Our parents are important members of our community. As such their involvement in the school is very much appreciated by the entire school community.
Parents are welcome to join the Parents’ and Friends’ Association, nominate for the School Council, volunteer a few hours each month in the canteen or visit the school whenever the opportunity arises.
The School Council advises and supports the Principal in the Christian formation and education of students, as well as overall management and forward planning issues for the school.
Although the Council does not involve itself in the internal operations of the school, it is an important avenue by which the expectations of the parent community can be communicated to the Principal and staff.
The Council regularly organises parent meetings on issues of concern (for example uniform and resource provision).
The Xavier High School Council of 2011 comprises the following people:
The Principal: Mr Gavin Dykes
Representative of the Parish Priests: To be Advised

Parents’ & Friends’
The Parents’ and Friends’ Association organises activities for parents and fundraising activities for the school. P&F meetings provide a forum for discussion and support among parents. Funds raised provide students with extra facilities and equipment.
Meetings are held each Term. The date and time for each meeting is advertised in the weekly newsletter.
The Xavier High School Parents’ & Friends’ Association and Parent Liaison Group are keen to have you involved with the activities of the school.
Our P & F provide support for the school with fundraising, cooking at House BBQs and sporting carnivals and provide a representative on the School Council. We are seeking your support in areas where many hands make light work.
