Southern Cross District High School, is an Independent Public School, located in the Eastern Wheatbelt, providing contemporary education for around 60 students from Kindergarten to Year 10. Our small student population enables us to offer a personalised learning environment, whilst also providing a breadth of curriculum, teacher expertise and resourcing. Foremost, our school aims to empower students with the values, skills and knowledge essential in becoming valued members of their local community and beyond.
Staff and students strive to achieve their personal best, though we understand success comes in different forms for each individual. We embrace the Positive Behaviour Support Program and its central philosophy, that promoting positive behaviour and expectation creates the best learning environment and expect staff and students alike to reach for our Positive Behaviour Support 'Stars'.
Our highly motivated and caring staff provide quality learning opportunities for our students in a safe and supportive manner, with a strong emphasis on strengthening relationships. Specialised early childhood and primary teachers, together with support staff, deliver individualised, innovative and engaging programs. Our specialist secondary teachers provide a diverse curriculum so students positively transition to senior schooling and beyond.
Recognising that parents and the broader community play a vital role in supporting our initiatives, we have forged strong links with our local community, including the local mining and agriculture industry, as well as several families that have been in the district for generations, 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.
Southern Cross District High School provides a safe, happy and supported learning environment.
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.
