Dear parents and learners:

Please note that Holy Cross High School will close for a two week break. After that we will open again for grade 10, 11 and 12 as per the current time tables. Grade 12s’ note you may have extra classes during the Holiday based on what your educators require. I will be postingthe weekly planning on Sunday and expect learners will attend to that over the two weeks break which we are taking. As an independent school our arrangements will differ from Government and we are confident that all is in order regarding our coverage of the syllabus.

22 May 2020;12:00 Return or not posterDear parents by now we all know that the department of Basic Education is intending to follow a staggered return to school. So the information with the highest probability of being correct is that we will be starting on 1 June for grade 12 learners only. Although there are suggested dates for the other grades we cannot with certainty accept that this will be the case.
In this regard Holy Cross High School will continue with the online support going forward. Especially where parents do not wish to send their learners to school – we will still be teaching online. This will include all assessment as required for the year to be able to progress. However, parents will need to ensure that their learners are engaging,.
I invite any parent who wishes to participate in an online teacher/parent meeting, that they please book a time through school reception. On Wednesday 27 June I will send a more detailed procedure for returning or staying at home.
14 May 2020, 12:00 Dear parents please note we are continuing with our online teaching. There is still much uncertainty about when learners return to school. For the time being we stay alert for any messages from the Department of Basic Education. What is of critical importance is that parents follow up on learners at home. We are in the process of preparing midterm progress reports to assist in gauging where learners stand academically. Please note we have been sending weekly planning for all subjects to all the email adresses we have for parents. If you are not receiving the planning documents please inform the school.
 27 April 2020, 12:00 Dear staff, learners and parents. Please see the infographic added here on the right. It gives an indication of the buy in by learners. Please continue to pay your school fees and we will continue to deliver quality education, albeit online.
13 April 2020, 19:00 Dear Parents and learners:
An email with our current status and interim assessment plan has been sent to you all. The assessment plan is also in the school online menu under Previous Versions and Links

  • Dear Parents:
    We are pleased to announce that we are ready with our complete online solution for missed academic time during the lockdown.  We have made the approach as simple as possible. Anyone can access the information and it is purposely easy to access. Each grade has the teachers name, subject and email attached. Teachers can be mailed directly. We will also have assessment activities for all the subject and they will be assessed for CAPS purposes. I encourage parents to contact us for any queries – the staff is on standby and ready to serve. Please visit School Online here you will find our content and any external content promoted by the Dept of Education or NGOs  which our educators deem safe and useful.
