Welcome to St Francis Xavier’s School. We are committed to providing a supportive and positive learning environment in which your child’s individual skills and talents will be identified and nurtured so that they have a sense of belonging, a love of learning and respect for each other.
Providing a distinctive ‘Catholic Education’ with a real-life and inclusive approach to Religious Education and spiritual formation, St Francis Xavier’s strives to live out its motto – To Know, Love and Serve God and each other.
With a commitment to educational excellence, the school facilitates student learning through the employment of good teaching and learning practices with the use of technologies which engage and motivate enquiring minds. Curriculum is increasingly delivered digitally through the use of interactive whiteboards and other technological tools. Learning is seen as an active process where knowledge is constructed as well as acquired.
We have a strong commitment to the health and well-being of every child and focus on developing healthy relationships and positive thinking skills reflected in our school values – Respect, Caring, Learning and Enjoyment. Our Social Emotional Learning program and the Buddy program support these.
Welcoming international visitors from Japan provides wonderful opportunities for learning, growth and friendships. The biannual excursion to Japan by St Francis Xavier’s staff and students is a major highlight and enables our students to experience first hand another culture.
