Merciful Father, here our prayer and console us. As we renew our faith in Your Son, whom You raised from the dead, strengthen our hope that all our departed brothers and sisters will share in His resurrection, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Sacrament of Confirmation
Congratulations to the 30 Year 6 students who received the Sacrament of Confirmation last Sunday. It was a wonderful celebration led by the Vicar General Fr. Peter Whitely. A big thank you also to Fr. Mark, Mrs Konle, Mr Paul Leeder, Mr Mario Leeder, Xavier Staff and especially Mr Tucker and Miss Cresswell for all the hard work that went into preparing the students and the service.
As there are only 5 weeks until the end of the school year, this is a reminder to all families that payment of outstanding school fees must be finalised as soon as possible. The payment of fees is part of the contract of enrolment and is essential for the efficient financial management of the school. Please do not hesitate in contacting myself or Finance Officer, Rosa Bicknell if you would like to discuss your child’s school fees.

Congratulations to all the students who competed in last week’s Interschool Athletics Carnival. Xavier started the second day of the carnival in sixth place out of eight schools.

Well done to the following students who achieved a medal for their year level:
Leeuwin Briggs – Runner-Up Champion Year 5 Boy
Stella Slee – Runner-Up Champion Year 6 Girl

Silly Scientist Science incursion
On Wednesday 25th our K-6 students participated in a science incursion by ‘The Silly Scientist’. We watched an interactive performance with music and science experiment demonstrations.
