Together We Grow

New & Returning Students Apply 

As a new family, there are a few questions

I'd like to ask.  Please call the school office at 306-953-7551.

École Holy Cross

Is a single track Kindergarten to Grade 8 French Immersion School located on the East side of the city. The school attendance area is from 6th Avenue East to east the side of the city and from the river to the southern city limits. Also included are the Osborne and East Central bus areas. Currently the student population is 315 students.

As a single track and early immersion school this means that the entire population is enrolled in French with points of entry in Kindergarten and Grade 1.

École Holy Cross welcomes all Catholic families in the attendance area who wish to offer their child the gift of a second language. If you have any questions please contact the school office at (306) 953-7551.

Our Patron Saint

Our school is named in honour of the Holy Cross.  It is in the cross that we see the central message of our faith; that out of love for us Jesus died and rose for all of us.  In life, the cross brings us great hope. 

In our daily journey, we sometimes find ourselves facing difficulty.  Jesus invites us to look to the cross for help and inspiration.  The cross helps us to remember the great love that Jesus has for us and that we can turn to him in time of need.  By looking to the sacred image of the cross, we can have faith that Jesus will help us in the difficult times in life.  The cross of Christ is great a symbol of amazing hope in life.

We celebrate the feast of the Holy Cross at our opening mass, which coincides with the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on September 14th.

The Prince Albert Roman Catholic Separate School Division is pleased to announce that each grade 7 student will receive a laptop courtesy ComKids!

 

The Prince Albert Catholic School Division, in partnership with ComKids, has piloted a computer literacy and online safety course for all Grade 7 students this year. Students from St. John Community School, St. Michael Community School, St. Francis School, École Holy Cross and École St Anne School participated in lessons, activities, and videos created by the ComKids and the Toronto Police Service. Almost 200 laptops will be provided to the Grade 7 student participants within our school division in the coming days.

 

The schools partook in the pilot from January 2022 to June 2022. The program's core principles are to develop digital literacy skills and learn to use technology safely and effectively.

The ComKids' masterclasses have connections to the grade 7 curriculum within Health Education, English Language Arts, Career Education, and Social Studies. Topics included:

 

  1. Online safety and maintaining digital footprints

  2. Computer literacy

  3. Becoming engaged and educated citizens in a digital world

  4. Computer tools and how to use them

  5. Becoming a responsible person online

Throughout the five masterclasses, students were provided with opportunities to learn technical skills and instruction while maintaining a digital footprint.

 

The Board of Education would like to thank our Grade 7 teachers, Principals and Vice-Principals, Jordan Carriere Consultant and IT Manager Sean Kenny for their dedication to participating in the pilot program. The Board would also like to thank ComKids for their support, 200 laptops, and resources for this initiative. The School Division is excited about the program and expects to extend the program to the new group of grade 7 students in the next school year!
