Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care is available to all members of the school community and seeks to awaken and strengthen their personal faith commitment.

Xavier College teachers and administrators, both Jesuit and lay, are more than academic guides. They are involved in the lives of the students, taking a personal interest in their intellectual, affective, moral and spiritual development and helping each one to develop a strong sense of self-worth, to exercise freedom responsibly, and to become a person of conscience within the community.

We seek to develop a set of values that go beyond ‘the self’ and lead to life choices that include a concern for the needs of others.

A Jesuit education promotes the belief that individuals should feel genuinely cared for and their achievements and contributions should be valued by others and themselves.

Staff and students alike are governed by a commitment to ‘Cura Personalis’, or ‘care for the individual’.

  • Classroom Teachers

    At Xavier we recognise that the quality and dedication of the teaching staff are fundamental to our ability to provide the highest quality education for our students. The College recruits teachers who are innovative, inspirational and who relate well to children at all levels.

  • Tutors and Home Room Teachers

    Individual students and their teachers have support from a wide range of partners – Jesuit priests, Heads of House, Tutors, Learning leaders, Home Room and subject Teachers, School Counsellors, Careers Counsellors, Faith and Service Co-ordinators, Boarding staff and sporting coaches. Each student is cared for individually acknowledging the partnership that exists between the College and the child’s family.
