The Sports Scotland Gold School Sport Award has been awarded to Holy Cross High School. This is a tremendous achievement for our school as we are one of only six schools in Scotland to have been presented with such a prestigious award.
We have received a letter of thanks for the money raised for our ‘sponsor a kitchen project ‘in Malawi. The total sum of £8432.87 raised from our Fashion Shows will be used to build a kitchen for Khola primary School, Blantyre in Southern Malawi which houses 1100 children. The money will pay for building and equipping a full sized kitchen where volunteers will be able to cook Likuni Phala (the local dish) every day for the children there.
The school uses an automated notification of absence system. This system sends a text or voice message to your home telephone or mobile notifying you of your son/daughters absence from school. Now that period by period registration is in use we will be able to identify and notify you should your child fail to turn up at their next timetabled class.
A group of two S2 classes at Holy Cross High School participated in a rap battle project called Word War in association with the Scottish Book Trust and the BBC’s Authors Live programme.
