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.
We are proud of the programmes and opportunities we provide. In the junior school we run an exciting ‘Discovery Time’ which helps support a happy transition to school. Our senior school ‘Leadership Programme’ has resulted in a significant number of our students going on to become prefects at our local colleges. Every student is supported to take on leadership responsibilities.
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 388-7189.
