2018 Orientation and Transition Day


On Wednesday, 15 November 2017 Holy Cross College hosted an orientation day for students who will be new to the school in 2018. Around 230 new students from pre-primary to year seven enjoyed a fun day of activities designed to induct the students into the life of the College and build friendships in preparation for the new school year in 2018.
Parents enjoyed a tour of the facilities and an introductory seminar outlining the faith story of the College, along with details regarding the requirements and procedures for the commencement of the 2018 school year.
Students were introduced to the 2018 year-level teachers in the Junior school. A number of new staff members were present for the orientation day.



We welcome the following new Junior School teachers for 2018:
  • Joanne Wright
  • Annette Barron
  • Megan Brown
  • Anthony Davis
  • Amy Edwards
  • Deanna Russo
  • Kate Dunstan

We also welcome a number of new teachers to the Middle and Senior Schools for 2018:

  • Rachel Whan – Chemistry/Science
  • Georgina Pratt – Dance
  • Jessica Vaini – Digital Technology
  • Rachel Rafferty – English
  • Sharna Gregson – Human Biology/Science
  • Leanne Murphy – Home Economics

The demand for student places at the College has been strong with an additional stream of classes added from year two to year six for 2018. Limited places are available in some year levels for 2018.


Holy Cross College has established an excellent reputation for its contemporary approach to learning and teaching within vibrant and flexible learning spaces, underpinned by the latest educational theories and technology. The success of the approach to teaching and learning is confirmed through NAPLAN results, which show consistent value adding across the years, as well as a student receiving a General Exhibition in the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) examinations. We hope to build on these outstanding achievements in 2018 and in the years to come.
We are looking forward to working together in partnership with our new students and families.
