Year 7 and 8 Camp Update

We are so delighted with the support that has come from the Holy Cross Community and beyond for the school camp. 

We acknowledge and thank the following sponsors and supporters

  • Lion Foundation who are sponsoring the Ski Day
  • Pelorus Trust who are sponsoring the Ferry Crossings
  • Circuit Security Systems who are sponsoring the camp tshirt
  • Parent Support Group who are paying for the hireage of a 12 seater mini van
  • School Donation Fee is being used to cover the costs of the activities at camp.

With the additional support from the rest of the school from the Major Prize Raffle, the individual amount each student must raise for the camp is now $300 and your child will be updated with their individual camp account next week after the mini gala.
