St Francis Xavier Catholic Primary School is a Catholic co-educational school for students from Prep to Year Six. It was established in 1935 by the Sisters of Mercy and is part of the Rockhampton Diocese of Catholic Education.

Our Motto – In Christ We Grow – reflects the central theme of Catholic education. Our aim is to nurture students in a caring environment, encouraging them to strive for their personal best and teaching them values and skills to become life-long learners.

Please browse through our web site to experience the unique nature of our school and the multitude of opportunities that are available to our students.

 

Day for Daniel

Last term we implemented the Daniel Morecombe Child Safety Curriculum and on Friday 27th October, we will join the rest of Australia in acknowledging 'Day for Daniel'. It is a child safety and protection initiative that aims to help empower our children to Recognise, React and Report if they feel something is not right. 'Wear Red and Education' is the theme of 'Day for Daniel'.

All students are invited to wear something red for a gold coin donation. Students must wear sun safe clothing and wear shoes and socks.

We are looking forward to providing this safe and convenient online ordering system for you and your family.

The current paper bag system will still be available until the end of Term 4, but moving forward, we encourage the use of online ordering.

CHILD PROTECTION

Protecting Children is Everybody’s Business - Play Your Part”

At St Francis Xavier, keeping children safe is a priority. We educate the students on matters of cyber-safety, who to go to if your personal safety is threatened and through the support of our brilliant adopt-a-cop, Sgt Helen. There are posters in learning areas identifying the Student Protection Officers. I also speak with the students at the beginning of the year about personal safety when it comes to physical, emotional, sexual or cyber abuse.

Below are links to a number of resources for your perusal on child protection. These documents are also in the school office. I would urge parents to take time to discuss this issue with the children.
