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 and is the result of St Brigid’s outgrowing its site. The Holy Cross site is some five kilometres north of St Brigid’s and draws upon the populations of Macedon, Mt Macedon, Riddell’s 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 eight hectares provides large open spaces for both play areas and future growth. It has 14 permanent classrooms, an administration building and a fully operational vineyard.


Holy Cross is a recently established school with a very enthusiastic and dedicated school community. We have a strong vision and a commitment to the vision of a 'partnership of family, parish and school working together' for our children's education. Our school has a strong emphasis on Religious Education, Literacy, Numeracy, Information Technology and hands-on Science as a means of enhancing teaching and learning practices.
