Central to the religious life of the school is the person of Jesus Christ who came among us ‘as one who serves’ (Luke 22.27). Our Catholic school is committed to reaching out to help those in need, through charitable outreach initiatives. All outreach activities connect to the person of Jesus Christ and to the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Drawing on the Catholic Social Teaching of the Church, we have a deep commitment to supporting a range of charitable organisations, families and individuals in need.
Holy Cross Catholic Primary School Woollahra promotes and values social teaching as an important part of the life of the school. Students engage in Outreach programs such as visiting the aged care facility and regular fundraising for charities. Students in Years 5-6 engage in the Mini Vinnies program. Our family educator organises parents to cook blessing meals for members of the community who are unwell or are in need of care.
