Family - School Partnership
Holy Cross College Family - School Partnership recognises and values the role that parents and carers play in the education of their children and aims to strengthen the partnership between family, school, parish and the wider community for the benefit of their children’s overall development and learning.
To better support and encourage parents’ engagement with their son’s learning, well-being and faith development and to better meet the needs of contemporary high school parents, the Family - School Partnership (FSP) was launched at the Parents in Touch Forum held on Tuesday 10 March 2015.
Feedback from attendees found the night to be fun and social - especially the stimulating and thought provoking discussions.
2015 was a building year, establishing Communities of Interest around the themes of: learning; well-being; faith development; home-school communication, and; enhancing social connections within the College community. In 2016, these communities were chaired by parents in partnership with the College and several initiatives were carried out during the year. Our intention is to hold an annual convocation of the FSP in the second half of Term 4. To find out more, you can follow the conversation on:
Here you will find links to tools and resources, parenting links, home work help, news about education, articles on student learning and well-being and raising boys.

At Holy Cross we believe that education happens in partnership with families and is a shared responsibility with the community.
In addition to becoming involved in the Family School Partnership, all parents are also invited to become actively involved in other facets of College life such as the learning support, care for the College Chapel and sports coaching.
The wider community is also involved in education at Holy Cross. Local clergy provide support with prayer and liturgical programs and local businesses assist with work experience placements and Industry Studies opportunities. Students are also actively engaged in community fundraising and civil projects.
