Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.“ — W.B. Yeats
Welcome to Holy Cross Catholic Primary School.
As a father of three children, it is my greatest desire that my own children are equipped to face the many challenges that life deals. It is my hope that they grow to have a strong sense of self, to be respectful and driven to achieve greatness. I want my own children to feel safe and happy so that they can embrace learning. I want them to be connected with others.
This is what I also want for all of the children at Holy Cross.
I am honoured to be principal of such a fantastic school. We pride ourselves on developing the students entrusted into our care in many ways: spiritually, socially, intellectually, emotionally, psychologically and physically. We seek to foster the total well being of every child and ensure that we have a strong commitment to providing a safe and harmonious school environment where successful relationships thrive.
I am supported by a dedicated group of staff who work tirelessly to ensure that the children receive a challenging and stimulating curriculum. We pride ourselves on delivering a curriculum that is targeted at individual students’ needs. We plan experiences which will hopefully foster positive attitudes towards each other, school, teachers, parents and life itself.
We recognise our responsibility to provide an education which is not only engaging for our students, but which is also rigorous and effective in equipping our students with the skills needed to be authentic lifelong learners.
We look forward to working in partnership with you.
