Kia ora and greetings from Celeste Hastings, principal, and the students, staff and families of Holy Cross, Miramar. We are a Year 1- 8 Catholic School providing a comprehensive learning environment, including after school care.
Our school motto ‘Let Your Light Shine’ encourages us to be who we are and to develop our talents so that we are able to achieve more than we ever dreamed possible.
Holy Cross School warmly invites Parents and Caregivers to the Little Angels playgroup in 2017. Please come and join in the fun in Room 11 and 12 twice a term from 1.45-3.00pm Click here for more details - All welcome!
We are proud of the opportunities and innovative programmes we provide. In the Junior School we have a personalised IOL to Holy Cross School and have renamed it, Think-Talk-Create. Recognition of the success and significance of this programme has been recorded in the Dominion Post and Wellingtonian newspapers as well as the Ministry of Education's recent 'Spotlight on Schools'. We are also very proud of our middle school 'Garden to Table' programme and our senior school ‘Leadership Programme’ which alongside the William Pike Challenge Awards, have resulted in a significant number of our students going on to become prefects at our local colleges. We believe that the best way to find out about a school is to spend time there, so we warmly invite you to visit us and see if our school is the right place for your child.
Holy Cross School is a Signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. All international student enquires welcome. Please contact the school office on (+64 4) 388-7189.
"The school’s vision for learning and success is well articulated and effectively shared and promoted through Gospel values and Māori concepts. Students demonstrate a sense of belonging and confidence in participating in the life of the school. Learning environments foster respectful interactions and promote participation, risktaking and confidence. Students make very good progress as they move through the school. The school has high expectations for the learning success of all students and works to promote equitable and excellent outcomes. ERO is likely to carry out the next review in four-to-five years.“
