Being on a team promotes cooperation and leadership skills for students while helping them to build self-confidence and improve their skills in that particular activity.

As part of the School Safety Patrol Program conducted by the Winnipeg Police Department, students in Grades 5 and 6 have an opportunity to serve their school community by acting as crossing guards at intersections near the school from 8:00 a.m. to 8:25 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. daily. Students wishing to be patrols must fill out an application form, with the required parent signature. The staff member in charge of patrols will then take responsibility for their training and supervision. All students are expected to obey the directions of the crossing guards.
Holy Cross School organizes a student council for students in Grades 6 – Grade 8 to support the development of strong leadership skills. A teacher coordinator supports the council through meetings and decisions related to the organization of special activities for all students. Special events include the Catholic Schools Week activities.
8 students and teachers will be divided into six houses with everyone mixed together (not grouped by grade). House Day Assemblies are celebrations, competitions or other activities where houses work together to achieve a common goal and recognize successes planned by the Gr. 8 students of a house.
Each year, Holy Cross School produces an exceptional yearbook that records the activities that students have participated in during the academic year. Students take photos, create write-ups about several events and work to develop the style of each year’s final product before it is printed by the end of June.
