We recognise the importance of preparing our students for the future and the role technology plays in achieving this.
All classrooms are fitted with Apple TVs whilst students benefit from our school-wide 1:1 IPad Program. iPads in K-2 are school-owned, whilst students in Years 3-6 bring their own iPads. Students use a range of apps to enhance learning including Google Classroom and Seesaw.

Holy Cross is a welcoming and inclusive community. Students and families are encouraged to become involved in many aspects of parish and school life.
We come together as a community on many occasions:
Our parents and carers are very engaged with the school and take up opportunities such as P&F events, information evenings, parent/teacher meetings, liturgies and masses. Our volunteers also assist in classrooms and library support.
Catholic schools strive to keep fees as low as possible so that more families can choose a Catholic education for their children. Even when school fees paid by parents are included, Catholic schools, on average, operate with only about 90% of the income of government schools, meaning Catholic schools consistently achieve more with less.
In keeping with Gospel values, no child is refused a Catholic education due to financial inability or difficulty.
New or existing parents who find themselves in this situation are encouraged to discuss fee concessions with the school principal who will treat the situation with understanding, sensitivity and confidentiality.
It is the expectation that families with the capacity to contribute do so, so that our schools can maintain the high quality of education that Catholic education is known for and our families expect.
