At Xavier Catholic Primary School we believe that our children are precious and unique individuals, made in the image and likeness of God. This belief drives our 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, were we respect and value that children learn in different ways and that learning expectations and opportunities may need to be modified at different stages of development. We spend time getting to know our students well and identify their particular strengths. We believe 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 our profoundly changing global world.
Families are strongly encouraged to be involved themselves in all aspects of school life and to become familiar with and support our whole school policies and class and community functions. Families are invited and indeed encouraged to assist in classrooms and help out when required. Children benefit enormously by families being generous with their time, gifts and talents, and in turn our whole school continues to flourish.
