In Holy Cross Girls' we offer a child centred education. Every child is encouraged to attain her potential, academically, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our dedicated staff deliver a broad, balanced curriculum using a variety of teaching styles to suit the individual needs of the children.
We take our task very seriously and assure you that we encourage the same high standard from your child as you do yourself. With your help we want your daughter to succeed in her school work and grow up to become a happy, healthy, moral, responsible and confident young person.
Central to our ethos is our Catholic identity. We have strong links to our parish and have dedicated priests to help prepare the children for the sacraments.
We are an all inclusive school and welcome children from other faiths and cultures.
Holy Cross Girls' welcomes and expects the whole hearted support and involvement of parents. With their co-operation and with the professional commitment of the teachers our children are encouraged to reach the highest possible standard and be the very best that they can be.
We are proud of the "Outstanding" grade awarded to the school at our ETI inspection March 2015.
We would be delighted to have the opportunity to show prospective parents around our school, where the atmosphere and variety of activities can be experienced first hand.

Easter Celebrations 2017
Some of our P6 girls enjoyed a day out to celebrate completing their Reading Partnership Programme. They had a great time choosing books in Easons and having lunch in McDonalds before spending some time in Ardoyne Library.
Congratulations to our classroom assistants who were accredited with their Reading Partnership qualification and our thanks to them for the fabulous work done supporting the girls through the programme.
Digital Schools Award
Mr Victor McNair from Digital Schools Awards NI spent the morning in our school inspecting the ICT programme of work and the activities done by children and staff. He was impressed by the wide variety of programmes and initiatives that the school has implemented over the past few years.
Mr McNair was delighted with everything inspected and was happy to award the school their Digital Schools Award. This prestigious award will be presented to the school once the report has been published.
Congratulations to Miss Magill and Mrs O'Neill, our ICT Co-ordinators, the digital leaders and all the children and staff for their great work. We are extremely proud of our school.

ICT Good Practice
CCEA (Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment) produced this short video with Holy Cross Girls' and it will be showcased on CCEA's website as a model of good practice for the excellent work done with the children by our teachers in the school. Well done to all our staff!
Holy Cross Girls' Choir
Our choir sang beautifully at the Concert for Refugees in Holy Cross Church on Friday 21st October. For those of you not able to attend we decided to video them so you could share in their wonderful performance.
