Southern Cross District High School is an Independent Public School catering for the needs of approximately 70 Kindergarten to Year 10 students in the Eastern Wheatbelt Education Region. The school is small enough to allow for a personalised approach to teaching and learning while maintaining a breadth of curriculum and resourcing. Community support is valued and we aim for a partnership in education between students, teachers, parents and the broader community.
Teaching skills and expertise are shared across our primary and secondary contexts to enrich the learning of our students. Early Childhood, Middle and Upper Primary Teachers together with support staff, provide innovative and engaging classes. Our specialist teachers in secondary school deliver a diverse curriculum, enabling students to successfully proceed to Senior Schooling.
Learning technologies play a big part in our teaching and learning programs with all students having access to high quality wireless technology throughout the school, Interactive White Boards and banks of laptops and i-pads to facilitate learning in each subject area.
Southern Cross DHS is a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) school, with our five behaviour expectations known by the STARS acronym- Safety, Take Responsibility, Achieve, Respect, Support.
The community of Southern Cross is very supportive of the school and this is evident by the active Parent & Citizens Association and School Board. The school has also developed close links with local businesses, the Shire of Yilgarn, St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School and Moorine Rock Primary School. 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.
