Vertical House System
Our vertical House System affords the opportunity for strong community bonds to develop between students across year levels
and with a core team of staff. The resulting mentoring that we witness between senior and junior students, the pride in
House achievement and the social outreach that occurs within these groups symbolises the strength of our wellbeing approach.
Students embrace leadership roles within their Houses, embarking on initiatives that enhance the school community.
Working closely as a team, our House Coordinators guide, support and challenge our students to be their best in all their endeavours.
Reinforcing high expectations of our students, the team endeavours to provide a variety of experiences that grow student
self-belief and empathy.
Rita Pierson tells us “Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power
of connections and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” It is this premise that underpins our
Wellbeing approach at Xavier High School.
