Principal's Welcome

I welcome your interest in St Francis Xavier’s College and I hope that our website provides you with worthwhile information.

The students at this College are in their final years of education. It is a time of great excitement, opportunity and responsibility. These two years will have a significant impact upon the opportunities that they will have in their future.

I believe that it the purpose of every school to provide the appropriate pathway for its students to achieve at their full potential. To this end, it is imperative that teachers and students work in unison to achieve the best possible outcomes.

I believe that it is important that the students make the most of the opportunities that are available. Accordingly, students at St Francis Xavier’s College will be expected to apply themselves to the best of their abilities. For a student undertaking senior studies this will mean studying beyond the classroom so that they are able to gain a thorough understanding of their subjects. Those students who believe that it is appropriate to only meet the minimum requirement, will not reach their full potential and eventually underperform in the Higher School Certificate.

Above all else St Francis Xavier’s College is an educational community that believes in a holistic approach to education. Fundamental in this approach are the Catholic traditions that are embraced in the College where the Gospel values are promoted and experienced.

The College will also offer a range of opportunities for students to develop and showcase their talents. Such opportunities exist in sporting, performing and public speaking endeavours. All students are encouraged to be involved in extracurricular activities so that they can realise their full potential.
