Mobile Phones

At Xavier we believe in providing students with opportunities to learn how to balance mobile phone usage appropriately to prepare them for life beyond school.

Mobile phones may be used at recess and lunch times and in the classroom at the direction of the teacher. They should be turned off at all other times (this includes during study lessons). Inappropriate use of a mobile phone will result in its confiscation.

Our Mobile Phone policy can be viewed in the link below.

Modes of Transport

Bikes - Bike racks are provided near the Fallon St Gate. Bikes & helmets should be locked for the duration of the school day.

Buses - Please go to the NSW Department of Transport to apply for a bus pass for your child. Bus passes are handed out in homeroom once received from the bus company. Further information regarding travel to school by bus can be found by following this link School students and opal flyer

The pick-up and drop-off of students is recommended on Fallon Street (paying attention to the parking signs as parking authorities conduct random checks from time to time). It is not recommended to use Currawong Street or Curlew Crescent. Buses currently use these two streets and as such the congestion in the streets has the potential to cause a significant accident along with restricting access for residents to their own properties.

Please ensure you do not park over any of the car park driveways as this blocks staff & visitors to the school from coming or going.

Please do not double park as this poses a safety risk.

Student Technology

At Xavier, each student is issued their own device, a Chromebook, to assist with their Learning. The cost of the device is included in the school fees and is updated every two years, ensuring we keep the latest technology in the hands of our students.

Students are supplied with a device, carry case and a charging cord.

It is imperative that students use their Chromebooks in an acceptable and ethical manner and as a learning tool. Programs that allow students to access the internet, online chat and email, should be used in a responsible manner. Breaches of the user agreement will result in disciplinary measures.
