About our School

Holy Cross Primary School, New Gisborne, was established in 1996 to accommodate the needs of Catholic education in the Parish of St Brigid’s, Gisborne. Holy Cross is a sister school to St Brigid’s Primary School in Gisborne. The Holy Cross site is five kilometres north of St Brigid’s and draws upon the populations of Macedon, Mt Macedon, Riddells Creek, parts of Gisborne and New Gisborne itself. Holy Cross is located in the foothills of the Macedon Ranges in a rural environment. The view to Mt Macedon from Holy Cross is magnificent, especially after a snowfall, which is a common occurrence during the winter months. The Holy Cross site of twenty two acres provides large open spaces for both play areas and future growth. It currently has 14 classrooms, an administration building, an olive grove, veggie garden, chickens, sheep and a fully operational vineyard. Our children are at the centre of all that we do at Holy Cross and our community is committed to ensuring that each child feels safe, welcome and part of our family. Holy Cross is a warm and welcoming school community. We have a strong vision and a commitment to a partnership of family, parish and school working together for our children's education and wellbeing. Our school has a strong emphasis on providing children with a wide variety of hands-on experiences, particularly through our Outdoor Education program.
