Junior School Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6

Junior School starts in the Early Learning Centre for Pre-Kindergarten to Year One.  At Holy Cross College we aim to foster the intellectual and creative development of inquisitive early learners inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to learning. The curriculum for our youngest students will promote a sense of identity and well being allowing for the development of confident and engaged learners. Children will be encouraged to develop an enjoyment of learning, an understanding of the world around them and a positive relationship with others. Our Learning Studios are set up in different areas to provoke curiosity, inquiry and exploration.  

Children starting in Year Two move up to the Fitzroy building where learning enhances, providing a firm foundation for future learning. The child-centred play-pased approach continues and is enhanced with the move through to concrete experiences and introduction of abstract thinking. There will be a focus on literacy and numeracy as well as on social, emotional and physical development. Holy Cross College is a future focused school and the use of information communication technology is an integral part of the learning programme.

Our Junior School has been specifically designed to promote collaboration and creativity in a safe and secure environment. It will include internal and external learning spaces and play areas where students can enjoy diverse and stimulating experiences. Junior School students will also have access to other specialist facilities in the College.


A second stream of Year 3, Year 4, Year Five and Year 6 is open for 2018. Prospective families are encouraged to take up this opportunity to secure a place of enrolment for their child or children. 

Applications are welcome for all year levels from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12.
