Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me. Amen.

Easter Hat Parade

As part of our Easter celebrations this year, Xavier will be having an Easter Hat Parade! This will be for all year levels. Children will be making their hats at school with their buddy class. For this event to run smoothly, we are asking if parents can please donate some Easter craft materials such as stickers, little chicks, plastic Easter eggs, shredded paper etc. If you able to donate some items to your child/ren’s class, can we please have these by the beginning of Week 7. We are looking forward to seeing what the children create. The Parade will be near the end of the day on Wednesday 27 March and all are welcome!
