Welcome

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.

Mrs Maura McNally
B.Ed, PQH

MATHS IS FUN!


Pupils from Mercy Primary and Mercy College visited our school today to take part in an Izak 9 Maths Quiz. Working together in teams they used their thinking skills to answer questions and solve problems with the help of the Izak 9 cubes. It was great to see the girls all working together. Everyone including the audience thoroughly enjoyed the fun afternoon.
Thanks to Mrs Owens and Mrs Millar for their super organisation and the prizes for the winning team (The Maths Chicks). Well done to all!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

P1 Induction Day

Our new P1 girls had a wonderful time visiting their new P1 classroom and teacher. They met new friends to play with in the classroom and enjoyed the sunshine in our outdoor learning area where they climbed, investigated buglife, cycled, built bridges, created music, made mud pies in the mud kitchen and had a go on the slide. What a fantastic bunch of girls they were. We look forward to their first day in September. Have a lovely summer girls!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Life in Primary One 2017

 

As the school years comes closer to an end the Primary Ones have created a video to let you see what they have got up to this year. They hope you enjoy it as much as they have enjoyed this year!

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!
