Industrial Action - Friday 3rd February

Dear Parent/Carer

Industrial Action – Teacher Trade Unions

I wish to let you know of that the planned roll-out of strike days by members of the teacher trade unions will affect schools in South Lanarkshire on Friday 3 February 2023.

You may be aware that negotiations are continuing at a national level, but I would confirm that unless the strike is called off prior to this date the school will be closed on Friday 3 February 2023 for all pupils.

You may therefore wish to make contingency plans for childcare on Friday 3 February 2023.

School breakfast clubs will not operate on the day of the strike.

Yours sincerely

Mr J Reilly

Head Teacher

Silver Reading School Award

As of this year, Holy Cross is now an accredited Silver Reading School! 

Reading School is an accreditation programme run by Scottish Book Trust. It is aimed at schools that are committed to building a reading culture for learners and communities. At Holy Cross we strive to promote the importance of reading for pleasure and in doing so, run a number of initiatives to support pupils, parents and staff in their own reading journeys. With the help of our Reading Leaders we aim to enhance reading experiences in our school and, through our recent accreditation, have been acknowledged for the work we are doing. With regular updates on our school Twitter page, keep your eyes peeled for updates on the different reading activities and projects across the school. Happy reading!
