About our school

Our school is inspired by the model of St Francis Xavier, a man who served others and spent his time bringing the good news of Jesus to those he encountered. This is our mission too, to educate our young people to understand the values modelled by Jesus of trust, respect, forgiveness and care and live these out daily.

Our staff work collaboratively to plan learning experiences that cater for the needs of every student in our care. We work in teams to analyse student data and bring this together with what we know and understand about our students to ensure that our teaching is targeted and purposeful, always aimed at supporting the student to grow and progress. This sits within our commitment to the well-being of each student, knowing that when students are happy, settled and secure at school, learning flows naturally.

Our school community embraces diversity and values the partnership we have with each family. We work with our families to enhance the learning of every student and value the contributions our families make to the life of the school through the School Advisory Council, the Parents and Friends Association, classroom helpers and volunteering. We look forward to partnering with you as your child commences their learning journey here with us, and know that you will grow to love this community as much as we do.

Principal's Message

This is my second year as proud Principal of St Francis Xavier, a school where we focus on developing the whole person; each student’s physical, social and emotional well-being, academic growth and progress and a deep understanding of their spirituality grounded in the Catholic Tradition.

Students are actively engaged in their learning and embrace a comprehensive curricular and extra-curricular program. Our classrooms are places of inspiration, challenge and collaboration where our teachers tailor the learning for the needs of each individual student, always focusing on high-quality learning outcomes.

Our core values of trust, respect, forgiveness and care as modelled by Jesus in the Gospel narratives inspire us to become better people each day. They are the foundation for all our interactions within the community and help create an environment where each individual is nurtured and deeply respected.

Principal, Mary Jones.
