Principal’s welcome 2023February 1, 2023
I am delighted to be joining St Francis Xavier College as Principal in 2023!
St Francis Xavier College is an innovative, future focussed learning community dedicated to preparing our students for the joys and challenges of the 21st century. Our learning environment nurtures our students to be curious, adaptive thinkers and life long learners.
In an environment of holistic growth and opportunity our students are offered dynamic, deep learning experiences from Year 7-12.
The College offers a diverse range of learning opportunities for students to excel in academic pursuits such as English, Mathematics and the Sciences, the Humanities including Religious Education, History, Economics, Legal Studies, Sociology and Psychology, the Visual and Performing Arts, Languages, Sport, VET and Industry subjects, as well as a range of extra curricular endeavours. We are also deeply committed to social justice activities and invite our students to participate in these as an opportunity for community engagement and leadership.
I believe that relationships are central to learning and that that deep learning is significantly enhanced where trusted relationships are developed. Our students learn in an environment where they are able to take appropriate learning risks, secure in the knowledge that they will be supported and nurtured by an expert teaching staff who are dedicated to each students’ wellbeing and learning journey.
Guided by the charism of St Francis Xavier, the Patron Saint of Missions, our students are inspired to be the hearts and hands of Jesus, to live their lives with ‘Truth and Courage’ and to make a difference in their world now and in the future.
I invite you to take a look at our College website and to contact the College if you would like to know more about our learning community.
