XAVIER CATHOLIC COLLEGE - HERVEY BAY
VALUES, VISION AND MISSION STATEMENT 2021
Our Xavier Values – Inspired by G.R.A.C.E.
Grace is a gift from God which is given freely from infinite love and cannot be earned.
Grace enables people to regenerate, to find holiness, to be inspired to do good and to be strong enough to face life's challenges and resist temptations.
Gratitude: Our school appreciates the gifts of God's grace that come to us each day and offers thanks to others and to God for these blessings.
Respect: Our school recognises that respect is the basis of all relationships and seeks to work in an atmosphere of mutual trust where everyone's contribution is valued.
Acceptance: Our school welcomes difference and accepts each person for who they are, appreciating the uniqueness of their feelings, thoughts, opinions and identity.
Compassion: Our school stands in solidarity with all who suffer, offering comfort and support with an attitude of joyful service.
Education: Our school is a community of learners where the quest for knowledge and truth, enlightened by faith, is desired by all.
