Schools AustraliaÂ introduces Holy Cross College Ryde in Ryde, for all your education and learning needs.
A Catholic systemic day school for boys from Year 7 to Year 12. We are proud of our College and hope that the information at this site will help you to learn about the College. For new parents and students this is a major function of the site, while for present and past parents, staff and students it will be a way of keeping in touch with the dynamic changes at the College.
Holy Cross College was founded in 1891 by the Patrician Brothers. To this day it occupies the commanding position in Ryde which the Brothers purchased in 1896. The massive main sandstone building was opened in 1898. For decades the College served N.S.W. as a boarding school. Responding to pressure from a local housing boom, by 1970 all boarding places were phased out and the College became a day school only.
The College flourished in part because of its traditions – academic and sporting success, magnificent grounds and a proud list of notable ex-students. These did much to seal its present reputation.
Welcome to Holy Cross College Ryde one of the popular educators in your Ryde area. Our aim is help you in your learning journey.
We endeavour to celebrate each otherâ€™s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability.Â We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
