Xavier operates a 3-year-old pre-kindergarten program and Outside School Hours Care service for school families on the school site. Xavier Catholic School prides itself on being a family-friendly, educational environment that endeavours to work in partnership with families in the education of their children. Therefore, we recognise that parents/guardians are the first educators of their children, and we wish to work together to support our families in this vital task.

VISION STATEMENT

Based on Gospel values, Xavier School is committed to the development of the whole child, assisting all students to foster a sense of self-worth, have high expectations and to reach their full potential.

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

Here at Xavier, we believe that our children are precious and unique individuals, made in the image and likeness of God. This belief drives our philosophy that a child’s opportunity to learn must be respected and valued at all times. The staff at Xavier use teaching and learning strategies that align with a developmental approach. In other words, we respect and value that children learn in different ways and that learning expectations and opportunities may need to be modified at different stages of development.
