into the school property. It is that personalised, caring approach that sets Holy Cross apart from the other options we looked at. This year my son has be there five years, and is very much a part of the school community. I commend the staff for their individualised approach." (Tom - Parent)

Lots of opportunities

​"Holy Cross is not just a school. - it's a community. I've loved watching my children grow and flourish​ in such a nurturing environment. The school is small enough to offer a personal touch to all families and big enough that students get a wide array of opportunities across education, sport and extra-curricular." (Mel - Parent)

Our children have blossomed

"As a family, we have had the most wonderful experience at Holy Cross School. It is a community learning environment where our child's gifts have been nurtured, respected and celebrated. It has been a joy to watch our children blossom and thrive at Holy Cross." (Maree and Anthony - Parents)

Where students feel nurtured

"In an area full of very large schools, Holy Cross is a small school with a beautiful community. It has been a wonderfully welcoming and safe environment for our kids. They feel nurtured and confident to try new things and be themselves. The teachers are hard-working, thoughtful and caring and do their best to support all the students' needs. We love Holy Cross."  (Anna and Jake - Parents)

We have been blessed

" Holy Cross School has been the most supportive community throughout our children's primary school years. The community spirit, actions of parents and teachers within the school, has been remarkable. We have been blessed to be a part of such a caring community.  I cannot thank all the staff enough for their support and kindness throughout the early years of our children's primary education. We will be forever thankful." (Mariska and Vito - Parents)

OSH​C is the best!

"We've found the school to be a very welcoming community, with friendly and dedicated staff. The specialist lessons and extra-curricular activities offered are fantastic and the onsite out of hours school care (OSHC) is the best! Our three girls have all really enjoyed their time at Holy Cross." (Marika - Parent)

Exceeded our hopes

"After only a few weeks in Prep as a new family to Holy Cross School, we are already counting our blessings to have found such a warm and welcoming school. The school community has exceeded our hopes, with all the benefits of a tight-knit small school. Older students, teachers and Holy Cross families greet our daughter (and us) by name and with a smile." (Steph - Parent)
