Principal's Message

Welcome to Holy Cross Catholic Primary School, Helensburgh. Our school acknowledges the original Aboriginal landowners and extends respect to past, present and future local Elders.

Holy Cross Catholic Primary School is grounded in the community of the Holy Cross Catholic Parish. Together, we provide an education that opens the hearts of children to the presence of God in this community and in our daily lives. We do this by coming to know Jesus Christ and his teachings. See What We Offer.

Our school was founded in 1900 by the Sisters of St Joseph. Our traditions, values and beliefs are inspired by the charism of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and the Sisters of St Joseph. Read more About Us.

Holy Cross is a vibrant and caring community. We are committed to providing our students with quality Catholic education. This commitment is two dimensional: quality Catholic and quality education.

We provide quality Catholic education, through our commitment to creating, what Pope Francis calls, a ‘community of missionary disciples’ – a mission culture – where all of us, students, parents, staff and parish, understand that service and care for others will make present God’s kingdom of love, justice, mercy and reconciliation.

We provide quality Catholic education through our Wellbeing and Pastoral Care programs, the quality of our relationships and most importantly the emphasis we place on making our faith relevant to our students.

We provide quality education at Holy Cross through our commitment to student learning growth and equipping students to be creative, connected and engaged learners in our rapidly changing world. Find out more about our Learning and Teaching.

Our vision is to "Learn to Learn, Live and Love". We provide a quality curriculum that considers the diverse learning needs of all children and provides opportunities for all to excel.

Our many spiritual, academic, sporting, creative and pastoral programs support students to develop their full potential spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally and socially.

Serving and leading this very special community is an absolute privilege and I warmly invite you to learn more about Holy Cross through the pages of this website or by contacting the school to speak with us.
