Message from the Principal

St Mary of the Cross Catholic Parish School is administered by the Brisbane Catholic Education Office on behalf of the Archbishop of Brisbane. Building on the work of the leaders of this school since 1929 this fine school is a privilege and honour.

 
As a community of faith within the Archdiocese of Brisbane, St Mary of the Cross is committed to an educational ministry that embraces and promotes lifelong faith learning.
 
 As a Catholic School:
 
  • we are a multicultural, inclusive school not a private school
  • we celebrate difference and promote friendship and peace
  • we nurture a personal spirituality
  • we encourage and celebrate a love of learning
  • we recognize, value and access all available resources for the continued development of the learning environment;
  • we empower children to be individual, self-confident and considerate.
  • we offer specialist lessons from Prep to Year Six in Spanish, PE, Music, Visual Arts, Drama, Library and yoga.
  • we have an outstanding before, after and vacation care program who exceeded ratings in all seven of the National Quality Standards
  • we offer air conditioning and excellent access to technology across all year levels.
 
If you share these values, beliefs and opportunities we invite you to apply for enrolment.
 
Please contact me if you would like more information about our wonderful school.
