We are guided as a school community to live out these core values and to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, and in the spirit of our founders, The Mercy Sisters and Christian Brothers. It is through the formal Religious Education program at Xavier, as well as our Faith Formation Program that we strengthen the Catholic Identity of our school, and provide opportunities for all members of our community to grow in their journey of faith, learning and life.
Our Catholic Identity is an expression of who we are as a school community. It is emphasised in opportunities for Liturgy, service and social justice. It is visible through our commitment to Christ in the way we call all members of our community to put faith into action, through a variety of experiences which allow students and staff to develop a deeper understanding of their faith and a stronger awareness of God’s presence in their lives.
Faith formation is an integral part of our school community. It primarily includes Liturgy, service and social justice. It is visible through our commitment to Christ in the way of our St Vinnies Group, whole school liturgy, passion for social justice that are students are actively engaging in a developing a broader understanding of faith and spiritual development. Our Faith Formation Program at Xavier High School enables our students to gain a deeper understanding of their spiritual self.
Through their education at Xavier High School and their active participation in faith formation, Xavier is able to confidently watch each student graduate at the end of Year 12 as good Christian citizens.
These values have been summarised into our “5 C’s”, as we endeavour to be courageous, compassionate, collaborative, challenged and Christ-like.
