XAVIER Catholic Pri­mary School be­lieves chil­dren are pre­cious and unique in­di­vid­u­als made in the im­age and like­ness of God.

This be­lief drives the school’s phi­los­o­phy that a child’s op­por­tu­nity to learn must be re­spected and val­ued at all times.

The staff at Xavier use teach­ing and learn­ing strate­gies that align with a de­vel­op­men­tal ap­proach.

They re­spect and value that chil­dren learn in dif­fer­ent ways and learn­ing ex­pec­ta­tions and op­por­tu­ni­ties may need to be mod­i­fied at dif­fer­ent stages of de­vel­op­ment.

Teach­ers spend time get­ting to know stu­dents well and iden­ti­fy­ing their par­tic­u­lar strengths.

Xavier be­lieves that ed­u­cat­ing the heart of each in­di­vid­ual is the way to help de­velop cit­i­zens of the fu­ture who are able to suc­cess­fully take their place in the pro­foundly chang­ing global world.

Fam­i­lies are en­cour­aged to get in­volved, to sup­port whole school poli­cies, join in class and com­mu­nity func­tions and are in­vited to as­sist in class­rooms when re­quired.
