 Senior Celebration Evening

On Wednesday 29 October Xavier celebrated our annual Senior Celebration Evening. The Art display, video showreels from Drama, and Film & TV students were all very well received. We were also entertained by our magnificent Strings Ensemble, Choir and Concert Band.
A major focus of the evening was celebrating the achievements of our senior students throughout the year in areas of Spiritual and Community contributions, Co –Curricular Awards, Academic Excellence and Academic Application and Effort. Feedback on the whole night has been very positive. The major awards for the evening are the Principal’s Awards which are given to Yr 12 students who have demonstrated and sustained the Ignatian ideals of competence, conscience and compassion with an attitude of excellence and service throughout their time at the College.
