 Leadership Address - Term 4, Week 3, 2016

Visit by Principal appointed for 2017
Mr. Simon Dash, who has been appointed Principal at Xavier from 2017, visited the school this week. Simon was able to meet with various groups of staff to begin to gain an understanding of how Xavier operates.

Successful Buthu Misson Week
Buthu House led by Mrs Dani Wright and Mr. Tony McQuaid held a very successful Mission week with many  engaging activities for our students including the Coin Challenge and the Crazy sock day. They were raising money for two organisations- Jesuit Mission and Catholic Mission.

Visit by French students and staff
It is exciting to hear the sounds of French being spoken (or trying to be spoken!) across the yard with 35 students and 3 staff spending time at the College from St. Joseph’s in Avignon. We thank families across the College for hosting and feel sure that it will be a rewarding experience for all.

WONDER – College production
Our amazing College production will be drawing the crowds in this week. JPAC has been transformed into a space to allow the students to present their body of work to our college community. Tickets are available through QKR! or you are able to buy them at the door before the performance. We wish this group all the best and sure that they will be successful.

Grandparents Day
This Friday we celebrate Grandparents Day with a Junior School liturgy in Goa starting at 9.00am. We welcome all grandparents and families to this celebration where we acknowledge the important nurturing role that grandparents play in their grandchildren’s lives each day. All visitors are invited to stay for a morning tea after our liturgy. We look forward to sharing this morning prayer celebration with our families.
