We offer students diverse avenues to nurture their talents, explore their interests and cultivate their innate gifts.
Recognising the importance of extending students’ growth beyond the classroom, we wholeheartedly believe that engaging in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities fosters the enhancement of their talents, interests, and gifts.
A highlight on our calendar is the annual LIFE Week — a week abounding with cross-curricular engagements, camps and transformative pilgrimages. Each year group participates in their own age-appropriate experience, which is designed to engage them in authentic learning adventures encompassing all elements of our LIFE Pillars (Learning, Inter-relationships. Faith, Enrichment). This dedicated time amplifies our commitment to fostering holistic enrichment.
At Holy Cross, the avenues to explore both visual and performing arts are immensely popular among our students. We facilitate access to instrumental music instruction, the chance to be a part of music ensembles or the choir, and active involvement in our annual Drama Production and Dance Showcase. These opportunities are designed to foster artistic expression and creativity among our students.
We also enthusiastically promote sports participation and offer abundant in-school avenues for students to engage and compete in a wide spectrum of sports. Our Inter-House Carnivals in Swimming, Cross-Country and Athletics not only ignite our school spirit but also foster strong bonds among students within their respective Houses.
For those who exhibit excellence in specific sports (or even multiple ones), the opportunity arises to represent the College in interschool competitions. Simultaneously, we ensure that all students have the chance to partake in extra-curricular sports against neighbouring schools. This includes Basketball, Netball, Frisbee, Volleyball, AFL, AFLW and Soccer, among others. We also offer students opportunities to explore our diverse co-curricular and extra-curricular offerings, which can be explored below.
