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.

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.
