Our Community

Our community is made up of many diverse industries including mining and agriculture, and families of whom several have been in the district for generations. Our school recognises that parents and the broader community play a vital role in supporting our initiatives and intentions.


Our People

Southern Cross District High School has forged strong links with the community through partnerships with the local Shire, businesses, mining companies, sporting organisations and neighbouring schools. These partnerships are strengthened through our staff, many of whom play an active role in the broader community, in a variety of capacities.


Southern Cross offers a range of relaxing activities and opportunities for most people living in the community. Further information about what is on offer in Southern Cross can be found on the Shire of Yilgarn website.
