The Xaverian Values


Xaverian is devoted to its mission. Our ceaseless enthusiasm and spirit promotes courage and positive action. Our ardent desire to be the very best we can be, encourages our young people to  develop more than just their academic abilities, but also to strive for better personal growth. Zeal brings us together as equals and strengthens our community.


Our community is one that practises true compassion and urges individuals to act on this through good deeds. Through mercy and forgiveness, those within our community seek to serve, not just themselves, but each other and all those who are in need of social justice. By showing compassion in our everyday lives at Xaverian, those we encounter, will in their turn, go out and show the same compassion to others.


Humility leads us to great actions of service to others and unifies us in our praise of the talents and abilities of others, whilst accepting our own strengths and limitations. This acceptance of who we are and who others are, allows for harmonious relationships and promotes complete inclusivity and teamwork.


By encouraging our Xaverian Community to grow and be nurtured in an environment of trust, staff and students alike flourish confidently and independently. When staff and students are trusted, they establish genuine friendships, they practise respect and maturity. Through trust, all members of our College, regardless of faith or creed, find a common meeting point that is steeped in God’s love.


Simplicity is the unifying virtue that brings together all of the Xaverian Values into a modest way of life; one which is rooted in humility and acts compassionately, where a person trusts completely in God and has zeal for the Xaverian mission. Simplicity frees the heart and mind of petty troubles, allowing more thought and action for God’s work.
