Child Safety

Central to the vision of Our Lady of the Southern Cross is an unequivocal commitment to recognise the central place of faith and Gospel values in the way we interact with each other, value the individuality of each child and aspire to be a healthy, happy learning community that fosters rich and lasting relationships.


All staff, volunteers, contractors, clergy and board/school council members at Our Lady of the Southern Cross are expected to actively contribute to a school culture that respects the dignity of its members and affirms the Gospel values of love, care for others, compassion and justice. They are required to observe child safe principles and expectations for appropriate behaviour towards and in the company of children.
